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.  In three decades, it 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). 

As the saying goes, you often get what you pay for. Since 1989, Waterman Village has operated under the mission over margin philosophy.

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. Recently, a brand new heavy duty commercial generator was purchased for the Bridgewater. There are two full service dental offices by our staffed/gated entry and a physician’s clinic nearby, making life much easier for Bridgewater residents and their family members.




Many of our Bridgewater staff have been with us for many years.

We have a visiting medical doctor, nurse practitioner, podiatrist and psychologist, so residents can easily receive these services when and if needed.



Our Bridgewater Activities Department strives to keep our residents engaged, socialized, and entertained.

A list of a few of the activity programs we offer:

  • Lunch Bunch
  • Candy Bar Bingo
  • Happy Hour
  • PAWS Pet Therapy
  • Shopping Trips-Target, Wal-Mart, Kohl’s etc.
  • Country Rides
  • Weekly Musical Entertainment

By choosing the Bridgewater, not only does your loved one get all these magnificent programs, but, you too can become part of OUR family. 


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, who have a clinic RIGHT INSIDE The Bridgewater. This makes life much easier for family members and can often lead to better therapy outcomes for our residents.

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

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 33 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.
