4.8 / 5.0

My mom stayed at The Bridges for her rehab after her shoulder surgery. The therapy team was amazing and always took the time with her. She is grateful to have recovered and is back home. But, if we need to go somewhere in the future THE BRIDGES IS WHERE WE WOULD GO!!

4.3 / 5.0

The Edencrest at Siena Hills community is very clean and friendly. The staff are always eager to help make our loved ones living there very comfortable. We would most definitely recommend this community to others.

5 / 5.0

My dad is doing really good after picking this community from the list we got from A Place For Mom. He is enjoying the meals they make. He has tried some activities and he knows some people who live here. The staff has been great. I cant tell he is happy and when he calls he tells me good things.
