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.
The Right Choice
Elizabeth and I had our first visit with mom today, and we were pleased to see how happy she is, happier than she had been in her home for years. She could not stop talking about how much she enjoyed the piano and singing and mentioned how friendly everyone is. It was really quite startling, but in the most positive way! We left feeling so relieved that we had made the right choice with Bridges.
Thank you for all you do for mom and all the Bridges residents. They are very fortunate to have such dedicated caregivers.

I can’t properly express my gratitude to each of you for the care you have shown myself, my daughters, and most importantly my mother. From the moment we walk in the door or call the front desk, we are greeted with a beautiful smile, a warm welcome and familiarity.
The positive encouragement she gets from you to go to her classes, to visit the health office, to work in the garden, to get out of bed, to dance, to go to Mass, to take a shower and to eat keeps her going and in good humor (mostly).
I am fully aware how exhausting your days must be now. I am so grateful that you are able to be there, to care for so many parents and then to go home. Please extend my gratitude to your families.
We just passed the four-year anniversary of her living at Bridges this Thanksgiving. She is thriving because of each one of you.

ALWAYS THERE TO HELP US
Right from that first day and week when we didn't know a thing about how to help my Mom adjust to living in a new place with a raging pandemic going on, Justin has been there for us. No matter how trite my question, no matter what time of day, Justin was ALWAYS there to help us figure out the best plan for my Mom. Even on his days off, he was there for us. Unheard of!
Justin is a wonderfully warm, funny, caring, insightful, amazing man. He has enabled my Mom to know joy again. My Mom is so happy living at Bridges, happier than she has been since my Dad died 2 1/2 years ago. And your whole staff (every one of them) and Justin are the reason.

My daily phone call to my Mom continues to be the brightest part of my day! She is always cheerful and full of great news about what she has done the previous day and who she has done it with. What a difference we have noticed since she moved into Bridges! She went from depressed and crying ALL the time to happy and healthy. She has made friends and the aides I have met when I come for my weekly visit seem to love her.
Thank you for all you and your staff have done since July to turn my mother back into the woman I remember from before the pandemic started.

DIGNITY & RESPECT
Let me start by thanking you and the entire staff at Bridges for your caring and compassionate care of mom. I have told many, many family members and friends that we could not have found a better “home” for mom.
Your care of mom enabled my family and me to sleep better at night and, as mom would have wanted, to continue living our lives. The care mom and our aunt had received was excellent. From the maintenance staff, kitchen, aides, social programs, administrators, and nursing, we felt that you were mindful of mom’s best interests and treated her with dignity and respect. Thank you so much.
- Barbara, Daughter of Bridges® Resident
I just wanted to thank you for the tremendous help you gave us today. After meeting you and your associates, I am so happy I decided on your facility as I can see you really make your residents and their well-being your top priority.
Thanks also for turning our nightmare of a day into one that brought us inner peace.
