BridgePoint is excellent and clean. The people are compassionate about the residents, who seem very content and happy. There are lots of activities going on every day in their wellness center. The food is great.

I visited Bridge Point at Los Altos too. However, I was not impressed. The rooms looked small and a little older than the other ones I visited. They had activities inside. They had bus trips. They had television rooms, a computer area, a reading area, and an exercise room. It was just kind of an old facility. I liked the location. Maybe they could improve on their modernization.

My mother has been a resident at this facility for 3 years and is very happy & content there, has made lots of friends, and feels very loved and cared for there. The many activities keep her busy from morning till night and most of the time she doesn't go back to her apartment until Jeopardy comes on at 7pm. She participates in chair exercise classes, balloon volleyball, ice cream socials, sees the potiatrist for a pedicure once a month, gets massages, and visits with all the many friends she's made there every day. The food is fantastic, too! I've had many meals there and they have an amazing chef! Also, she likes that she can eat any time of day as they have a special menu that offers a variety of choices throughout the day, besides the dinner specials (4 offered daily). I'm so happy she's in a great place where people care for her like family & the staff are very dedicated, too, especially Mary, at the front desk, that goes out of her way to help anyone with anything, and if she can't help with something, she finds someone who can! Thank you, Bridgepoint, for being there in every way for my wonderful mom!

I visited this facility

Though the facilities are nice and the town is great, the staff seemed to be unhappy and as if they didn't want to be doing there jobs. As a granddaughter, I wanted to see people who truly loved their jobs and cared about not only the well-being that my grandparents had on a physical level, but on a spiritual level as well. It was frustrating to see people who were more interested in getting off their shift at the right time than in what the people living there really needed. Sometimes an older person just needs someone to listen and talk to them about life and I think that is just as important as medication or physical check-ups. We ended up not choosing the facility because of the people who worked there and honestly I think the staff needs to reevaluate whether or not they truly like their jobs and if not, they should get new ones and stop shoveling off their unhappiness on the people who happen to live there. I do think the facility had a great list of things to do and the other people living there really seemed like they would be amazing to talk to and learn from but the awful staff was too much to handle.

I am/was a resident of this facility

I lived at this facility for 3 years and enjoyed it very much. The staff is very friendly and easy to work with. The rooms are in excellent condition, very clean and bright. There are many rose bushes surrounding the property, that it makes taking a walk very enjoyable. I highly recommend this facility to anyone.

I visited this facility

Grew up right down the street from BridgePoint. For years I didn't even know there was an assisted living facility there. It sits in a quaint residential area, and is surrounded by trees and greenery. I've been inside the facility on several occasions. I've voted there, volunteered there, and have recently visited the facility with friends who have elderly loved ones there. I've heard great feedback about the community. One of my best friend's grandmother moved there after her husband passed. She was incredibly resistant and caused the family a great deal of heartache. Despite this, she's grown to love her life at BridgePoint. From what I understand this is an expensive community; but the family is very happy with the service they're receiving.

I am a friend or relative of a resident

My 90-year-old mom has been in this facility for a year and I visit at least weekly. We like the fact that services range from completely independent to help with medication management to various levels of assisted living, with the ability to change back and forth as needed and the level of care cost adjusted accordingly. It took a while for Mom to get oriented to the layout and available activities. The staff are friendly and encouraging and treat her very kindly. I eat lunch or dinner there about once a week and there's always a salad bar, choice of 4 entrees (one vegetarian), fresh fruit and dessert. You have the same 4 entree choices for lunch and dinner and the menus rotate through about every 5 weeks. The food is good and reasonably varied, though mom finds some of the options too spicy for her tastes. There's a luscious spread for the Sunday buffet twice a month and the dining room is decorated for all the holidays. There are wine and cheese and root beer float socials every month, too. We would recommend BridgePoint to others looking for this type of facility.
