What Are People Saying About Us?

"For the past 2 years I have resided at The Bridges. The staff in every department is kind, caring and polite. They do their very best to accommodate every residents' needs and wants."

Zula Michaud   

"Our Mom came to The Bridges over 3 years ago. We were all nervous about placing her in an assisted living facility. Everyone at The Bridges has been wonderful. There was not a time when we would walk in and not see a smile on everyone’s face and love in their hearts. We saw the beautiful way she was treated - with kindness, compassionate care and love from all who worked there. God bless you all for what you have done for our Mom and what you do for all of your residents."

"I spent some time with mom this morning and I cannot express enough how happy I am with how she is doing! She is thriving! Eating at 100 percent!! She looks good and says she feels good. My mind is so at ease every time I leave knowing she is being looked after with so much care and compassion. Thank you."

Jill Westerlund, Daughter of Resident

Mary Johnson, Daughter of Resident   

"We are pleased with the kind care and attention my parents are receiving. The staff is all so welcoming and efficient."

Linda Brooks, Daughter of Resident   

"I am so grateful to the entire staff of The Bridges for the professional, compassionate care that my mother receives from all of them. Knowing that her needs are recognized and taken care of by these dedicated caregivers is a blessing. My mother is treated with respect and always with a kind word. People on staff always take the time to talk to me whenever I stop by the nurse’s station, front desk, office or dining room. The staff of The Bridges is outstanding."

Joanne Hurney, Daughter of Resident   

"All of this has made it obvious to us that the people working at The Bridges are not there just to earn a paycheck; they are there to enhance the quality of life of the residents by providing compassionate and attentive care 24 hours a day. The residents may be the direct beneficiaries of these efforts, but in the end we benefit as well, in the form of better sleep and fewer worries, knowing the caliber of people who are watching over our loved one."

Brian, Son of Resident   

"I wanted to take a moment to let you know how very happy I am that my mom is at Claridge House. She loves the food, the activities and the overall ambiance of Claridge House. Today, I can proudly tell others where my mom lives. And, the response from others hasn't changed – 'What a wonderful place!' I have yet to hear one negative word."

Karen Crenna, Daughter of Resident   

"I just have to tell you how pleased we are with the care Mom receives there. Other than her grief, she appears to be happy and adjusting well. Our family appreciates the kindness and respect shown to her. She is the light of our lives and deserves the best. I feel she gets that at The Bridges and we thank you and the staff there."

Lee Wheeler, Daughter of Claridge House Resident   

"There is a saying that it takes a Community to raise a child. Well, it also takes a Community to care for the elderly. Everyone needs to be involved. The Elderly are to be treasured, cared for, respected and honored. Bob and I feel we found that "Community" when we brought his parents to live at The Bridges last year. We really weren't sure what to expect, but the staff at The Bridges has been great! They are all so friendly and professional. They work tirelessly in ensuring the physical care of the residents, as well as their mental and spiritual care, all the while maintaining a smile and 'can do' attitude. Bob and I can go to sleep at night knowing our parents are safe, cared for and loved. Thank you for the peace of mind The Bridges brings to our family.”

Val and Bob Templeman, Family of Residents   

"In my professional life as a speech pathologist, I have had many experiences in senior care facilities. Your medical staff is precise and responsive. The food service staff is patient and supportive. The activities staff is creative and enthusiastic. Support staff is highly aware and kind to visitors and family in all capacities. The site maintenance staff is to be commended, as all visitors and family have given us wonderful feedback about their first impressions of Jeanne's new home. The piece, however, that has made your facility shine above others is the beautiful reception room and spaces for special events and Sunday dining. I would also like to take this opportunity to express our appreciation for all of the exceptional care you and the staff have given our mother. We now know that when we return to our home out of town, we will no longer have to worry that her needs will be met.”

Jane Currie, Daughter-In-Law of Resident   

"I want to tell you that everyone at The Bridges is extraordinary and stands head and shoulders above the rest. They are always helpful, friendly, and are just great to work with. If I still had an office, I would try my best to hire them away from you. I know that this atmosphere of professionalism and genuine care starts at the top. You have great people working for you and I know you are proud of them, as you should be.”

Walt Flora III, O.D.   

"I have a family member residing at The Bridges. Because she is much younger than most residents living there, I was worried about how she would fit in. I have found The Bridges to be a community full of energy and activities. I particularly like their wonderful music program, which I know to be so beneficial to the well-being of people of all ages. I have peace of mind knowing that my family member is well taken care of and is experiencing excellent quality of life."
