What is a Wellings?

The Wellings of Waterford is the first of four in the Wellings family of adult lifestyle communities. Our focus is to provide affordable, right-sized living solutions for adults 55+, in a fun and overall health and wellness.

Each Wellings community is carefully designed, built, and operates upon our six pillars:


These pillars come from the thousands of conversations we’ve had with our residents over the past 23 years.

By listening, we’ve learned so much about living in a community for adults 55+, and we’ve noticed a few common threads. First, was that many residents are paying for health care, and either did not need it or do not want to pay for services they were not using. They did, however, want optional care closeby for if they needed it in the future. Second, independent adults expressed that they wish to continue entertaining and cooking for friends and family. Many of whom still enjoyed the idea of having dinner ready for them too, so long as the food is good.

And from there the Wellings concept began to take shape.

The Wellings concept is new and unique. Many of our residents compare living at the Wellings, similar to living on a resort! We’ve introduced a connected, friends and family atmosphere, filled with fun, laughter and great memories.

Our residents enjoy the freedom and joy of living independent and maintenance-free lifestyles. So here, at the Wellings, you have the choice to live the lifestyle you choose, on your own terms. And here, the comforts of home come included in our large apartment villas.

Why Waterford?

Waterford and the greater Norfolk County have so much to offer. We couldn’t possibly pass up a chance to introduce a Wellings Community to the lovely region.

Biking For Health

Live Well at the Wellings of Waterford.

Waterford, the birthplace of the Wellings concept, is located in farmland in southwestern Ontario, where your neighbours are considered dear friends. The community is absolutely stunning, featuring stately heritage homes, friendly shops, and a long list of summer concerts. The nearby Waterford Lakes draws swimmers, boaters and friends and family looking for an afternoon picnic. Also, the nearby Waterford Deer Park makes for another fun spot for friends and family.

Waterford is also one of the many stops along the “Toast the Coast Trail”, a trail of wineries and breweries running along the Great Lakes.

There’s no better way to enjoy life than in a community surrounded by farmland growing hops, grapes, and fresh local produce!
