TRINITY — The Watermark at Trinity, a full-service senior living community, expanded its offerings this month by opening the Town Center, a new independent living community.
Located off Duck Slough Boulevard between State Road 54 and Trinity Boulevard, The Watermark at Trinity began as an assisted living and memory care facility in 2016. Construction on the Town Center began in 2018. The $19.3 million addition adds 161,800 square feet to the property with a five-story, 117-unit independent living building.
Enhancing The Watermark at Trinity’s profile allows it to better serve a large segment of the surrounding community, Executive Director David Schupack said in a press release.
According to 2019 statistics posted on the U.S. Census Bureau website, Pasco County residents age 65 and older account for 22.6% of the population.
“The need for independent, assisted living and memory care will continue grow with the aging senior population,” Schupack said. “Florida in particular will see a marked rise in the demand for senior living, as it consistently ranks as one of the top places to retire in terms of affordability, quality of life and health care.”
The Watermark at Trinity states that it becomes one of five independent-living communities for seniors in Pasco. The new living area consists of one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments, ranging from 732 square feet to 1,425 square feet. Amenities include a pool, fitness center, salon and spa, three dining venues and access to courtyards and housekeeping services. A calendar of programs, events and outings planned by the community is designed to provide multiple social options for residents.
COVID-19 restrictions are also in place to keep future and current residents safe during the pandemic, the press release states. All residents will be tested before move-in and the community will follow “strict social distancing guidelines and adhere to state guidance regarding indoor seating at restaurants in all three dining venues.”
“The COVID-19 pandemic has created a new list of worries for seniors in our area, and our hope is that this new community will offer them a safe place to live and thrive in the current phase of their life,” Schupack said.
Private showings of The Watermark at Trinity Town Center are available upon request and all guests will be required to wear a mask and have their temperature taken before entering the building. Showings will be staggered to adhere to social distancing measures. To schedule a tour, call 727-777-5063. More information can be found online at https://trinity.watermarkcommunities.com.
