The Bridgewater at Waterman Village. The best choice for assisted living in the Mount Dora, Eustis, Tavares, Sorrento, Lake County Florida areas

COVID visiting policy


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). 

A major benefit of choosing an assisted living apartment at the Bridgewater is, should Bridgewater residents 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 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)

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.


Many of our Bridgewater staff have been with us for many years.  Our administrator Gene has many years of experience in the senior living field and is appreciated by residents and family members. Our admissions assistant Yvonne, has been with Waterman Village for just under 20 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.

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.
