The Watermark at Brooklyn Heights

truly feels like home

The 34 Memory Care residences on our first-floor neighborhood are created for the comfort and well-being of our residents.

Private and semi-private suites feature spacious common areas, an open kitchen with family-style seating, a private dedicated outdoor courtyard. More than safe and secure, our residences are comfortable and welcoming. They are a home.

Our groundbreaking Memory Care program features “Naya” caregivers. “Naya” means “guide” or “person of wisdom” in ancient Sanskrit, and our Nayas are indeed leaders in their field. Our Nayas guide our residents through each day with a deep understanding of who they are and what they are expecting, providing a truly person-centered experience.

They are experienced caregivers who treat every interaction as though they were caring for their own family member, incorporating leading techniques and strategies to serve Memory Care residents–and their families. 

Everything centers around safety, wellbeing, and connection: We rely on the Quake Global emergency response system, which features the latest in wearable technology, and our Community Life program utilizes personalized technology services to keep residents connected to their families. But we know that creature comforts matter, too—the Pantry Program ensures residents have easy access to their favorite comfort foods, while Gourmet Bites helps restore the pleasures of dining with dignity.

In addition to their wisdom, Nayas are empathic and caring, with a deep understanding of how to help residents thrive and grow. Their warmth and skill promote a profound sense of contentment and well-being among residents of Memory Care.

Memory Care programs

Pantry Program

This is a personal space for residents to store their favorite snacks and comfort foods. It’s also available as a storage spot for familiar items such as photographs, magazines, or anything that brings them joy and rekindles a memory.

Gourmet Bites

A program that enables residents to enjoy fine dining “bites” in a form that makes it easy for them to manage.


Virtual Reality Lounge Available to all residents, the virtual reality programs especially brighten the lives of residents with dementia, offering a way to “transport” them, virtually, to an exciting destination, such as the wreck of the Titanic, or an African safari. It also enables them to connect with people and environments across the globe and can help strengthen memory and mind

Global emergency response system

This cloud-based wearable technology system tracks, calls and reports, all in real-time detection whereabouts of residents throughout the community. Emergency response, security, sensor-based accessibility and more, as new developments are currently underway.

Watermark University

Our award-winning educational enrichment program includes special offerings for residents in Memory Care.

Circadian Lighting

This is a healthy way to illuminate community and apartment spaces. It can also improve air quality, help regulate the body’s sleep-wake cycle, enhance quality of sleep, and boost immunity, to promote overall well-being.
