Watermark Retirement Communities is committed to creating welcoming, respectful, inclusive spaces where all people thrive. As part of this commitment, we are partnering with SAGE. SAGE is the country’s largest and oldest national organization dedicated to improving the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT or GLBT) older adults. Together, we’re creating opportunities for greater understanding and discussions about how to create welcoming communities where everyone thrives.
The Watermark at East Hill is proud to welcome and embrace all seniors. Recently, the leadership team at the community completed a training through SAGE. The training helped to educate community directors focus on ways the team can further improve and enhance the senior living experience for LGBT older adults. It is important to Watermark Retirement Communities and to The Watermark at East Hill specifically that older adults have the services, support, and care they need and deserve to successfully age. The training, developed in collaboration with The National Resource Center on LGBT and hosted by Watermark national resources, provided a wonderful opportunity for East Hill’s leaders to explore the community’s services, to think about ways to make the community even more inclusive, and to ensure all residents receive the best possible experience.
