What Makes The Bridges at Edinburg Different?

Superb Reputation for Quality of Care

The Bridges at Edinburg enjoys a superb reputation for the quality of care. Over 80% of new residents are referred to us by existing residents or their families. Check out our Google Reviews.

Air Purification System

An “IWAVE” air purification system has been installed in both of our buildings. This IWAVE system is a self-cleaning, bi-polar ionization generator for actively treating a building’s air quality by:
• Killing mold, bacteria and viruses.
• Reducing allergens, odors, smoke, static electricity and other airborne particles.
• And is the same technology used in hospitals and even the White House to clean the air constantly in order to remove particles and droplets BEFORE they can spread.

Plentiful Activities and Interaction

The Bridges at Edinburg has two activity programs, one in Memory Care and another for Traditional Care.

Clubhouse

The Bridges has built a new “Clubhouse” built specifically for resident activities. This is a 2,000 square foot building with a 70 in screen that contains over 4,000 programs specifically for seniors:
• Music and hymns
• Brain games to stimulate the mind including “How much did it cost?”
• Movies and TV shows from the 50s, 60s, and 70s
• Art
• Occupational therapy
• Training programs for staff

There is a piano and sound system for parties. Finally, this is where the residents get together to play cards, dominoes, and generally have parties.

Less Expensive than Other Assisted Living Homes

The Bridges at Edinburg costs less than other assisted living homes. We charge a FIXED fee per month, even when residents progress in their needs. Other assisted living facilities charge “a la carte,” meaning they start with a base charge, and increase their monthly fees as resident’s needs increase.

Locally Owned

Being locally owned and operated allow us to work in a more personalized way with our residents and their families, to meet their individual and financial needs.

Only one block away from Edinburg Regional Medical Center

Emergencies can be met more efficiently.


Signature Programs

Circle of Joy & Music Program

Music opens reasons to live…

Circle of Joy

This is an active music-making program that gives our residents the opportunity to express strong emotions, display individuality and flare, and engage with fellow residents.

Where no words are needed…

Visual Arts

The imagination and creativity of older adults can flourish in later life, helping them to realize unique potentials. Art experiences can supply them meaning and purpose in supportive, nonthreatening ways. Our classes are designed to work with each one of our seniors according to their skill level.

- Anna Peterson

Not being a native to the area when it came time to find our 96 year old mom a new, safe place to live, it was a bit daunting. With the help of the internet and the newspaper we decided to tour the “Bridges at Edinburg”.
We were so pleased on our first visit that we decided that Bridges is the place that we wanted our mom to be. Everyone is so caring. The whole facility is very clean, well-kept and the food is excellent. Mom is always busy and everything is well organized. We feel very comfortable with our choice and would strongly encourage anyone who needs a “new home” for a loved one to consider “The Bridges.”

- Daughters of Ida Germain

Since I arrived here, I’ve been very happy. The people I live with are very friendly and always want to help. I remember how wonderful I felt at our Easter celebration, there I was, standing at the Piñata with a stick in my hand and everybody began shouting, “Tony, Tony!” to bring it down. This motivation is what I receive daily at The Bridges. We are like a big family.

- Tony Aguirre

I remember the day that the doctors told me that my mother could no longer live by herself. When mother was released from the hospital, we took her to “The Bridges at Edinburg” and placed her in their care. At first, Margie Smith did not want to be there. She wanted to go home! It has been nine months that mom has been at her “new home” and today, she loves it. The staff is wonderful and I never have to worry if my mother is being taken care of. The food is excellent and there are always plenty of activities to participate in. I would like to take this opportunity to say THANK YOU to each and every person who helps in the care of Margie Smith. You are a blessing sent from GOD to us. May God continue to bless you is our prayer.

- Dr. Ron & Lou Ann Smith

I returned to The Bridges at Edinburg when I realized that I did need assistance, my mind changed and I knew I was at the right place. I love the staff in here and the things that I can do. I hope I can stay a long time. It´s just so perfect, it´s a little country setting, surrounded by city. Country and cozy. This is my family, this is my home.

