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.
FRIENDSHIP AND LOVE
Our family cannot thank all of you enough for the kindness and professionalism you showed our mom and us throughout the year. You helped to make her final year of life one that was filled with friendship and love despite her progressing challenges, which we will be forever grateful for.
– The Friedmans, Family of Bridges® Westwood Resident
THRIVING AT BRIDGES
My husband has been a resident at Bridges Westwood for almost one year. Our family had been taking care of him at home with multiple caretakers. We thought ok this is working; of course we had no comparison. A friend suggested we look at the Bridges, almost one year later we know we made the right decision. Yes, the facility is lovely, the food great, the staff working hard taking care of so many (especially with staffing in health care facilities so challenged). My husband is thriving at Bridges. He enjoys never-ending social activities. He is never in his apartment, always roaming around (safely) socializing with other residents and enjoying all the well planned activities and entertainment. When Valentine’s Day rolled around, I was blown away with the lovely Valentine’s lunch put together by caring staff. Observing the couples (us included) having an hour or two enjoying what still is for us was heartwarming. It’s the little things that matter when our loved ones are not at our side any longer. Well Bridges staff, you know how to make this new phase in our life almost doable!

BEST-IN-CLASS MEMORY CARE
As the owner of a senior living placement agency, I find myself recommending Bridges all the time! They offer best-in-class memory care services and such great resources to families and caregivers – from support groups to educational discussions. I’m always so impressed with the level of support they provide my clients and their caregivers. Peter and Maggie always go so far above and beyond when we visit, and Barbara, Ally and their team are always there to ensure a seamless transition. I can’t say enough about Bridges and the team there. Thank you for everything you do!

THE BEST ENVIRONMENT
I feel 100% confident in the decision to move Mom. Life is not perfect, and many challenges persist, but I am full of gratitude for the Bridges memory care model. I feel confident it is best in class, and even in this early stage, we are feeling relief knowing she is safe, cared for and in the best environment where hopefully she can lead her best life.

“AT HOME” FEELING
I wanted you to know how much I appreciate the support and encouragement you and the entire staff of Bridges memory care has provided me and my family. It has been a great comfort knowing that my mother is well taken care of during this challenging time.
Your assisted care facility provides a comforting atmosphere for your members and guests. The “at home” feeling of the open spaces and the private rooms is experienced as soon as you enter the building.
We assessed similarly high-end facilities, but we are confident that we’ve made the right selection in Bridges memory care assisted living.
– Joy and Stan S., Family of Bridges® Westwood Resident
During the past year, I have gotten to know the staff and most residents. I have learned about the added services you offer. At every turn, the staff has been supportive, caring and helpful.
After working as a nurse for 44 years, I feel fortunate in being able to recognize quality care when I see it. The staff at Bridges is unparalleled in my experience.
My sister and I appreciate all of you.
