Love the security team, helping out when and where needed at the touch of a button! , the Chapel, the library, the pool, boating on Lake Dora, our gift shop. Love Mt Dora, the proximity to any shops, groceries, restaurants, arts (preformed and applied), the many Churches. Love the neighborhood atmosphere, with our 'Oaks'. Lovin' it all!... Read more

Mixed Feelings

When my loved one well enough we moved them to an entirely different company's facility. My loved one had a great stay at the assisted living facility in respite care. However, a stay at the skilled care facility was wrought with an argumentative room attendant, therapy staff that constantly questioned them about "when they were was leaving,' during session and administrators who were apologetic for their staff but offered little comfort.

Check out Waterman Village before making a decision

We are so thankful that we chose Waterman Village after visiting about 10 places. The beautiful independent living homes are so inviting, and the health care facilities are great if you ever need them. But most of all, it is independently run bu a wonderful, professional, and caring staff; from the CEO On down the line. We are family! Thank you God for bringing us here! Come visit us and see for yourself!! ????

A Great Six Years

We moved to Waterman Village over six years ago from New York State and have never regretted it for a moment. This place felt welcoming from the moment we first drove in and is just as friendly and comfortable today. This is a true "family" where residents and staff care about each other. As we look toward the future, we are confident we will be well taken care of, whether in our independent living home, assisted living, skilled nursing facility or memory care unit.

Great place to retire

Living here is like living in a small village, where you know or at least recognize everyone you meet, and they are all friendly and interesting to talk to. The homes are spacious, the staff is wonderful, helpful, and available. The buildings and grounds are well maintained. There are many activities here, including many forms of exercise, games to enjoy with others, and many social events.

Living at Waterman Village Florida

We are glad we moved to Waterman Village. Here we have a lovely apartment home with a view of a wild life preserve. We don’t have to worry about taking care of our home. Most Issues are addressed the same day they are reported. There’s plenty to do in the Village and in the small town of Mount Dora. And we are treated with great respect and kindness.

Our estimate of how we feel about Waterman Village

We have been here 4 years when we reach March 23, 2022. We looked into 15 different retirement villages and decided on Waterman Village before we learned of Lake Margaret across the street and the restaurant that will be overlooking that lake. And the path around the lake and the fact that we can go shopping and reach our banck in the shopping center nearby without crossing any streets. We are very pleased at all we have taken part orf here. The Activities are very good and wthe have enjoyed several of them and shared about our work on the Paiute Reservation with the Coffee Socuak, I, [name removed], have served on two committees that I have enjoyed a great deal.We enjoy the people we have met here and all seem to be concerned about each other. We wanted a community where there were three levels and Wateman has really the best of those levels with ahe nursing care really top leel here.

Great Decision

Having lived at Waterman Village since 2005, I think I speak from experience when I say that my late husband and I made the best decision we could possibly have made. The homes are well constructed and maintained, employees and staff are extremely helpful, and do all they can to insure “living one’s best life” is a true statement.

Recent move in

We recently moved into Waterman Village and have a good experience with the move. The staff here was great with helping to get us settled in and tell or show us about the community. The staff and people were very welcoming and helped us with what ever we asked. We were able to pick out the new paint colors and the home was clean when we moved in.

Living your best life

We have been here in WV for 4 years now and still feel it was the best decision we made. I used to think that when I retire I'll be bored and just sit around, while not here, Our weekly planner is filled out everyday, from the various wellness activities, to sports programs, bus trips, and then taking a more active role in all the various committees that provide input to management about what we wish to happen.

Overall happiness

When I moved into Waterman, the facility was pretty well organized. Over the last several months I have see so many changes some good and others not so well. I’d like to see more consistency with how this place goes in the future. We are supposed to be living our best life without the inconsistency. I appreciate many positive aspects love like the Lodge and team members. I like the activities that are available. I started to see an improvement of the landscape which was a challenge for a while. I like the daily pages that are put out for residence to stimulate their brain. There are a lot of good people here who want to take care us.
