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.


Thank you for doing such an outstanding job of caring for staff and residents at Bridges, and thank you for your great communication skills. I am so grateful for the continuity of staff during these difficult days.

Bridges has a great reputation in the community, with good reason.  Thank you both and I look forward to visiting again (in the building!) some day.

We received the beautiful Bridges bag yesterday, filled with so many THOUGHTFUL goodies! Thank you very much!  Such a wonderful surprise. My dad and I are actually already sitting at the kitchen counter this early morning using his gorgeous new colored pencils and floral coloring book. Just lovely! Sincere thanks again.

The last week has been so hard as a caregiver and just now the most wonderful surprise was at my door. The care package from bridges could not have been better timed. The kindness it represents moved me to tears. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

I want to commend Bridges in Mashpee, both leadership and staff, for its outstanding job protecting residents, but also communicating with families. When I have called my father’s household to check on him, a staff member shares an update and a few good stories. The activities department goes above and beyond.

Wonderful Care

My grandmother lives here and receives wonderful care. I find the staff to be friendly, caring, and attentive. Gram’s room in big enough to accommodate her needs and the communal spaces for socializing and dining are always clean. The patio and garden out back make her feel like she’s back at her own house and are beautiful. It is a huge relief to know that she is so well cared for. We appreciate the safety measures taken to ensure residents cannot get lost or leave the property on their own. We even stay for lunch from time to time and have been impressed with the quality of the food, which is much better than her previous assisted living situation.

Happier and More Content

Bridges has been a wonderful experience for my Mom and for all of us (her family). Here is our story … After a hospital stay, my Mom went to a typical nursing home (not Bridges) for rehab. She was there for about 1 month. During that time, she continued to decline. She would not eat and I thought we were going to lose her. Soon her rehab stay at that nursing home was over and we had to move her. Thankfully I had toured Bridges a month prior and reached out to them again. Before we signed her up at Bridges I was very concerned if a “memory care” could meet all of her other needs. For example, my Mom is incontinent and needs assistance with the bathroom. She needs help cleaning and dressing herself. She also uses a walker and early on she was in a wheelchair. Bridges reassured me they could take care of ALL her needs. I prayed hard that this would work and really be true. I’m am beyond blessed and happy to report that they have met all of her needs and so much more! The staff at Bridges are wonderful, patient and professional. The aids keep her personal needs taken care of with dignity. The activities staff keeps all the residents engaged. They encourage all of them to be in the common areas not alone in their rooms. They warmly welcome family and friends to visit, dine and join in on activities with their loved one. The dining staff is accommodating to the residents and their guests. Everyone seems to love their job!! My Mom is doing better now than before her hospital stay. She has gained the weight back she lost prior. She’s alert and engaged! No more wheelchair. Overall, she is much happier and more content and most importantly not afraid and depressed like she was at the other nursing home. All nursing homes should take note on how Bridges has this success. I feel blessed and very fortunate that we found this assisted living for her.
