My Mother was in three places before she came to the Bridges. lt was only afterthat transfer that
my brother and I and my Mom were happy. We were confident in thecare and attention and
individual time she was given there. It took a great burden off of our family. She had a lovely
room and her bed was right by the window
where they provided a bird feeder for her so that
she could watch the birds she loved so much.
The communication we received via the staff
was great. We were made to feel it was a
home and we were all family.It certainly did
make her last year so much more peaceful.

Made arrangements for a 92-year-old Bridges resident to spend an afternoon at his favorite "fishing hole" two counties away.
One of our 87 year old clients was particularly fond of
Beefeaters gin, we discovered
that he was missing his evening cocktail. With permission from his doctor, he had his cocktail
(complete with 3 olives) at 5pm sharp, everyday.
One of our Bridges residents was missing her herb garden. We took a ride to a local
greenhouse and picked out her favorite herbs. We turned a small flower garden into her
special herb garden. The caregivers assisted her
in the planting of her specialfriends. She is now sharing her recipes from 50 years ago
(using her herbs, of course) with our staff and even assisting in the kitchen. Her daughter
and Son-in-law joined us for one of her
dinners. lt was a special evening.
