I am a past client of this provider
Barbara Bridges evaluated my mother and then coordinated in home care for her. Mom had severe dementia that caused extreme paranoia, agitation, and delusional behaviors. I was the person Mom attacked. When I found Barbara, I was at the end of my rope. She trained and supervised the in home caregivers every step of the way. Barbara's primary concern is the health and well being of the patient. At the same time she shows empathy for the family too. She educated me about the desease and what Mom was going through which enabled me to cope with the situation better. Barbara's knowlege, professionalism, and compassion are unsurpassed. I don't know what we would have done without her.

Barbara's care made all the difference in our family's life as my parents both developed dementia. She intervened in a time of crisis, coordinating with medical and legal professionals. She thoroughly assessed their complex medical, physical and social needs, tailored care care plans and supported me in difficult decision making. In addition to providing care herself, she interviewed, hired and closely supervised caregivers with the result that my parents enjoyed the best of medical care, a balance of peace and stimulation, and the knowledge they were loved and safe. My mother's anxiety disappeared; my father's agitation calmed. I have recommended Barbara's services often and due so without any hesitation. She is a life saver.

I have found Barbara Bridges to be thorough, attentive, caring. She knows well each part of the system, from home to hospital, and back. She literally wrote the/a book on caring for our elders. Her knowledge and assistance are helpful at all stages of an illness, and/or simply in assisting to care for elderly loved ones and friends. As a registered nurse myself, I have had many occasions to work with and asses the care provided by other RNs and health care professionals. Barbara holds high standards for herself, and those she hires, and she sticks to, meets, and exceeds those standards. Were I the one deciding on who to hire to assess, advise, and manage the care of an elderly loved one or friend, BJB would be my first choice. The peace of mind which comes from having the assistance of someone such as Barbara is priceless.