- Beverly Bowel

“I love the friendly people and how they are interested in all of my concerns. I love winning at bingo. I have found the staff very helpful. They are not pushy meaning if I don’t want to participate in an event, they don’t make me. We have a lot of activities here at the Bridges. We are kind of like a city within a city!

- Thelma Harris

I like the respect and privacy that the staff gives me. They are always there when I need them. I love the Circle of Joy. I believe it is neat to exercise, sing and share my feelings at each session.

- Ruby Neely

First of all, The Bridges at Edinburg is on one floor, that helps. This is wonderful. We have a little garden out there, it’s nice to look at it from inside, but I can go out and get in it. I like the water fountains. People, it’s a pretty damn place for people. The people who live here, and the people who work here. It’s a great place to be. We get three great meals a day, plus the ice cream and desserts. We get church, it comes to us, and I’m so pleased. We have entertainment, like the birds. We have things that make us feel alive. The staff knows how to bring out the young parts of us. I feel safe, the family feels safe. There’s enough room here to move around, there are enough things to do. I’m quite content, it is so comfortable in here.

- Mrs. Dee

“It gives us such comfort to know Mom is safe and well taken care of at The Bridges. She loves the activities they offer. They have a way of bringing her great joy. We do not think of them as “the staff”. They are an extension of our family, and we are so grateful.”

- The Aguirre Family

My father has been a resident at The Bridges in Edinburg since March of 2019, after my mother suffered a terrible accident at their home. Unfortunately, we lost my mom on April 10. The staff at The Bridges has been wonderful to our Dad and to us. The Bridges was highly recommended to us by a close friend of the family and we are very happy knowing that our father is happy there. Assisted living comes with a price tag; but, knowing that our loved one is receiving the best of care is priceless. We recommend The Bridges.

- Manny Saenz

My mother spent the last five years of her life at the Bridges. They were happy years. The staff and management are outstanding. Mom was loved and cared for in a wonderful way. She participated in the many activities offered by the Bridges and this truly became her home in her last years. I could not be more pleased and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a home for a loved one.

- Basil Huston

After 3+ years of Mom making her home at the Bridges of Edinburg, I’d like to share some observations. First, we couldn’t possibly have found a second home for her staffed with more caring , capable people, who have very much become her extended family! Secondly, the flexibility we have in decorating/ redecorating Mom’s room in order to give her something new to look at each month, is more important to her comfort and pleasure than we ever imagined. Finally, the wide variety of activities offered to residents at the Bridges keep them socially, physically and mentally sharper!

- Bertha Cantu

So very thankful I have my husband here. I appreciate all the staff, managers, director and owners. I show up all different times and different days and am always greeted with smiles and hugs. When you walk inside it reminds me of my grandmothers kitchen. Something is always cooking and smelling great! Always clean and caring. The activity people have good games and crafts. My husband is in good hands here. They make sure he gets to all his doctors appointments. All his meds are given when he needs them. They keep track of all of it. This has been a true blessing for my husband and me.

- Sherre York

After my daddy passed away my mama was unable to stay in their home because of beginning dementia. We helped her sell her home and move to our home in Mission. She wasn’t completely happy loosing her independence and she felt she was a burden to us. She absolutely was not! She is the sweetest person in the world. But she was declining and I knew after a year at our house it was time for something better for mama. We were so fortunate to be told about The Bridges of Edinburg. Mama was moved in within a week of our visit. The change in her demeanor is remarkable. She feels this is her home now! She is kept busy doing all kinds of arts and crafts and exercises to just name a few of their activities. And not sporadically either! Everyday but Sunday! And don’t get me started on their food! My husband would love to eat every meal with mama. It’s chef made and delicious and served in style to the residents on tables decorated beautifully. All we can say to anyone about a loved one who needs a home with love and attention is look no further than The Bridges of Edinburg.

- Bob and Brenda Regan

My mother is staying there after living with us for three years. Great, caring staff, lots of activities and good food. The rooms are large and homey. The place does not have that nursing home smell, very clean.
