We put in our friend at Clare Bridge. We went out and visited with him and we were very impressed, so we decided to use it. The marketing we met with was really great. She was very helpful and we were very impressed with her. She gave us a tour. The rooms are very nice and big enough. They have a lot of activities. They seem to keep the residents busy and given things to do. We thought that was good. He's still there and they're doing a good job. We're very pleased.
Clare Bridge of Oklahoma City is an assisted living facility in the Oklahoma region that we decided to check out for our aunt. She would like to stay in the area as she transitions from her private home to a place where she can be well cared for.
We were greeted by a lovely colonial style front entrance way, which looked more like someone's residence than an assisted living facility. The interior seating area was well-lit and looked like what you may find at a bed and breakfast. It had the quaintness of a cottage, only larger in size.
The main dining room had smaller tables which we liked because it seemed like a more informal, intimate setting. There was also a casual dining area to choose from, with lovely french doors to the outside patio which made it very cheery. Another private dining area featured a book case with reading material, which made it double as a den.
The formal sitting area was like a nice, large living room with a fireplace and comfortable Queen Anne chairs. All of the communal areas had a bright and airy feel to them, which we really liked.
The staff showed us a long list of activities offered to the residents. We could see that our aunt would never be bored here. The staff seems to make every effort to allow for the residents' abilities and personal preferences. The daily routines are all tailored for each resident.
They can also handle the early Alzheimer's, which our aunt has. We are not certain about how this disease is handled, and the staff here seemed competent and experienced enough to deal with whatever happens.
They really seem like they strive to create the most familiar settings for their residents so that they can have a comforting and comfortable living environment.
We really liked the look and feel of this facility and could see how our aunt would be very happy here.
