The Best Value in Connecticut Senior Living

The Watermark at East Hill in Southbury, CT is a Life Care retirement community that offers Independent Living, Assisted Living, Memory Care and Rehabilitation & Skilled Nursing on a 55-acre campus overlooking the stunning Pomperaug River Valley and just a short drive from historic Southbury.

The Club covers many aspects of wellness: Indulge, a full-service beauty salon and spa, Renew Wellness Center, which offers nutritional and preventive care, Vitality Fitness Center, complete with an indoor pool, and the eco-friendly Gallery Café. We know that challenging our minds and getting in better physical shape has enormous benefits at every age, and The Watermark at East Hill offers an ongoing course schedule of mind-expanding and body-toning classes through Watermark University.
