We highly recommend The Bridge for your loved ones. Our mom called The Bridge home for 5 years. The Bridge is beautifully decorated, well-maintained with good food and activities. The staff has been caring, helpful and attentive from the time she moved in until the time she moved out. Nurses - Nikki and Lindsey managed meds and doctor visits with expertise and dedication. They always made time to communicate with doctors and family. Shirley and Lisa are excellent administrators, concerned for and responsive to the residents and their families. David is a super maintenance guy...always willing and able to fix things. All of the front desk staff get messages to the right staff members, field a zillion of our questions, and always greet us warmly. To all of the staff, thank you. We were always reassured that our mom was in the best hands.

My mother is very happy at the Bridge. She had to move to Assisted Living after her stroke and although she had to leave her home of 30+ years, it didn't take her long to feel comfortable in her new home. The staff is very friendly and helpful. They call if they have a concern about how my mother is doing and are always very responsive when I have a concern myself. I have been very happy with our choice of The Bridge at Longmont for my mother's care.

Shirley, Lisa, Sunny, Nicki, Lindsey and the rest of the staff are the best. Friendly, warm and made my mother fill at home. The care given is unmatched and my mom felt like she was just in her own home...

As with most of us, moving my parents to an assisted living facility was one of the hardest things I have ever done; however, the Bridge personnel actually made the experience enjoyable. Shirley started with answering all of our questions without making us feel like it was a sales talk and made sure that my parents (confused and hard of hearing) were part of the decision making. The fact that my father chose the Bridge over all the other facilities we visited probably says more than anything I could say here. Everyone- and I mean everyone - made sure that we were comfortable and had everything we needed. Over the two years that my parents lived there, the facility provided excellent care, going well beyond what was expected to make sure that both of my parents were happy, secure, had the medical attention they needed and were involved. They also made sure that the rest of the family was involved and informed. Another facility may have been able to provide the care my parents needed, but the Bridge provided family. When my parents passed away (a month apart) everyone was there for our family providing support and sympathy. I had always been blown away at the personal touches the staff provided so I shouldn't have been surprised as they shared our grief with us. I still stop by to see my extended "Bridge" family because they became a part of our lives, not just people doing their job. I cannot say enough about them. They were truly wonderful and I miss them.

To describe the experience I had with my dad living at The Bridge is a tough question. He moved there in 2015 and was pretty happy with the service and food. Couple months in he had to have them bring all his medicine to him through out the day. Also keep it ordered through their pharmacy. Just those two things was a nightmare. They DO NOT have any RN's in the building to monitor the medications. What they do have are CNA's in charge of distributing the medications when told to. CNA's do not know what medication they are giving to my dad or other patients. My dad asked what pills were for what and they had no idea just a cup of unknown pills. He never felt sure he was given all his medications which when I checked for myself and asked he did not receive what he was suppose to get on a daily basis. When asked why they blamed the pharmacy each time. He also started seeing the doctor that comes in twice a week because it was to hard for them to schedule him to go to his doctors apps. As for what I thought he was seeing a Doctor an MD she was not a doctor!! They want you to believe she is an MD but she is nothing but someone that comes in and answers questions and maybe if your lucky will check your vitals. Only when asked to do so. My dad had lots of questions and always had to beg the staff for the what ever she is to come see him. He paid 4,500.00 a month out of pocket to live there. His health deteriorated in a small amount of time since moving in to the Bridge. Here is a list you might want to ask before moving your loved one into this place. 1. Is there any RN's that work in the building at any time of the day? 2. If you are on the medicine program through them who is in charge of dispensing and ordering the medicine your loved one will receive. Who actually is giving the medicine to your loved one and do they know what each pill is for so when giving they can double check there is no mistake on either the medicine or maybe giving your loved one another patients medicine. 3. If you are seeing the doctor that works with them not on site is he or she a MD or just a NP or PA. 4. Who is there in the middle of the night to help your loved one if they push their button and need help. How many CNA's are working each night and how long does it take them to get to your room after pushing the emergency button. It is also important for you to keep in contact with them and arrange meetings at least twice a month to make sure your loved one is not deteriorating after being there for sometime. My dad did not last a year there! In fact because we depended on them to take care of him as said in their brochure was all misleading. None of what we expected to be a great place for him to spend the rest of his life. Its all in how you ask the questions about the care they give. Be aggressive when asking or they will tell you what they think you want to hear not what is in fact true for everyday care. My dad had Copd and was taking nebulizer treatments for this disease and as long as he had those on a regular basis which did not happen ever, in the middle of the night he started having a hard time breathing and instead of immediately giving him a nebulizer treatment which would always help him breath better. They did not call family and let us know until is was to late. A CNA was the only one in charge in the middle of the night and did not make the right decision to do what an RN would have done. Give a nebulizer treatment right away. Instead the CNA called hospice and they came and started giving him morphine every hour instead. Big Mistake in the Bridges part! Before I could get there as I lived one hour away he was not awake and was asleep from the morphine and died that morning in my arms. I miss him so, so much. He did not have to die! Please ask every single question you can before making a decision to have your loved one live there. If you decide to then monitor close of the care they are giving or Not giving in my dad's case.
