DALLAS, TX–A company committed to helping seniors thrive has begun managing a local retirement community, bringing it a new name and a host of signature resident engagement initiatives. Watermark Retirement Communities now operates The Preston of the Park Cities, formerly called HarborChase of the Park Cities. The community, which is owned and developed by Silverstone Senior Living, has become a Silverstone/Watermark community. Featuring resort-style amenities and concierge service, it is located at 5917 Sherry Lane, Dallas.
“For more than three decades, we have focused on helping seniors live to their full potential and discover new opportunities,” said Watermark President and CEO David Barnes. Watermark, based in Tucson, Arizona, operates more than 50 senior living communities nationwide. “With The Preston of the Park Cities setting the standard for elegant boutique living, we’re excited about making this an even more extraordinary place for residents and their families.”
The Preston of the Park Cities offers assisted living and memory care. The latter is now provided through Watermark’s signature program The Gardens, whose caregivers are trained and certified in partnership with the National Council of Certified Dementia Practitioners. The community also offers The Bridge, an assisted living option for residents with slight cognitive impairments who would benefit from guided support by specially-trained cognitive experts.
Other Watermark signature initiatives coming to The Preston of the Park Cities include the award-winning Watermark University. It features engaging classes taught and taken by residents, associates and the general public. The Extraordinary Outings program takes excursions beyond the expected. Both initiatives seek to introduce residents throughout the community to new ideas and opportunities to thrive.
