SEBASTIAN – Pelican Landing Assisted Living and Memory Care Community has opened in Sebastian with dozens of eager residents occupying the community within days of its opening. Watercrest Senior Living, the developer, owner and operator of the 65,000-square-foot, 89-unit senior living community, broke ground on the project last spring with Walker Construction Company after identifying a demand for desirable senior living in Sebastian.

“The community response and support has been tremendous. Sebastian, Palm Bay, and Vero Beach seniors and their families share our excitement for the opening,” says Nicole Hanna, Executive Director of Pelican Landing. “We are offering a senior living experience that delivers the highest standards of care in an environment that builds a sense of common unity and welcomes you home.”

Pelican Landing Assisted Living and Memory Care Community features 63 assisted living and 26 memory care apartments with attractive accommodations and outstanding care in a thoughtfully planned senior living community. Located in the heart of Sebastian at 13085 US Highway 1, the neighboring area offers diverse workspaces, retail and entertainment centers, residential neighborhoods, the Sebastian River Medical Center, and a charming riverfront district with unobstructed views of the intra-coastal waterway.

“We are so appreciative of the many professionals who got us here. Today, we are honored to welcome residents into the community and we couldn’t be more proud of the people we have entrusted to care for and serve seniors and their families. Their passion for what they do and their commitment to caring for others is inspiring,” says Marc Vorkapich, Principal and CEO of Watercrest Senior Living.

Watercrest Senior Living is committed to enriching the lives of seniors by creating an environment of well being through wellness programs, nutritious and savory dining, and personalized care. All Watercrest memory care associates are Certified Dementia Specialists and their comprehensive memory care program utilizes innovative lifestyle approaches including personal life silhouettes, multi-sensory enhancements, Memories in the Making, and Music and Memory programs.
