Wellington Bay, an independent living community near the Mall at Wellington Green, is now under construction, offering seniors a great option to live life to its fullest in a maintenance-free lifestyle.
Wellington Bay Director of Sales & Marketing Wendy Paige is excited to offer this lifestyle concept to the community.
“Senior living is such a great option,” she said, adding that Liberty Senior Living, the developer and owner of Wellington Bay, offers an environment that simplifies day-to-day living for residents. “It’s such a great company, concept and senior living community. It means so much to me when children of our residents come and thank me for helping their mom or dad. They often say that many become more active again.”
Paige has been in the South Florida area for 16 years. She recently moved to Wellington from Jupiter.
“I enjoy the people and the community so much, I just bought a house in Wellington myself,” she said. “I got started in senior living by helping my parents find their retirement move, 15 years ago. I enjoyed helping them and learning about this option along the way, so I changed my career and have sold senior living ever since.”
Paige has represented all levels along the senior living spectrum: independent living, assisted living and memory care.
Married to her husband, Craig Watson, a PGA member who coaches the mens and womens golf teams at Palm Beach Atlantic University, the couple have five kids and seven grandchildren, including a set of twins. “We are a golfing family, but I am excited to learn more and get involved in the equestrian side of Wellington,” Paige said.
Nowadays, much of her time is spent in her vocation, representing her passion, Wellington Bay.
“It is the only independent living community in Wellington,” Paige said. “We will offer seniors a great option to live life to its fullest while simplifying the burden of living independently with many flexible programs.”
She looks forward to stewarding Wellington Bay from its construction into a living, breathing community of residents.
“When a resident decides to live in Wellington Bay, the entire property becomes their home, so no one has to give up anything by selling their house,” Paige said. “Seniors can choose from three distinct lifestyle choices in apartment homes, garden flats or villas, all in a no-hassle, maintenance-free lifestyle.”
Paige also noted the many different services and programs at the resort-style Wellington Bay community.
“Our whole-person wellness program promotes personal health and fitness,” she said. “We will offer a true indulgence of an on-site spa, beach-entry outdoor pool — while also having an indoor pool for those days when that might be a resident’s preference.”
The 65,000-square-foot Wellington Bay clubhouse features a bar, multiple dining options, billiards table, card rooms, a library, an art room and much more. “On our grounds, we will also have bocce ball, pickle ball, great spaces for walking and residents can even fish in our lakes,” Paige said.
A key benefit of Wellington Bay is the quality of the lifestyle.
“We want our residents to stay independent as long as possible. We take care of many items for them that have simply become more of an unwanted burden,” said Paige, giving examples with the weekly housekeeping, flexible dining program, transportation and all the requirements of home maintenance. “They are all part of the monthly rent, and our Wellington Bay concierge-style service is just a phone call away, to direct or help with any of the residents’ needs.”
As an upscale independent living community in the heart of Wellington, Wellington Bay will provide a place for seniors to move when they tire of taking care of a single-family home, without having to leave the community they love. “At Wellington Bay, they can continue to live an active lifestyle filled with a variety of social, recreational, cultural and educational possibilities every day,” Paige explained.
While Wellington Bay is new, the company behind it has a long-established and award-winning reputation in the industry.
“All of the other Liberty communities have been identified as Best Places to Work. Our South Bay campus in South Carolina has been recognized as a Charleston’s Choice, and Carolina Bay has been recognized as one of the Great Places to Live,” Paige noted.
She said that she couldn’t be more pleased about the location of the new Wellington Bay Senior Living campus. “All the businesses and people have been so friendly in Wellington, and this has to be the best chamber I have ever been involved with,” she said. “They do so much to promote local businesses, especially with this pandemic going on.”
As seniors age, Wellington Bay will be able to continue serving them.
“One of the true values of Wellington Bay will be access to on-campus multiple levels of care,” Paige said. “The Lisbet Health Center is a step-up program. As people continue aging, we will also have assisted living and memory support. One nice feature of our assisted living is we will offer two-bedroom units in addition to all the amenities, programs and services that make the lifestyle at Wellington Bay so great.”
She urged anyone interested in Wellington Bay to come aboard soon and help create this unique, new community.
“Those who move in early have the chance to help shape the community and enjoy the benefits of being a founding member,” Paige said. “We are excited to share with you our plans for Wellington Bay.”
