Value for cost
We chose The Bridge because they offered a whirlpool bath which my mother loved and she was able to get a shared room so it was more affordable. They share a bathroom but she does have her own room. They also offered her her covid shots even before we moved in which was very nice of them. The staff members here are very friendly and welcoming. They do have a large variety of food on the menu and mom loves it. I am very happy with our choice and would recommend to others.
I would suggest you look into the community if you can afford it. They all are very interactive and each one of the staff knows what everyone else is doing. The communication is very good between staff members.
The staff members have all been very friendly, and the community itself is clean, but we are having some issues with our loved ones room being kept clean. The staff does a great job keeping an eye on our loved ones medicine, she seems to be doing really well. Our loved one only eats the dinner meals and so far has not complained about them. She does not participate in the activities so we aren't sure if they are still limited or not. We do think the value for cost is pretty good.
The Bridge community has beautiful grounds, it has a very open concept and the people there were for the most part friendly. The rooms were very nice and very accommodating. We did have a couple issues with the care services, our loved ones medicine was dispensed twice in a day at times and it seemed like the nurse and the nursing staff was not as knowledgeable in some things as we had hoped for.
Our family had such a wonderful experience with the Bridge, the staff members were all super. Shortly after our loved one moved in, she had a big decline and everyone jumped in immediately to take care of her and do everything possible. The helped us put her on hospice and were with her until her last day, they just did a wonderful job. The Bridge met all of our requirements and it worked out perfectly.
We chose The Bridge at Charleston because of the convenient location as well as at the time they were the allowing facility that was allowing in person tours. After she moved in, I was also still able to go and see her. She is in a 1 bedroom apartment and it is perfect size for her. They haven't been very communicative with covid, but now they have hired a new activities director and I am getting a lot of information from her. The one issue we did have that is an ongoing problem is managing prescriptions. We chose not to use their pharmacy and we do not use their doctor, so it has been difficult. Overall I would definitely recommend to others looking in the area.
My parents really liked this place, good food, friendly staff, clean spacious rooms. After mom passed away the staff was very compassionate. They spent every day talking and listening to dad as he was greiving.
The Bridge had just hired new management/Directors by the time I contacted them at the end of October. I moved my parents into The Bridge because they were very unhappy at another assistant living place. They are much happier now. The staff are more attentive. More food choices and the food looks and tastes good. Their medications, care, house keeping etc., Are all managed much better. Family feels more at ease with The Bridge taking care of them.
My dad has been in this place less than a month and he has the battle wounds to show for it! That is a sad fact and unfortunately true. He has had his feeding tube cut, not torn but cut according to the ER doctor that fixed it. He has bruises on his arm as well as a finger nail mark that evidently gouged his tender, thin skin. We were told he did it himself, of course. They take no responsibility at this place. The next thing to happen to my dad was that a Tech told him to walk down the hall knowing that he has a broken hip as well as a fracture that has not healed correctly and therefore he can not put any weight on his leg. So when this Tech told him to walk, he tried to get up out of his wheelchair and walk and he fell and hit his head. Now he has a large goose egg bump on his forehead. The Tech claimed she turned away to pour out the water and took her eyes off him. Well, that really makes us feel better knowing that they forgot to watch my dad. Not! That angers me and scares me for his safety. He has overcome so much lately and I would hate to think that a place like this is making his quality of life worthless! That seems to be enough but no, my dad now has a bruised and puffed up hand from "hitting it on the bed rail" according to the nurse. My dad is 81 years old and has thin and fragile skin and the staff there seems to treat him any way but tender. We are asking God to help us get him out of this place and into a safe place. He deserves to be treated well and not like a punching bag!
