Watercrest Senior Living Group Welcomes Leisa Cawthon as Executive Director of Watercrest Newnan Assisted Living and Memory Care

VERO BEACH, FL–Watercrest Senior Living Group proudly announces Leisa Cawthon as Executive Director of Watercrest Newnan Assisted Living and Memory Care in Newnan, GA. Watercrest Newnan is a 107-unit resort-style senior living community currently under construction and scheduled to welcome residents this July.

Cawthon entered the healthcare field more than 25 years ago in rehabilitation therapy, advancing her career through education and training to serve in nursing, geriatrics, occupational health, and pediatric neurology. Due to her strong relationship with her own grandmother, Cawthon was drawn to senior living and accepted a position as wellness director for an assisted living community in 2009.  From there, she excelled in roles as an executive director and regional leader, which encompassed training, operational management, and startup expertise.

“It’s a privilege to join the Watercrest team in passionately supporting our associates and honoring our seniors here in Georgia,” said Cawthon, executive director of Watercrest Newnan. “I strive to lead this team with integrity, humility, and compassion to positively affect those around us.”

Watercrest Newnan is a signature Watercrest product offering 75 assisted living and 32 memory care apartments with premium accommodations, resort-style amenities, and world-class care. Residents will enjoy pampering in elegant Spa W, savor private label Watercrest wines at the wine bistro, and relish the flavors of locally grown, seasonal ingredients and organic fare whether dining outdoors, bistro-style, or in the chef’s private dining room.

Watercrest Newnan is ideally situated on nine picturesque acres at 285 Summerlin Boulevard in Newnan, southwest of Atlanta. The innovative design includes a stunning promenade, pool, fireplace, signature water wall, multiple dining venues, children’s play space, and Watercrest’s uniquely designed Market Street Plaza, a highlight and crucial element of their multi-sensory memory care programming.

During construction, future residents, family members and associates are welcome to visit the sales office, located in Newnan Crossing at 1053-A Bullsboro Drive to discover the difference in care, amenities and lifestyle offered at Watercrest Newnan.

Watercrest Newnan is one of two joint venture development projects between Watercrest Senior Living Group, and equity partner, Waypoint Residential, LLC, a vertically integrated real estate investment firm specializing in rental housing. Their second project, Watercrest Fort Mill, is currently under construction in South Carolina and will welcome residents in early 2020.

A certified Great Place to Work, Watercrest Senior Living Group was founded by Vorkapich, and Joan Williams, CFO, to honor our mothers and fathers, aspiring to become a beacon for quality in senior living by surpassing standards of care, service and associate training. Watercrest specializes in the development and operations of assisted living and memory care communities and the growth of servant leaders.
