­Watercrest’s Signature Programming Enlivens Seniors at Watercrest Newnan Assisted Living and Memory Care

Watercrest’s signature programming enlivens seniors at Watercrest Newnan Assisted Living and Memory Care as residents joyfully attend a community harvest festival in Newnan, Georgia.

In our nation’s current state of social distancing and isolation guidelines, the leadership team at Watercrest Newnan Assisted Living and Memory Care is not only focused on residents’ health, but their physical and emotional well-being, as well. As part of their signature Live Exhilarated™ programming, Watercrest Newnan hosted a fall harvest festival to encourage residents’ social interaction and engagement, in a safe, and joyful atmosphere.

“As the holiday season approaches, it is increasingly important to foster relationships between our residents, associates and family members with unique events such as the harvest festival,” says Leisa Cawthon, Executive Director of Watercrest Newnan. “Our Watercrest specialized programming offers endless opportunities to ignite creativity, spark passion, and encourage interaction amongst residents.”

Watercrest Senior Living has a unique approach to healthy aging, focusing on individuals achieving personal wholeness through participation in programs aligned with seven facets of wholeness. These facets provide the Live Exhilarated™ program framework which focuses on celebrating the residents’ story, encouraging their pursuit of new passions, optimizing their experience, and offering variety and choice to all residents.

The Watercrest Newnan Harvest Festival attracted dozens of residents to Market Plaza, Watercrest’s uniquely designed ‘outdoor’ streetscape complete with salon and spa, bakery, post office and numerous LifeBUILT programming touches; a highlight and crucial element of their multi-sensory memory care programming. 

Homestead Hospice sponsored the community harvest festival, providing an array of games with prizes and volunteers manning the stations.  Residents were delighted to participate in the themed games and raffle, while taking home elegant party favors and scrumptious snacks.

Watercrest Newnan is ideally situated on nine picturesque acres at 285 Summerlin Boulevard in Newnan, Georgia, southwest of Atlanta.  The innovative design includes a stunning promenade, pool, fireplace, signature water wall, multiple dining venues, and children’s play space.
