Our Mom Has Been Thriving

My family and I visited many facilities while looking for a home for our Mom. They all looked and felt like facilities. When we walked into Bridges, we knew we had found her new home. Our Mom was one the first residents to enter Bridges Andover when it opened in August of 2018. 

I cannot say enough about the staff! They are so kind and compassionate; we know our Mom is very well taken care of and happy. When we visit, the staff make us feel welcome and a part of the community. Our Mom has been thriving this past year. We received permission slips for them to take her sledding in the winter and water sliding in the summer! Mom does not stop talking about how much fun she had. We received video of that adventure and we treasure it! The activities are fabulous. Mom was not one to partake in many activities, and now she rarely misses any.

Mom has made many dear friends. It is a joy to sit and have breakfast, lunch or dinner with them and see them interact. The staff is happy to include family. Mom’s friends’ family is now like family to her, and it very reassuring to all of us ‘kids’ to know she is so compassionately cared for.
