What Our Families Say
We could fill several websites telling you about our supportive, purpose-built design, personalized life-enrichment programs, and exceptional care and services … but, while remarkable and unique, those are merely the ingredients we use to create the real magic of Bridges® – the magic that is shown on the faces of our residents and felt in the hearts of their families.
RESOURCE TO FAMILIES
Who doesn’t love a surprise? Thank you for your very thoughtful gift. I looked at the contents and immediately began reading chapters all over the book that I identified with. This is undoubtedly the best book on the Alzheimer’s/dementia journey that I have read. I can already tell how helpful it will be to me. Thank you again.
– Joan L., Friend of Bridges®
I just wanted to thank you for the tremendous help you gave us today. After meeting you and your associates, I am so happy I decided on your facility as I can see you really make your residents and their well-being your top priority.
Thanks also for turning our nightmare of a day into one that brought us inner peace.

ENGAGED, LOVING CARE & WONDERFUL ACTIVITIES
After researching and visiting 16 different facilities, I placed my mother at Bridges in Westford in May 2018 as it offered her the best environment, daily activities/ lifestyle, and engaged, loving care for someone with dementia. I like to visit my mother a lot (10-12 hours a week) so I know Bridges well and I am very glad that my mom is there. Everything at Bridges is available for my mom - totally unlike those small, dreary lockdown memory units in the bigger facilities. Mom loves nature and thoroughly enjoys the open door to the expansive, beautiful garden replete with 5 very sweet chickens and a coop! We love sharing a delicious lunch or dinner together on the patio. We also greatly enjoy many of the wonderful activities that are offered - the musical entertainment is fantastic! I have fun, too, and it is fun to see so many of the residents singing along with songs they’ve known so well. It’s a very upbeat, caring, and positive place. My mom often comments, "This is a nice place," or "I like this place," or "I feel safe here." My mom is happy. So, I am happy. I would give Bridges 10 stars if I could!

SAFE, CARED FOR & ENTERTAINED
My 97-year-old uncle is very happy at Bridges in Nashua which is a big relief to my cousins who are so pleased with the care he's getting there. You guys are doing a great job keeping everyone safe, cared for, and entertained during these very difficult times. Keep up the good work and thanks again.

VALUABLE INFORMATION & SUPPORT
I just wanted to take the time to tell you how much it means to me to have your continuous support while I newly navigate the testing and unknown future for my dad. The web classes that I have signed up for on Thursdays have been immensely informative and I always share with my sister what I have learned which helps ease the confusion and worry we both are experiencing. With your kindness and compassion, I feel less anxious because I know that I have valuable information that you have provided me and I also know that I can contact you at any time for a question or feedback. It is immeasurably comforting to have met you and I just wanted to thank you for always being there for me and keeping me in the loop with all of the valuable resources that Bridges offers caretakers.

ALWAYS SOMETHING TO DO
We love Bridges at Westford for the care and love the staff showers on our mother and all the residents. She takes part in all the engaging, daily activities exploring art, culture, nature, cuisine, movement, faith and lots of fun games. The gracious dining room offers her choices of healthy meals and all-day snacks and fruit. The courtyard is a big hit with paths lined in flowers and surrounded by tall pines – always offers the fresh scent of nature.
The leadership and staff have performed a Herculean feat keeping all the residents and staff safe during the onslaught of the coronavirus pandemic. My mother feels safe and pampered at Bridges. There is always something to do with the other residents or she can relax in her private bedroom and take a nap. We could not ask for more. We thank the entire staff for their excellent care!
