Quiet Waters is an affordable senior rental community built as a demonstration project for the Florida Department of Elder Affairs and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
Quiet Waters offers 93 one-bedroom apartments, along with a 15,000 square foot community service center on a 5-acre campus located in the rural community of Belle Glade, Florida. The apartments are fully furnished, ADA compliant, meet Florida assisted living requirements and are designed for “aging in place.”
The structure is built with solid modular concrete construction, equipped with a 750 KW emergency generator and hurricane impact resistant windows to withstand almost anything nature may have in store. If the electricity goes out in the region, Quiet Waters will still be fully operational, providing a safe and secure environment for its residents.
What makes Quiet Waters unique is its supportive service program designed to promote a healthy lifestyle and independence for seniors. All residents are offered on-site physician care and medical coordination, home health care services, physical therapy, nutritional counseling, lunch every day, discounted pharmaceutical services, and personalized case management to advocate for the resident benefits.
Amenities include an emergency call telephone system, individually controlled HVAC units, a computer center, secure courtyards, large screen television rooms and gathering spaces, roll in showers, a video surveillance and electric lock system for 24-hour security, a clothes boutique, hair salon, restaurant, and an adult day care center.
Through a partnership with the Housing Authority, residents pay only 30% of their adjusted monthly gross income for rent and services. No additional charges for utilities and the lunch is free. Housing preference is given to seniors, 62 years of age and older, that lack a fixed, regular, and adequate night-time residence.
