From Our Community, Friends and Family


My parents have lived at the waters for about 3 years now. We have certainly had our ups and downs here and my parents were pretty unhappy about 6 months into the pandemic. The problem is that every place else has the same restrictions and The Waters like everyplace else is trying to adhere to and follow the constantly changing guidelines and restrictions. There is also quite a bit of staff turnover but all other assisted living places are facing the same problems. I know this because I have done a lot of checking into other places. My parents ended up getting COVID at no fault of The Waters and the staff at The Waters was so caring, accommodating and understanding in helping us deal with the situation. I could not be more happy in how they have worked with us over the last few months. Now because my parents are living there they are able to get access to a vaccine and I am so grateful for that as well. And…. the food has gotten a lot better over the past few months. 😊. My parents being at The Waters has also given us the opportunity to get the COVID vaccine for which I am extremely grateful. They allowed “essential caregivers” of residents to get the vaccine. I am so thankful for that opportunity.

From the first day I walked in The Waters I knew I was going to be a part of something great. The feeling of happiness, the sound of laughter and the openness between the staff and residents. It was like one big family, everyone together all in the same place. I’ve been employed by The Waters for almost a year now and I’ve never had an employer show so much appreciation and gratitude. I love my job, my co-workers and of course my residents. The friendships are priceless❤️.

The Waters of WBL has done a great job of taking care of my Mother throughout the COVID pandemic. Their communication between family and residents has been clear and concise along with the proper plan of attack to prevent the spread of COVID. Their vaccine rollout to residents and staff was very well organized. I feel that my Mother is in good hands at the Waters of WBL. Anytime I call the Nurse’s Station, they always answer. The staff is always friendly and positive. I can’t say enough how pleased we are that our Mother is at the Waters of WBL.
