While addressing the healthcare needs that arise as we age, a high-tech, opulent adult lifestyle community in Houston is taking into account the fact that people are living active, vibrant lifestyles for longer. The Watermark at Houston Heights is a residence that provides both independent and assisted living. It is the first Élan Collection in Texas. The emphasis is on ageing in place, promoting healthy lifestyle habits, granting access to resources that increase longevity, and connecting older adults with healthcare professionals.
Think about its location first
It is located in Houston Heights, a vibrant, up-and-coming neighbourhood renowned for its excellent restaurants, shops, and nightlife. According to Forbes.com, the Elan concept was actually developed by a boomer (one with 35 years of experience in the retirement industry) for boomers.
Even the technology’s appearance has been updated. Instead of conventional alert buttons, these wearables are discrete. PalCare alerts are connected to a community-wide modular emergency call system to provide accurate location tracking and real-time location alerts for falls.
Another distinguishing feature is the programming. They have a private cable TV station that offers programming for a variety of interests, including yoga, meditation, theatre, and academic courses. Watermark even provides Oculus technology so that residents can virtually relive past interests (passions and interests they may no longer be able to partake in).
