Mount Dora, Tavares, Eustis, Leesburg, Lake County Florida’s Premier, Established, Assisted Living Facility

The Bridgewater assisted living facility, located on the campus of The Oaks Retirement Community at Waterman Village, has established a reputation as the premier assisted living residence in the Mount Dora, Eustis, Tavares, Leesburg, and Sorrento Florida areas.  Three decades of solid experience, has never been bought or sold, etc., and is operated by Waterman Village, a local not-for-profit organization (no offsite ownership or management). We seldom have space available in the Bridgewater, because we give our independent living residents priority admission to the Bridgewater.  Since we haven’t had many admissions into the Bridgewater from our independent living area here on the campus of Waterman Village (which is great), we are opening up the Bridgewater to the general public on a first come first serve basis.  So, act soon if you are looking for the best overall assisted living facility experience for a family member or loved one.

A major/unique benefit of choosing an assisted living apartment at the Bridgewater, is should a Bridgewater resident require short term rehabilitation following a hospital stay, or long term nursing care, they can make a smooth and easy transition right next door to the adjacent Edgewater Health & Rehabilitation Center, located right on The Oaks Retirement Community campus.  Makes the transition for residents much easier, and family members don’t have to worry about having to find ‘another place’ for their loved one. And, the Edgewater has been consistently ranked as a Medicare Five Star Rated Nursing Center.

Bridgewater residents also have access to Waterman Village’s full-service in home care agency and physical & occupational therapy clinic, located right on site.  This is a real advantage and convenience for residents and their family members.  There’s even a CVS pharmacy and Church located right on Waterman Village’s campus. Having all these amenities and services available right on site, helps enhance the quality of life of Bridgewater residents, and makes the lives of family members much easier over the long run.


Don’t pack or move a box! We have a temporary moving incentive program.  Depending on where your loved one lives, your packing, moving, and unpacking services AND costs might be fully covered!  Ask for details!

We encourage you to compare our rates. Visitors often tell us that Bridgewater residents are not required to pay a lot of ‘extras’, like other places they’ve researched, or where other loved ones have resided. Monthly rates begin at $3,495 a month for a studio apartment suite (includes assistance or supervision with medication AND bathing assistance).

StaffingMemory Care

Many of our Bridgewater staff have been with us for many years. We also have LICENSED professional nurses scheduled 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We have a dedicated team of dining room servers for each meal served, who solely work in the Bridgewater dining room, and not out ‘on the floor’ as nursing assistants or activity staff.  Both very rare in the industry.


Before you choose an assisted living residence for your loved one, compare and experience Bridgewater’s food quality, quantity, choice, AND SERVICE. We have several Executive Chefs. You’ll be very glad that you did.

Spiritual Care

Residents love the spiritual services provided by our full-time Pastor/Rev/Chaplain Robert, and associate Chaplains Cindy and Lincoln.  It’s ‘love thy neighbor’ in action. Our chapel is beautiful and can accommodate 150 residents.

History and mission

Click here to listen to a message from Jeff, Waterman Village’s Public Relations Officer, who has worked in the senior living industry for close to FORTY YEARS! Waterman Village is a not-for-profit organization, with a 30 year history, that’s locally incorporated, managed, and operated. Our first and foremost mission, is to help our residents live their best lives possible.  Like Mount Dora, it is ‘Someplace Special’.  Come and visit the Bridgewater assisted living residence located on the campus of Waterman Village retirement community in Mount Dora, before you decide on an assisted living residence for yourself or loved one.  Meet and talk to the Directors.  If you’re like other family members, you’ll be very glad and thankful that you did.

“My parent’s first experience with living in assisted living was horrible. She would leave the table hungry because the food was so bad, mix ups with medications, no security until the police arrested a druggie for breaking in. She & I both complained to the director several times & nothing changed. After 6 months, I was told about a facility called “Bridgewater” at Waterman Village in Mount Dora. She transferred to this assisted living facility after being treated at their rehab “Edgewater” which is excellent also. This place is an answer to prayer! Every assisted living facility should be trained by the owners of this facility. The food service is like a five star restaurant, 24/7 security, the building is beautiful, I can’t say enough about how skilled & caring the staff is. Everyone, from the receptionist, the director, nurses, chaplains, activities director, home health, housekeeping are all exceptional. My Mom is so happy here & I am grateful we found Bridgewater” – Review received by Gail, resident family member

Floor plans may vary slightly. A ‘Dogwood’ style floor plan is basically two Hibiscus apartments combined (Approx. 780 square feet)

I think Waterman Village is a great place to live. It has everything on premises – a nursing facility, assisted living apartments and independent villas which are roomy and beautiful. The staff is outstanding and the residents are like family. You can be as active and social as you choose or you can be by yourself. There is even a Bistro on premises which is a charming little cozy restaurant with good food. There are activities for everyone from cards, coffee socials, happy hours, lawn bowling, a fitness center and golf ,too. Don’t wait too long to get here.
