This is a follow-up to the review from May 8. My Mom is still in the Bridge. Her health and ahppiness continuses to improve. She is walking better, maintains a healthy weight and has made many friends. She is starting to participate in more activities, and even has a "boyfriend!" Again, if you have an elderly loved one in need of care, check out the Bridge. Tell them "Lauren sent you."

The Bridge is a wonderful place! ! Mom was able to bring her precious cat along with her. When she moved in, she weighed about 90 pounds. She started gaining weight within the first month. She is about 110lbs for the first time in years. The food selection is fabulous and they work really hard to accomodate her food allergies.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
I was looking for an Assisted Living facility with memory care for my mother who has Alzhiemer's and dementia. Every place that I looked at had the doors locked and alarmed at all times. I understand that this is needed for some A.D. patients, but not everyone with dementia wanders. My mother is one of those. She was very much against moving out of her house and I was concerned that the locked doors would really make her feel like a prisoner. I actually "stumbled upon" the Bridge; they were recommended by a nurse in my doctor's office. I did not have an appointment, but was seen by Michelle Nelson in less than 2 minutes. We talked, she gave me a brief tour and showed me some apartments. My mother was declared an incapacited adult in August 2012. I told the court appointed guardian about the Bridge and stated that I wanted my mother moved there. In September 2012, Mom moved into the Bridge.
