Frequently Asked Questions

What are your meal times?

Choose what’s best for you.  Our San Souci Restaurant is open from 7:00 am to 6:30 pm.  You pick when you eat, where you sit and order what you want from an extensive, ever-changing menu.


What happens if I need assistance in the middle of the night?

Each member is provided with an emergency response pendant to allow you to summon assistance if and when it is needed.  You never have to feel alone and helpless.


Can I still stay in my apartment if I just need a little help with some of my personal care – like bathing, medication set up?

Sure, there are a number of home health agencies that you can choose from to meet your personal care needs. Ask a Bridges Representative about your options.


What options are available if I am no longer able to drive?

We are at your service.  We provide unlimited, scheduled transportation utilizing our car or handicap-accessible bus at no charge.


Are parking spaces assigned?

Parking spaces are not assigned.  We offer valet service, and in the winter, we warm up your vehicle and drive it to the front door.


Are there community events planned?

Events are scheduled throughout the day and evening.  Members are always welcome to join an existing program or to start a new activity.  We have numerous events throughout the day and we are sure you will find something that interests you.  Our full-time event coordinator is open to new ideas as well.


What about laundry?

Bridges has conveniently located coin-free laundry rooms available on each floor for members to use if they need to do additional laundry outside the 2 loads every other week that are included in your monthly fee.


Do you allow pets?
