Assisted living for the Mount Dora, Tavares, Eustis, Sorrento, Umatilla, Leesburg Florida and surrounding areas


(PLEASE NOTE: Even though the senior living facilities at Waterman Village are rated among the highest in the nation, some senior living placement agencies will NOT refer you to us. It’s because we don’t have referral contracts with them.  Many of them will only refer senior living providers to you that they have referral contracts with, so they can receive a large referral fee from the provider when your loved one moves in. Therefore, you don’t often get the names of the best senior living providers, when you solely use a senior living referral placement agency. If you plan to use the services of a referral agency, you’ll still want to contact Waterman Village directly)

The Bridgewater assisted living residence, located on the campus of Waterman Village, has established itself 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, and is operated by Waterman Village, a local not-for-profit organization (no off-site corporate ownership or management). 

A major benefit of choosing an assisted living apartment at the Bridgewater is, should a Bridgewater resident require short term rehabilitation (nursing home care) following a hospital stay or long term nursing home care, they can make a smooth and easy transition right next door to the adjacent Edgewater Health & Rehabilitation Center. This makes the transition for Bridgewater residents much smoother and easier, and family members don’t have to worry about having to find ‘another place’ for their loved one.  The Edgewater has been consistently ranked as a Medicare Five Star Rated Nursing Center (longest in Lake County Florida)



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 $3,700 a month for a studio apartment suite.

Just outside the Bridgewater assisted living facility, you’ll find spacious grounds with shaded walking trails close by where you can take your family member or friend out for a nice stroll. The Bridgewater’s interior and exterior were recently renovated.  The Bridgewater has only two stories, which is very important for life-safety code and evacuation operations if ever necessary or required. A brand new heavy duty commercial generator was purchased for the Bridgewater last year. There’s also two full service dental offices by our staffed/gated entry and a physicians clinic nearby, making life much easier for Bridgewater residents and their family members.

Staffing and health care

Many of our Bridgewater staff have been with us for many years.  We have a visiting nurse practitioner, visiting podiatrist, and a visiting psychologist, so residents can easily receive these services when and if needed.

Memory Care

Before you choose an assisted living residence for your loved one, compare and experience Bridgewater’s food quality, quantity, choice, and service. For top notch/timely dining services, we have a dedicated team of dining room servers for each meal served, who work solely in the Bridgewater dining room, and not out ‘on the floor’ as nursing assistants or activity staff.  Quite rare in the industry.

Outpatient Therapy

It’s not uncommon that your loved one will need physical, occupational, or speech therapy at some point during their stay at the Bridgewater assisted living facility. The great news is, Bridgewater residents can utilize our extensive group of ‘on-site’ therapy professionals, through the Waterman Village Outpatient Therapy Clinic!  This makes life much easier for family members, and can often lead to better therapy outcomes for patients.

Home Health Care

Bridgewater residents also have easy access to Waterman Village’s full-service in-home health care agency, that is ideally located right on the campus.  There are many advantages of using Waterman Village Home Care, should your loved one desire private duty in home care as well.  One being, since Waterman Village Home Care is located on the same campus, they’ll already be familiar with your loved one’s current plan of care, which often leads to better health care outcomes as well.

Gated and staffed front entry, 24/7 Guardhouse

A must for a senior living residence. Offers you as a family member, and our residents, more security and peace of mind, knowing that those who enter the Waterman Village campus are stopped before entering. Considered by many senior living experts to be an essential requirement and service for today’s senior living community.


Transportation to/from local medical appointments is included at no extra charge on certain days and times during the week.

Spiritual Wellness

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

History and mission 

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 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.
