Every new Bridges® resident receives a personalized care plan with programming designed to improve communication between the resident and caregivers, address possible behavioral issues and, most importantly, engage the resident in a joyful and meaningful life of their own design.
For example: If a resident loves animals, we invite pet “therapists” to visit with them; if someone wants to take a midnight walk, we make sure they enjoy it safely; and if, say, they made their living as a carpenter or engineer, we find appropriate building projects that interest them and allow them to utilize their skills.
