I visited this facility

Waters Edge Lodge was clean and nice. The staff was very helpful. The residents could watch TV in the living room. They had a piano and different activities. They took them out to the movie theater. The food was good.

I visited this facility

Waters Edge Lodge was very clean and well-kept, and it looked like they had lots of activities. It's a very beautiful in terms of location. The difficulty for us was my father-in-law is wheelchair-bound, so the facility would not work for him. I've since learned of other people living there who are doing very well. It's a clean, modern facility.

I like living here. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The staff knows all our names. I can walk to Safeway and CVS. Our lodge is on a lagoon. It's very beautiful and peaceful here. I can participate in many different activities. Sometimes, I don't like the food.

I visited this facility

Came in for a tour of the facility to see if it would be a match for my grandma. It was so welcoming. When we arrived, it literally smelled like chocolate chip cookies. The residents were so nice and engaging. My grandma isn't ready to move yet, but she knows Waters Edge is her first choice.

Waters Edge Lodge welcomes residents as family. All staff knows each resident and cheerfully assist them. I’ve lived at The Lodge for 2 ¼ years. I’m 93 years old and I hope to live to 100 years on this warmth and caring community.

Waters Edge Lodge is a wonderful residence for seniors who are mobile. It is close to a small shopping centre and along a beautiful waterway. The staff is exceptional and there are many activities that residents can participate in. The fees are reasonable. My father was here for 8 years and was well cared for.

We're very happy with the service at Waters Edge, and we think that they are very attentive and kind. My mom's room is small, but she has a very nice view. She likes the food, so I would say that the food is OK. They have music every day, they have various classes, and they have outside events that they organize. I like the location because it is close to my home. I talked to some other family members who had their parents there, and I got really personal feedback. I like the size: not too big, not too small.
