Live fully with joy and purpose in an expanded memory care setting in the heart of Brooklyn Heights.
A diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease or dementia can be overwhelming for the entire family. As dementia progresses, it’s not easy to pinpoint when it’s time for memory care. While there’s no one-size-fits-all formula, there are signs that can indicate a loved one with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease may benefit from tailored support in a specialized memory care setting.
Have changes in behavior become unmanageable? Is confusion and disorientation jeopardizing their physical safety or someone else’s safety? Have they experienced a decline in physical health? Is their primary caregiver experiencing burnout? Are they disinterested in hobbies or activities that once brought them joy and purpose? If you answered yes to any of these questions, it may be time to explore an elevated senior living community with a safe and secure memory care neighborhood.

For those in need of additional care and comfort, The Watermark at Brooklyn Heights’ Memory Care neighborhood is expanding with extraordinary new residences and access to the community’s innovative programs and curated activities—along with dedicated dining options and abundant opportunities to engage, grow, and truly feel at home.
Here, members enjoy a premier experience that respects their unique life stories and helps them lead rewarding lives filled with transformative programming for holistic well-being and an unparalleled lifestyle that brings luxury and wellness together. With Watermark’s 30-year tradition of providing high-quality memory care programming, The Watermark at Brooklyn Heights is introducing a new era in memory care, with a focus on creating meaningful connections through mindful innovation.
Developed with the latest science to promote cognitive health, The Watermark’s enhanced approach begins with the groundbreaking Prema Memory Support℠ program that expands what’s possible each day, bringing empathy and expert care together in a setting filled with unconditional acceptance and compassion.
The experience begins with empathic universal caregivers known as Nayas, who are named after the ancient Sanskrit word for “guide” or “person of wisdom.” With a profound understanding of Watermark’s unparalleled care philosophy, Nayas creates deep connections with each member to provide a more customized level of care within a loving, nurturing environment. They use their specialized training and instincts to forge strong bonds and share daily moments filled with joy and purpose.
The Watermark offers additional signature programs that enhance the experience of living well and thriving in a state-of-the-art Memory Care neighborhood.
What does joy taste like? There’s something on the menu at The Watermark at Brooklyn Heights that you won’t find anywhere else: a unique recipe that combines accessibility, dignity, and gratification. Gourmet Bites Cuisine is a unique, inclusive program that transforms freshly prepared menu items into flavorful, nutritionally balanced bite-sized portions that delight the senses without the need for utensils or assistance.
To help fill each day with the warmth and comfort of home, the Personal Pantry program provides members with their own personal space to store favorite foods such as tea and scones, cookies, canned soups, and crackers—along with personal mementos like photographs, photo albums, books, games, and more. Always within easy reach, these beloved items can spark meaningful conversations and opportunities to rekindle memories during visits with loved ones.
EngageVR® empowers members to embrace rich possibilities for exploration and travel without even leaving the comfort of the community. Stimulating virtual reality experiences—such as watching the Apollo 11 moon landing, hiking through the Grand Canyon, visiting a childhood home, exploring the Titanic, or taking a trek through breathtaking landscapes on a wildlife safari—keep the mind active and engaged.
Discovery nourishes the soul, and excursions through the Extraordinary Outings program invite members to immerse themselves in cultural events, concerts, other attractions around the city, as well as overnight trips that go beyond day-to-day outings and shatter expectations of what’s possible.
Music has a special power to transport us to times and places — the first dance at your wedding, memories of singing in the church choir, or feelings of freedom as you drove down the highway with the windows down. The Thriving Through Music program ensures that each member who resides in the Memory Care neighborhood has a personalized playlist available at any time of day. The playlists are fun, and the music can be therapeutic, creating a relaxing moment of reflection, an energizing experience, or an impromptu singalong leading to pure joy.
