My Mom was only at The Bridge at Alamosa for a short time. The Staff was wonderful to us. My Mom was mad that we moved her from her home in Tucson. But, once she got settled in her new apartment she really enjoyed it. Thank you to all Staff Members for your kindness and help. Beautiful place for your loved ones. My Mom will be missed by us all.

My Mother lived at The Bridge at Alamosa for 2 years. She had advanced Alzheimer's Disease and was confined to a wheel chair. The Bridge staff did a GREAT JOB with her!! As an AD patient my Mother needed a high level of care. The wonderful Bridge staff did a superb job of caring for my Mother providing quality care with gentleness, patience, kindness and compassion. We moved my Mother here from an Assisted Living Facility in Virginia - What a great move! Mom got better care, had more room in her apartment and the rate was lower!! I highly recommend The Bridge to families looking for a caring and lovely home for their family member.

If you live in the San Luis Valley you may view this facility as a blessing because there is no other facility within a hundred miles (in Colorado, anyway) that can compare with regard to comfort and cleanliness. The fact that there is no competition, however, is probably what accounts for the real shortcomings of this place. So think carefully if this is the best place for you, or for a family member. It is certainly the most expensive facility in the area--but its prices compare favorably with similar facilities in metropolitan areas (which Alamosa is most definitely not). The core expense is high, and the various add-ons, which are not always professionally administered, are also high. My mother lives here. I have two beefs, one small and particular, one large and general. The small one first. The diet is inexcusably substandard. The amount of sugar and highly processed foods that are shoveled down the throats of seniors here is appalling. The place must buy Cool Whip by the ton, judging by the number of revolting desserts it appears in. No one, and certainly not elderly people, should consume the amount of sugar and processed fats and carbs that are dished out in this place. You only have to observe the obesity of the people who cook and serve to see that there is a problem. My larger complaint is about overall management. In less than two years I have seen phenomenal staff turnover. Many excellent people have left, many less competent have stayed. It is so important for seniors to have some continuity in their care and they don't get it here, because the place is a revolving door for staff. I expect that the owners (who must surely make a vulgar profit from the place) pay very little for the hands-on care jobs, since these are usually done by young women who don't stick around long. Alamosa is a poor town to begin with, and it has an inferior labor force. Anyone with anything on the ball will get out of Dodge. This leaves only the dregs to pick the sorts of jobs that are available here. If the Bridge wanted to be a first-rate facility (and it could be one), it needs to invest in its own people: train them better, pay them better, and give them a reason to take pride in their jobs and keep working there.

My mother lived at The Bridge at Alamosa for 2 years. The staff was very caring and had a heartfelt interest in her well-being. The facility was very clean and the decor was exceptional. My Mother got great pleasure in The Bridge's personalized services provided, that included exercise classes, music classes, and the beauty shop. My wife and I visited from Virginia many times and enjoyed staying at the Bridge. We were able to participate in many of the wonderful activities they provided, such as watching movies, family social night, and exercise class. The beautiful spa and pool are quite impressive as well. We enjoyed going to the dining room with my mother. The meals were well-balanced and tasty. The staff was excellent. I was grateful that my mother lived at the Bridge and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for independent or assisted living. Donn Descoteau

My father was a long time resident of Alamosa and was a resident of the facility since it first opened. The facility is absolutely beautiful and very fitting for the setting. It is more like a upscale high mountain lodge. The staff is efficient and professional and treats the residents like family. I will always be grateful to them for all that they have done for my father and my family. I would never hesitate to recommend The Bridge!
