Everything I Expected and More

I would tell others if you're looking for a place, check this one out for your loved one. I have already recommended the community to others. The staff has been helpful and responsive to the family and residents. The promises they made have come true. The food was very good during our visit with our loved one.

EXCEPTIONAL Care for My Dad

I would HIGHLY recommend The Edgewater Health & Rehabilitation Waterman Village. My Dad was there [date removed]. EVERYONE that interacted with him was Professional, Kind and Caring. anytime I called the Facility someone always answered the phone immediately. When I asked to speak to his nurse if she was busy at moment she would return my call shortly after. The nurses all ANGELS : SO kind and compassionate. [name removed] Speech Therapist SO wonderful with my Dad as well. She called me often to update me on his progress as he had difficulty eating due to hiatal hernia pain. Unfortunately, my Dad passed away at home on [date removed]. This facility knew how much my Dad wanted to get home to me and his Service Dog Jazzy. When Hospice was called in they gave my Dad his wish and he was discharged home. One week later he passed away. To end, words cannot express how OUTSTANDING this Skilled Nursing & Rehab is!

Don't Need to Look Anywhere Else!

My Mom has been at Bridgewater Assisted Living for 2 years & I wouldn't have her anywhere else! It is a beautiful facility staffed with experienced caring employees. My Mom loves her caregivers & trusts them completely. Edgewater Rehab is in the same community & she has received excellent care there also. I like that they have a staffed gatehouse for extra security. There aren't enough stars to give!

Live Your Best Life

In 88 years, I have never lived in a more friendly place. All the residents greet. you with a smile and eagerly seek friendship with you. The staff all display their love of their job and can not do too much to assist you. The food is excellent. The library has an extensive inventory which has been most welcome during the Covid pandemic. A well equipped gym has also contributed to my overall rating. Most of all the Management could not be better!!!

I can't wait till I can move in

I plan on moving into the Lakeside Grand Condos. Although I have another year or so before I can move in because the Convirius has slowed down the construction progress. This being said several of my previous neighbors did move into Waterman Village houses and they are truly happy. So far I am very impressed with everyone at Lakeside that I've talked to, all their informative zoom emails, the entire staff that really help you in every way they can with their fast responses to questions. All the amenities, activities etc. that they offer. I'm sure this maybe one of the best decisions I may ever make.

Retirement Living at its best

Relaxed stress-free living in a premier retirement community, located in the picturesque lake front town of Mount Dora. Waterman Village has beautiful tree lined streets , many amenities, quality health care options and dedicated efficient employees. We have been living here a year, and our only regret is why we didn't move here sooner.

No Regrets

After living in Waterman Village for five years now, there is no doubt in our minds that we made the right choice when we moved here. We are grateful for the leadership, especially as they have helped us get through this pandemic. We can always count on the staff to do all they can to help us "live our best life." There truly is a feeling of community -- even of family -- here at Waterman, and we appreciate each and every day in this beautiful village.

Happy campers

We have been on the waiting list for almost two years and just received our call for the exact unit we liked when we first saw it. The staff, tours, seminars and meeting current residents has been a tremendous blessing. We attended a seminar earlier this year that introduced us to the realtor and moving services available for us...which we are now using. We feel like we have been residents and cared for since we our first tour ! Kudos to all !

Loving Life at Waterman

I’m so very happy here. My husband passed away about 3 years ago and I was feeling a lot of isolation. But between my daughter and her family being right down the road and all the care here at Waterman, I made the perfect choice. I moved in the end of September and I have no regrets. The residents here are so friendly and all the staff go out of their way to do their very best. I especially like the fact that all of us are one big family.

The Right Choice!

I’ve lived in the beautiful Oaks at Waterman Village for 2 1/2 years. It may sound stupid, but there’s nothing I would change. Communication is transparent and participatory with our monthly resident meetings and the quarterly town halls. Our needs are at the forefront of all the decisions of management. The food is great, contracted with Sodexo. Activities try to keep us active, mentally and physically. Free transportation to grocery stores and doctors offices. There’s many housing options with various pricing. We feel secure and safe and important. Love it here! Couldn’t ask for more. :-)

Caring Staff

I had several friends who lived here. So, I moved to Waterman Village myself. I've been so impressed with the handling of different crises, such as hurricanes and Covid-19. The professionalism and caring staff is very apparent. They brought gifts to residents as needed.

A non-resident (or soon to-be resident) exposure to Waterman Village and all it offers

i have not lived at waterman village so am unable t comment on care services and have only read of the many actives their residents avail themselves of. more on that when i live there. - i have visited there on several occasions and taken a wonderful memory course with them and have availed myself of their medical services thru physical therapy for shoulder replacement surgery i underwent in 2019. I have had several meals provided by them and eaten twice in their fabulous private restaurant. I come from the NYC area and their food in the private restaurant matches the best that NYC has to offer. The grounds are lovely, and incorporate the best that nature in central Florida has to offer.(& note an alligator in sight) What I have experienced is their staff - FIRST RATE. The office personnel have been kind and helpful and patient. Management is top drawer. Chefs, ground maintenance, medical - terrific. I'll let you know more when I become a full time resident in August, 2020.

A very satisfied 5-year resident.

Waterman Village excels in every area. Nestled in a beautiful setting near Mount Dora, The Oaks at Waterman consists of single level homes with either a carport or garage. There are daily choices of activities, ranging from sedentary card games and Brain Gym to fully staffed water and land aerobics with dedicated and engaging leaders. Off-campus activities include transportation to local restaurants, plays, and arts and crafts festivals. Free transportation is provided to local grocery stores, shopping malls and area churches. Staff is extraordinarily helpful, friendly , and competent. A great place to live!

Over the years ....

When I found Waterman Village almost 20 years ago for my mother-in-law I knew that it would be perfect for her. Little did I realize that over the years we would come to recognize that Waterman would be perfect for my husband and me as well. We've been on the waiting list and happily anticipate our future there with the same people we have grown to love and trust. We couldn't be going to a nicer situation! I'm moving my cousin in next month too. In fact, anyone we've recommended Waterman to has followed through and become a resident.

Life at Waterman Village

Despite the dire consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic that Florida is experiencing currently, residents, nurses and staff in Waterman Village, Mount Dora, are thankfully free of any traces of the virus. This is due, I feel, to the care and guidance of our CEO, [name removed], and staff. Clear, concise instructions for the use of masks, social distancing, etc. are understood, and followed. As long as we understand and follow these rules, Waterman Village is, I believe, one of the safest places I can be at this time. And I assure my children of this daily!
