Family Programming at The Waters
Connecting Families with Education and Resources to Enhance their Wellbeing
Our Wellbeing philosophy doesn’t stop with our Residents. Families are an integral partner at The Waters, and we strive to provide quality programming in a holistic manner to support their role as well. We’ve partnered with the Alzheimer’s Association, UBS Financial Services, National Parkinson’s Foundation and St. Croix Hospice to bring up-to-date and evidence based programs to empower families with knowledge and skills to support the caregiver, daughter, son, and other family member roles.
While the majority of offerings are intended for family members/caregivers, current and prospective residents are invited to attend as well. All sessions are free of charge and require advance registration. You can RSVP online through the web form provided or contact the hosting Waters community directly. We hope to see you there!

Alzheimer’s Association Presents: Partnering with Your MD
If you or someone you love is living with dementia, developing a good relationship with your physician and enhancing your communication skills can result in both an increased knowledge of the situation and decreased stress. This class helps care partners make informed decisions about care and services. This program is appropriate for both the care partner and the person with the disease.

St. Croix Hospice Presents: Veterans at End of Life
This presentation will provide attendees with an understanding the unique needs of veterans at end-of-life. As part of this presentation, we will take a brief look at the time periods our veterans would have served, as well as some of the health risks they may face due to their military service. We will also discuss the impact of military service on both the veteran and their family.
Dates will be announced in September.
This presentation will be hosted at all Waters communities.
