How Do I Know if The Circle Is the Right Choice for Me?

Deciding to move can be challenging at any age, but even more so when you’re moving into a retirement community. Choosing the home where you’ll spend your senior years means balancing your current and future needs in a very unique way. That’s why it’s important to choose a community that is more than just a place to live – it’s a place to live really well.


“Waterstone at the Circle offers residents an opportunity for an invigorating lifestyle without the day-to-day concerns of running a house,” says Mary Zabian, Senior Advisor of Waterstone at the Circle. “Seniors who are very much still active and independent will benefit from our lifestyle that focuses on freedom – because we take care of everything from housekeeping to transportation to maintenance and more. We offer an enriching social, cultural and recreational lifestyle that allows you to be as involved as you wish within our community, while providing you all the time in the world to pursue your passions and enjoy the things you have always loved.”


Mary says that one of the most common questions The Circle gets from prospective residents is, aren’t I too young/too healthy to move to a senior living community? “There’s no reason to wait until a health issue makes you think about a move,” she says. “A senior living community like Waterstone at the Circle allows you to embrace your retirement years and live life to the fullest.”


Mary says that many of the residents at The Circle say they wish they’d made the move to the community sooner. “A lot of people still have this picture in their head that retirement communities are for old people, but moving to a community like The Circle while you’re still young, active and healthy means you’ll be able to enjoy everything we offer,” she says. “Our community has been designed with older adults in mind, so it’s a perfect way to enjoy your retirement worry-free, knowing you have taken control of your future. With our on-site supportive services by premier healthcare partners, you can also get the services you need – right in the apartment you love.”


Are you interested in ... urban living in a supportive setting?

One of The Circle’s best features is that it’s located right in the heart of Boston. “What better way for Boston seniors to enjoy their retirement than by living in the city they know and love?” says Mary. The Circle is situated in the historic Cleveland Circle neighborhood, which offers convenient access to everything that Boston has to offer. “Residents are excited to get back to their usual lifestyle once all social distancing measures are lifted. We’re right in the heart of Boston’s culture, entertainment and shopping – with other destinations just a short ride away with public transportation or our in-house transportation service,” says Mary. Because The Circle is a 62+ community, it’s unique in the area in that it offers the urban lifestyle that you’d find at a downtown apartment complex, but has all the supportive and maintenance-free amenities that you’d find at other retirement communities – which are often located in the suburbs.


Can you picture yourself in ... maintenance-free, elegant independent living apartments?

What does “home” look like to you? Well, we believe that home is where your heart is, and you’ll fall in love when you call The Circle home. Our high-end, luxurious independent living apartments have been beautifully designed for function and fashion. Choose a floor plan that perfectly meets your needs, and don’t worry – we don’t require you to lock in with a contract or pay a hefty entrance fee. For one monthly fee, you enjoy the freedom of maintenance-free living plus the peace of mind that comes from knowing you’re able to do what you want with your life and your finances.


How does ... a focus on health and wellness sound?

Staying fit, active and healthy is key to aging well. We know that when you feel good, life is good, so we’ve designed all aspects of life at our retirement community to focus on optimal health and wellness. The Circle has an exclusive partnership with Train Boston®, which offers personal training and fitness classes in our state-of-the-art fitness center. Residents can get fit one-on-one on their own terms, or have fun in group activities like yoga, tai chi or aqua aerobics. Currently, with social distancing measures in place, residents can take advantage of Train Boston’s virtual fitness sessions.


What about ... doctors and physicians who make house calls?

As a 62+ community, we understand that our residents may require some health and wellness support in order to live their best lives. We’ve created partnerships with some of Boston’s best medical professionals and organizations to ensure our residents receive the care they need right in the comfort of their homes. We provide on-site coordinated programs to offer routine wellness visits, therapy sessions, home health coordination, doctor’s visits and so much more. It’s peace of mind in the privacy of your own place.


Wouldn’t you like to ... design a lifestyle perfectly suited to you?

What does “luxury” and “an active, independent lifestyle” mean to you? At The Circle, it means a concierge services, a private parking garage, an on-site movie theater and personal wine lockers. It means easy access to Greater Boston, and the ability to get up and go whenever you want. It means a full social and activity calendar that makes life engaging, fun and fulfilling – each and every day. It means whatever you want it to mean, and we’re here to help make it happen for you.


Can you imagine ... restaurant-style, gourmet dining three times a day?

Life at The Circle is delicious – literally. Our professional private chefs create masterpieces with seasonal offerings, locally sourced ingredients and ever-changing menus. There are few things more enjoyable than life than a good meal with friends and family. After all, meals are more than just a chance to eat – they’re opportunities to feed your soul and enjoy life.
