  • Love this facility!

    My wife is in the latter stages of dementia as a result of Alzheimer's Disease. When I could no longer safely care for her at home, I visited several homes in the area looking for a safe and comfortable place for her to live. I moved her in fall of 2016 and I still visit her 3 times a day. From day one, the staff welcomed her, and me. The staff make sure her needs are met. The meals are excellent. There is an abundance of fresh food, not just canned, frozen or prepared food. I make it a point to be with my wife for nearly all of her meals so I am well aware of what is served. The colleagues that teach nursing students and train CNAs must recognize the quality of care at The Bridges as they regularly bring their students to The Bridges to receive their practical training.

  • Great place to live

    This community is beautiful. I like how there are separate smaller dining areas for the people that live there. It makes it feel like home. The staff are very kind and inviting. They are always willing to help.

  • this is how family takes care of family

    My Mom experienced three distinct life stages while at The Bridges and I was able to see first hand how the amazing staff altered her Care Plan to address her changing needs as she transitioned from being able to walk and participate in activities, to becoming less mobile and cognitively deficient to eventually, end stage of life and death. As my Mom’s condition became progressively worse, the staff consistently and tirelessly worked to maintain the delicate balance of her capabilities. It would have been much easier to just let her stay in her bed and stop coming out to meals, activities, etc. but the staff wouldn’t give up on her. I have no doubt that their determination added months of quality to her life. They also collaborated very well with our Hospice care. No “turf battles” at all; my Mom’s care and well being was their priority. I also believe that the Administration is committed to running a facility that believes in continuous improvement and effective complaint resolution. Any facility that contends they don’t have complaints isn’t honest. Everyone has complaints-its what you do about them that matters. Any issues I faced with Mom’s care were handled cooperatively and swiftly. I felt as thought my concerns were respectfully addressed and I was included in resolution planning.
