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.
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.
“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!
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.
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.
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.
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.”
Here at The Bridges at Edinburg, the staff is very nice and friendly. The food is very good and tasty. When I’m not feeling well, they take good care of me, but at the same time they respect my privacy when I don’t want to be bothered. It is very good to be here! It’s like home!
My favorite part about living at The Bridges is the personalities, everything feels personal around here, everyone is so wonderful. My favorite is Angie, she’s the best. I feel like she knows everyone everywhere, she brings the most fun for us, and I love it. Everyone always has time to listen.
I like living at The Bridges because the staff is very accommodating, the place is very comfortable, and there are plenty of places to be at within the facility. I also like that there are plenty of activities each day where we get to exercise, sing, and create art.
