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.
I work with the staff and residents at this facility as an outside vendor. The staff is very caring, thorough, and professional. They truly care about the well being of their residents and will go to great lengths to make sure they are meeting their needs. The facility itself is beautiful and very well maintained. I would highly recommend this place for anyone looking for an Assisted Living for their loved one.

COULD NOT BE HAPPIER
My mother-in-law has been a resident at Hingham Bridges for 1-1/2 years. The facilities, staff, and activities are wonderful. They have not had any COVID infections since the pandemic began. The residents are not in their rooms except to sleep. They spend time in their living areas socializing together, and there are large living room and kitchen/dining areas where the friends are all together. Clean, bright, sunny, and the staff are cheerful and caring. Each wing has about 16 residents, and they all have access to large sunny courtyards that are beautifully landscaped, with paved pathways for walks, and rocking chairs, tables and umbrellas for visiting and socializing. The residents can go out to the courtyard on their own during nice weather.
Each day there is a full calendar of activities, even during the pandemic. They continue to bring entertainment in--and have had several concerts and activities outdoors in the courtyards, and indoors while everyone is wearing masks and is socially distanced. They do crafts, memory activities, games, art and there is a lot of one on one time. There is also a hair salon on site, and the dentist and podiatrist visit monthly for anyone needing appointments.
My husband, my mother-in-law and I could not be happier with her care. They even somehow make her ground food medical requirement tasty as their chef really cares! We have loved bringing our dog with us while we visit, and the entire staff and residents are welcoming and happy. Lately the visits have been very safe, structured and outdoors because of the health crisis, but overall, we highly recommend Bridges in Hingham!

Adele and I drove to Hingham and had a wonderful time! On the way home, Adele said, "I didn't realize how much I needed to get out and how much better I feel.”
Alicia and the staff made us feel like we were the guests of honor of the event. Great music, Adele and I danced with everyone. The cider and donuts hit the spot and we came home with apple butter, literature, apples, coffee mugs, an apple pie, a "Go with the Flow" three-dimensional placard, and an AUTOGRAPH! Can you tell we had a wonderful time?

A POSITIVE APPROACH DURING COVID-19
During this very challenging time for all, staff, clients, and relatives – the likes of which the world has not seen for over a century – the staff has stepped up and taken a positive approach, and shifted from not just caring BUT concern first and then caring! This situation has caused a communication strain that can cause a breakdown in the system, BUT by working as a team, there are other ways to overcome this obstacle. Like a staff member seeing a client likes bacon so that person gets an extra slice. The front desk people being positive, attentive, and greeting people with a smile. Even if it is covered with a mask. Department heads having street smarts to head off certain situations. Other department heads having a keen eye on clients and seeing how they can put a smile on their faces! This all takes teamwork, and a well-oiled team does not always have to communicate verbally; they just know. And in a tough situation like we are all experiencing, this is where they shine! The unsung heroes of Hingham have and are!
Bridges, with an understandable challenge, is trying their best to prescribe a more productive medicine – better than any pharmaceutical could ever prescribe, laughter and smiles!

IN GOOD HANDS DURING COVID-19
I would like to thank the Bridges staff at Hingham from the bottom of my heart. Transitioning my mom from her quaint assisted living facility in Vermont to your Bridges memory care community was a huge transition for our entire family. From the folks at the top to the folks providing the hands-on care, our family couldn't be more impressed with all that you do! As a hospice worker, I am constantly in and out of assisted living facilities, including memory care units, so I've seen it all… or so I thought I had. I have never been anywhere that comes close to what you all do to ensure your resident's well-being, be it emotional support, safety, and overall wellbeing. Knowing that Mom is safe and in good hands during this Covid-19 pandemic is priceless!! Thank you!!
