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.
VERY HAPPY I CHOSE BRIDGES
I chose Bridges for its design. They take 60 residents and divide them into three neighborhoods, so my wife enjoys being one of twenty neighbors instead of the overwhelming 60.
What I like most is spending time visiting my wife and engaging with other residents, staff and their family members. The administration is seen on the floor most of the time, especially Edmund, the Executive Director.
I'm very happy I chose Bridges for my wife's care.

SHE LOVES EVERYONE
Bridges has been THE BEST! We had called and looked at so many places. We were so scared to place our mom somewhere, after her memory was really failing lately and we knew we needed a secure facility. After her living with me for the past several months, I knew it was time. The staff was so understanding to everything we were feeling. They answered any questions we had and made the transition so incredibly smooth! Within 1 week our mom was calling it home. She has friends and keeps so busy with the activities they plan all day! She is so happy, she tells me every day I visit how much she LOVES everyone that works there, that they are “A1” a term my mom uses when she loves someone or something! It’s such an emotional time when this decision has to be made, so I’m so grateful to know my mom is happy and well taken care of! Kirk is one of the aides that cares for my mom! He is the most caring person I could ever ask for, he goes above and beyond for all the residents! Treats them as if they were family!

HAPPIER THAN I’VE EVER SEEN HER
I moved my sister to Bridges Mashpee in March of 2021. The care and attention she receives at Bridges is just what my sister needed. My sister is happier than I've ever seen her. The staff take care in including my sister in all of the activities they provide. When an activity is not to my sisters liking or congruent with her capabilities, she is still included with the group by giving her a different activity to preform i.e. coloring instead of BINGO. When I visit my sister now, I can just be her brother instead of her caretaker. This has taken a lot of stress away from myself and my sister. I highly recommend Bridges for anyone with memory issues.
