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.
SAFE AND SUPPORTED
I just want to thank the entire team at Hingham for their ability to manage the relocation of all its residents due to circumstances beyond their control. They were thoughtful and thorough in prioritizing the residents, keeping them safe and supported, while also keeping families informed.
I never questioned my decision, but now more than ever I am grateful that we made the decision to place my husband at the Hingham home. Thank you to management, nursing, life enrichment, daily unit staff, kitchen and maintenance you have all stepped up and it means so much.

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?

EXCITED ABOUT RESOURCES
Sometimes I just need some validation, and I’m excited about the resources you offer since I could really use the support. I can’t thank you enough for your kindness.

Staff Is Superb
My sister went to Bridges in Hingham for a 1 month trial and is enjoying an active life 1 1/2 yrs later. I’ve never seen her happier. The atmosphere is one of caring, kindness, and love for residents and their family members. The staff is superb. They follow the terrific lead of the management team who, in addition to their individual responsibilities, each spend time with residents either overseeing a group activity or just visiting briefly throughout the day in each house. The list of activities within the daily schedule at Bridges is varied and keeps residents very busy, yet there is time to relax and enjoy some quiet time or the outside, weather permitting. In addition to a full list of daily activities and a variety of frequent entertainment programs, there are many trips beyond Bridges. Monthly family programs are held, but family members are welcomed any time, any day to join in activities when they visit. My sister has been able to continue doing for others by serving lunch once a month at a homeless shelter with a small group of residents and staff. She has showed a renewed interest in creative activities i.e. painting, knitting, gardening, baking, and making crafts. Some items made were used to decorate her room, donated or used in a residents’ fair. Like any home, there are sometimes things that need to be “fixed.” Any time there has been a question, a different point of view, or a concern, it has been handled professionally, promptly and with my sister’s best interest in the forefront from all sides. Residents are treated with love and respect while they encouraged to live the best life they can in a warm, comfortable home.
