Bridges Senior Living Campus

Designed especially for seniors living in the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease or another type of dementia, our innovative Bridges program offers the right amount of support and stimulation to combat challenges that come with cognitive decline. Residents enjoy close relationships with their peers who have similar needs, as well as targeted cognitive exercise and ability-appropriate events to build self-esteem.

Adults living in the early stages of dementia are living in the “in-between.” They don’t yet need the full support of traditional memory care. At the same time, traditional assisted living might feel too overwhelming, and they may feel more anxious about keeping up with conversation or masking their forgetfulness. Bridges at Arbor means making the most of living in the “in-between,” surrounded by neighbors who truly understand and never mind periods of forgetfulness. Bridges means less anxiety, more support, fewer worries, and more connections.

Transitioning into Bridges

Couple transitioning in to Bridges senior living at Arbor

Thanks to physicians diagnosing Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia earlier than in decades past, adults are getting the chance to advocate for themselves and their wishes. Our Bridges program was created because we determined that assisted living residents with a diagnosis of dementia were not flourishing in assisted living communities. We noticed these residents were spending more time in their apartments and less time out and about in the community. Bridges is meant to be empowering and supportive, giving residents the chance to talk openly about their journey with neighbors who truly understand.
