Our Philosophy

Individualized Person-Centered Care

At Tockwotton on the Waterfront every resident is treated as an individual—each with their own unique personality, wishes, needs and desires. As staff members learn about a resident’s preferences they can encourage them to make their own
decisions about personal issues. The residential atmosphere throughout our community offers residents and staff opportunities to foster bonds and to develop close relationships with each other. Early studies show residents living in this type of setting function at higher cognitive levels, take less medication and are generally much happier.

While a new concept in nursing care, we have been practicing Individualized Person-Centered Care for a number of years. In fact, Tockwotton on the Waterfront is the first community in Rhode Island constructed from the ground up with this philosophy as its guiding principle.

Enhanced Living by Design

Through a collaboration of architects, developers, engineers and interior designers every aspect of Tockwotton on the Waterfront was carefully designed, engineered and built to successfully serve each resident at every stage of the aging process. Whether living in our Assisted Living or Memory Care residences or receiving Short term rehabilitation or skilled nursing, every detail of the building has been thoughtfully planned to function both individually and seamlessly together. Details such as color schemes, wall and floor finishes and furniture were carefully selected to serve both form and function, yet also provide a safe and comfortable residential environment.
