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.
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!!
