WATERMAN VILLAGE ANNOUNCES POSITVE PRE-LIMINARY FISCAL YEAR END RESULTS (10/20/14). Even after having spent close to 1.5 million dollars in upgrades to its retirement living campus this past FY, Waterman Village Retirement Community announced a surplus of revenues over expenses, of just over one-half million dollars, continuing its mission and commitment of operating a strong-solid organization, as Lake County Florida’s only multi-level of living service provider (independent living, assisted living, and nursing/memory/rehabilitation care on one campus), that’s both not-for-profit owned, and not-for-profit managed.


Waterman Village’s Edgewater Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, received an excellent FOUR STAR rating in its annual State/Federal, Medicare/Medicaid certified, nursing facility survey. Given the large size of the Edgewater facility, 120 licensed beds, and the fact that Edgewater admits on average 50 new residents each month, this is an excellent/outstanding score.

Waterman Village has added an additional part-time personal fitness trainer, increasing their total number of life enrichment, activity and wellness staff available to independent living Manor and Villa home residents, to SIX (very unique among multi-level / continuum of living retirement communities nationwide).
