From the Provider
At Clare Bridge of Niagara we know that memory losses due to Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia are progressive and residents' needs are continually changing. That's why we provide balance in our residents' capabilities, personalities, and preferences to create daily routines that enhance their spirits and increase their sense of purpose. We believe the amount of satisfaction our Alzheimer's and dementia care residents receive from the tasks that fill their days goes a long way to maintaining their sense of purpose and overall satisfaction with life. An integral part of this is our promise to encourage each resident to find Daily Moments of Success. To help our residents achieve these moments, our associates receive the tools and training needed in such key areas as specialized dining and the ongoing monitoring of healthcare and behavioral needs, to name a few.
We provide Alzheimer's and dementia care residents with the lifestyle, housing, and services they need in comfortable surroundings combined with the amenities, programs, and care to help stimulate recognition, recall, and wellness in a safe environment. Through years of caring for individuals with dementia, our professional care staff has learned to create optimal surroundings and approaches to care. Familiar environments that our residents have enjoyed throughout their lives are recreated to help them feel reassured and comfortable. The Alzheimer's and dementia care programs at Clare Bridge of Niagara are built to embrace, not restrict our residents' desire to wander and to provide a sense of belonging.

I visited this facility
Clare Bridge of Niagara is a newer facility. It's very neat and people were very friendly. When we came in, a guy sat us down and we went over what we're looking for first. Then he came up with what they could offer. They gave us a tour, which was great. Everything was there but again it came down to the bottom line. It's $5,000 a month and if you want medical with that or assisted living, it's another thousand. It's $6,000 to $7,000 a month and they wanted a year upfront, you'll have to have it in a bank. It's a place where I know my mother will be treated well. You sense that when you walk in there it's a caring type of organization and people really wanted to work with the people who were there. They have schedules, functions and buses that take people shopping. They do have a plan to prevent boredom which is to me the biggest problems in these homes. I'm with a group of people who have parents who are about the age that goes to these facilities and we bring papers and compare. I've told them about this and they've gone through it and some are just starting to. Getting the information was very helpful and that's where we're at. The patients' faces there show they're happy. You could tell. These people are taken care of and they're smiling, and when you walk up to them they'd say hello to you. It's a relaxing place which is a very important thing.

My grandmother was here with her altzheimers and they took wonderful care of her. The facility was clean and everyone was extremely friendly. They made sure she got her daily exercise which she actually looked forward to, and she got her medicine on time every day. They checked on her constantly to make sure she was happy. She made some friends there and she loved the interraction during meals. The food they had was specifically for her and there were quite a few staff members who made a huge impression on her. I would highly recommend this facility to anyone with dementia or altzheimers or to a family member seeking assistance for their loved one.

My mother was a resident at Clare Bridge for approximately 18 months before her passing at the facility in late 2010. I cannot say enough wonderful things about the caring, compassionate, loving, efficient, caregivers at Clare Bridge. They not only took excellent care of our mom, but they were also caring friends who became a part of our own family. They kept us informed, communicated with the doctors and pharmacies involved in mom's care. The activities at the facility for both residents and family are beyond any I have seen at other facilities (I have three aunts living in other local facilities.) It truly became home for my mom and she flourished there in the final years of her life. I would highly recommend Clare Bridge of Niagara and Sterling House to any family searching for the best possible care for a loved one.

As a man who is getting up there in his years, I have made a good deal of friends who are forced to live in Assisted Living Facilities for reasons outside of their control, and have consequently had a lot of experience with the quality of different Assisted Living Facilities. My friend Charlie is a resident at Clare Bridge of Niagara, an Assisted Living facility in North Townawanda, and I was very pleasantly surprised to see he was very well off in such a lovely and efficient facility. It is all too common to see staff neglecting their patients, especially when it is their specific job to be treating them like they were personal friends. A polite nurse walked by as Charlie and I sat down in their delightful little lobby enjoying some complimentary coffee for visitors and joked around with Charlie; he called her by her first name. I would definitely recommend Clare Bridge of Niagara to anyone looking for an Assisted Living Facility that will take responsible and honest care of their loved one.
