Comfort Life Review

stories

Waterford Bria is an impressively open concept, welcoming community laid out in a way that’s distinctly inviting. The exterior exhibits standout architecture, with a cobblestone driveway and field-stone columns set off against emerald green siding. Inside, we loved the stone fireplace, but you might be impressed by other things such as the spaciousness or the hardwood interiors. The overwhelming impression we get on the main floor is its sheer expansiveness. There’s room to stretch yourself wherever you go. Throughout the community, you see that people have places to sit together in small groups, or, if they so choose, to read or relax on their own.

That generosity of space and openness is also found in the suites. These are complemented by large windows, with many balconies facing outward over the courtyard. There’s multi-faceted storage space for residents to keep things. Outside, the wonderful central courtyard includes a fountain where people gather around on a sunny day. One other standout feature is the fourth floor patio, which combines bright sunshine with peaceful quietude, a great place to relax.

Testimonials and Stories

  • What Bria Residents Say: Alice's Story

    My name is Alice Thiele; I moved into The Waterford six years this month. We lived in Tsawwassen for many may years, and my husband and I said that when it was time to move out of our home, we should move to The Waterford. And that’s said, when my husband passed away, I stayed in the house by myself for a year and came here. 

    I like living here; I feel safe here. And the activities. You can do whatever it is you want to do. If you want to come down for Social Hour, you can. Five mornings a week, we have exercise. Like I said, you can keep as busy as you want, or stay in your own place and do whatever you want.

    I highly recommend The Waterford, I do. The beauty of The Waterford, is that we can walk wherever we want to. And we go on lots of bus trips, which is just fabulous—going to places I just wouldn’t have gone on my own. 

    I highly recommend The Waterford. Or really any of the Bria establishments. I’ve looked at some of the others, and they’re very, very nice. But you know, being in Tsawwassen for many, many years, this is home to me, and now THIS is my home, right here.

General Manager's Message
Matthew Jackson

Hi, I'm Matthew Jackson, I've been the General Manager here at The Waterford since January 2020, and I've been with the Bria Communities family since 2011. 

I would love to welcome you into our home. Our staff time is second to none and will make you feel like you're part of the family. Chef Matt and his team are cooking up delicious meals in our kitchen, and you'll especially enjoy their culinary creations on special occasions. 

We have lots of fun, and our recreation team specializes in parties, events and social hours that will make you laugh, sing along, and create lots of special memories. 

We offer two types of supportive senior housing: independent living and a 24 hour licensed Care Centre. You and your family will be able to rest assured, knowing you're in an environment that gives you the freedom to be yourself, with the safety and support of a loving community. 

I hope you'll come by for a tour and discover life at The Waterford. Feel free to drop me a line any time: [email protected]
