Joy - The Waterford Came out on Top!

The time comes in everyone's life when we must make that decision to downsize and preferably before our children say you are going to love it here mom/dad.  The choice should be ours.

Both my mother and my sister chose The Waterford, but I wanted to make sure it was a good fit for me. I decided to check out other residences. The criteria were good food, caring staff and recreation. The Waterford came out on top.

If you’re looking for perfection, stay where you are. If you’re looking for a pleasant compromise The Waterford of Summerlea is the answer and it will go a long way to putting your family’s mind at peace.


Ed - Fun Activities!

I am comfortable and happy living at The Waterford.  I like the activities, which are varied enough to interest most people, and the food, which is well prepared and good for seniors.  One problem I have, overeating is too easy!


Sharon - Amazing Care!

Thank you so much for all of the amazing care and beautiful home feel Waterford has given our mom, Dorothy.  We will really miss the staff who are all so personable.

I can truly say that your dining room is special with it’s atmosphere and quality of food and choices. I wish my parents had moved in a few years ago to enjoy together everything The Waterford has to offer the residents!


Henry - Waterford Pioneer!

Just about eight years ago I decided to sell my family home of forty years.  My three grown children promised to find dad the best seniors home in the west end of Edmonton.

After checking out three independent living senior homes we ended up at The Waterford of Summerlea.  The welcome, tour, and fine lunch left all of us very impressed.  I had three suite size choices and could take possession soon.  Lucky me – close to the Misericordia Hospital, the best mall in Canada and several churches near by.  I am now a true Waterford pioneer!


Ethel - Welcoming Atmosphere!

I have resided at The Waterford of Summerlea for over 11 years.  It has a very welcoming atmosphere.  I moved away for a year to be closer to my family, but I moved back as this felt like home.


Jo - Feels Like Home!

From the first time we came to the Waterford,  it felt like home.  The complimentary lunch was impressive, a balanced meal and so many choices for dessert, great fruit and a variety of ice cream and yogurt.  Ramona made the move so easy.  All the staff are so warm and friendly.


Laura - Highly Recommended!

“Waterford of Summerlea was exactly what I was looking for, when it was time for my Dad to move into an independent living home. The facility came highly recommended, providing delicious meals, several recreation activities, regular weekly shopping trips, day trips, and in house social events. The staff are very friendly, helpful, kind, patient, considerate and obviously enjoy working with the elderly. Being able to secure a suitable suite without being put on a long waiting list was extremely appreciated especially in such a stressful time. In fact, once my Dad agreed to move, I moved him within the same month.  In a short period of time, my Dad became a member of the Waterford community, making friends.
