In Beverly Hills, one need not look too far to find inspiring stories for aging well. The Watermark at Beverly Hills, 220 North Clark Drive, is brimming with residents who are embracing what’s next in life. Rather than focus on what they can no longer do, they’re engaging in new passions and pursuits in the company of like-minded friends.
In addition to planning “extraordinary outings” to nearby places of interest, The Watermark at Beverly Hills gathers neighbors for theme parties, classes and cultural events. Here, chef-prepared meals are daily culinary events and local art shows feature resident produced works. In such an inspired setting, residents truly thrive.
“When you reach a certain age, it’s not realistic to think you’re going to be free of challenges,” explains Patricia Murphy, executive director of The Watermark at Beverly Hills. “Our viewpoint is that you don’t have to let those challenges consume you or prevent you from enjoying life fully. You just have to find the right surroundings and supportive environment.”
After enjoying a rooftop hula lesson at a recent luau at The Watermark at Beverly Hills, resident Riva Moskowitz said, “I love the parties and entertainment, especially the live music from the volunteers from my alma mater UCLA. I am the happiest I’ve been in my life living here and enjoy the journeys I embark on every day.”
Upon returning from a group excursion to the Long Beach Aquarium earlier this summer, 90-year old resident Pat Vittorio said, “I have lived here for eight years and loved every moment of it. Living here is like living with your own family.”
“The difference between struggling to get by on your own versus living in a place like The Watermark is that we encourage and support our residents in their pursuit of lifelong mind and body fitness,” Murphy added. “Life is for living well at every age and our residents are living proof that it’s much easier to live well in an environment that offers abundant choices for doing so.”
