Community life

The Waterford at Colby is more than just a senior living facility; we’re a family. Residents enjoy chatting over a game of cards in our sunroom or gathering to watch a movie in our movie theater.

You can leave the cooking to us! Restaurant-style lunches and dinners are served seven days a week. We love to celebrate milestones with delicious birthday cakes, holidays with traditional favorites and soak up the summer weather with outdoor cookouts. Connecting with family, friends and neighbors over great food helps make some of the best memories.
