Moving into an assisted living community is a personal choice. The right time for you may be different than the right time for someone else. However, there are signs to look for that may indicate that additional support is needed to help you remain safe and well. These signs include:

Nutrition: Declined interest in cooking. Poor eating habits. Weight loss.
Socialization: Less time spent with friends. Loneliness. Boredom. Depression.
Forgetfulness: Forgetting appointments, medications, important dates or events.
Appearance: Difficulty bathing or doing laundry. Poor hygiene or grooming.
Home maintenance: House or yard untidy. Papers, dishes, trash piling up.
Accidents: Falls. Balance issues. Difficulty walking or going up and down stairs.
Transportation: Declining driving skills. No access to transportation.

A move to assisted living can resolve all those issues, promoting both mental and physical wellness. With caring staff members on site and available 24-hours a day, an assisted senior living lifestyle provides personal support as well as an active, engaging lifestyle. Today’s senior living communities are filled with friends, social events, engaging programmings and services and amenities designed to bring happiness into every day. Older adults can live comfortably and with the peace of mind that long-term care is available on-site if it’s ever needed.

Here are some frequently asked questions (FAQ) future residents and family members may have about assisted living at Watertower:


We want your apartment to feel like home in every way possible. Watertower residents are encouraged to bring their favorite personal items, furniture, artwork and other items that will help make the space their own.

There’s no right or wrong time to move into an assisted living community. In fact, many older adults find that moving to assisted living sooner rather than later helps them live a lifestyle that’s even more independent and fulfilling than they can get living on their own.

In general, someone who is wondering if assisted living is right for them should consider beginning with a physician’s assessment. A doctor can help determine whether you or a loved one require a certain level of assistance in order to live safely. Usually, when it’s apparent that help with daily tasks is needed – such as managing medications, getting dressed, bathing, housekeeping and transportation – an assisted living residence may be the answer.

In assisted living, caring and trained professionals help older adults manage the tasks they need assistance with so seniors can continue to do the things they enjoy doing, preserving their independence.
