Life at The Waterford


The Waterford is sponsored by Lifespace Communities, Inc., a not-for-profit company with experience in the senior living industry since 1976.

Today, Lifespace Communities is the sixth largest independent living provider and seventh largest senior living provider of not-for-profit retirement communities in the United States, managing a network of 12 communities in seven states. Originally formed as Life Care Retirement Communities, Inc., in 1976 in Des Moines, Iowa, we changed our name to Lifespace Communities in 2009 to better reflect the total experience of living in our communities.

Through more than 30 years of existence, we have remained true to our founding ideal: to help create exceptional, financially sound communities where people could enjoy a more rewarding and secure retirement. Our efforts have been greatly enhanced by the talent and dedication of our Board of Directors which includes professionals in management, finance, healthcare administration, insurance, accounting, marketing, construction, real estate and food service.
