Alan, Husband of Bridges at Waterstone Resident

“My children spoke to me about moving my wife into a facility that would care for her 24/7, as they noticed changes that were impacting me. Reluctantly, I moved her into Waterstone assuming she would return home after one month of respite care. Fortunately, she was very happy at Waterstone. I was very much pleased as well. My wife has been at Bridges for five months. I am so grateful for Bridges and the staff. The facility is first-class; beautiful, so bright and cheerful. The number and diversity of activities on the memory care floor are amazing. The staff is very attentive and caring. The food is as good as a top restaurant. My wife, who is a very selective eater, has been very pleased. Thank you, again, for your leadership in providing the care that my wife deserves.”

“Life here at Waterstone is great. They offer a full day of activities if you choose to participate. The food is fantastic. It’s a lot simpler lifestyle with less responsibilities. Plus, they’re able to accommodate different levels of care onsite. While my wife lives in Bridges, we’re able to see each other every day- and that works very well for our family.”
