Assisted Living Reviews for Bridgeway of Bensenville

I visited this facility

Bridgeway of Bensenville seemed old and very complicated to get through, but it was clean and nice. It wasn't for me or my dad. The nursing staff was very friendly. I didn't like the layout of it. It was far from me.

We discovered Bridgeway when our loved one was in Bridgeway Christian Living (now Bridgeway Senior Living) undergoing rehab. My concern was always what would happen to him if something happened to me and I couldn't care for him. I had no idea that there was another building on the campus until a friend sent me information on the internet. I came over to see what was available, and after seeing a number of apartmetns that were too small, I was shown an empty 3 bedroom apartment which had been empty for 2 years (the same length of time since my loved one's accident)- it was perfect for our needs and wiht a beeautiful view. When I went to report to my loved one what I had seen, he came over and when he wheeled into the aprtment, his comment was "We'll take it!" We have loved our apartment (now almost 8 years later) and have felt "at home" at Bridgeway from the moment we set eyes on the huge beautiful fireplace and lovedly dining room setting- a very welcoming sight! When our family came to visit the irst time, our yyoung grandson opened the door and exclaimed "Grandma, it's just like your home!" Yes, it is very much our home. The friendly and hospitable atmosphere, delicious meals (not having to cook!), friendly staff, employees and residents, plus numerous activities from which to choose, make our retirement years almost perfect!

Bridgeway of Bensenville has senior living, assisted living, and independent houses. It's a whole community. The room was OK. I wouldn't call it spacious, but I wouldn't call it cramped either. The activities were good. They have all kinds of activities. They showed us the library, the kitchen, the different types of rooms that they have, the workout room, and the media room. The staff was knowledgeable and busy.

My aunt is in Bridgeway of Bensenville in a two-bedroom apartment. It's perfect. I am able to bring her living room furniture, dining table, bed, and dresser. She shares it with a roommate who has her own separate bedroom, closets and bathrooms. The only thing that they share is the common areas, living room, and the kitchenette. Everything is included: three meals a day, laundry, and cable television. The only thing I supply her with is her medicines and toiletries. They have different activities every day and a little bus that takes them around. They are all active and don't just sit in their rooms. She was as happy as she can be. She loves it.

The staff at Bridgeway of Bensenville were extremely friendly. The room size was nice, and the layout was good. The price was a little bit high, but the place is very nice. They have a common area where people can get together and play cards or socialize. They have meals that can be brought to the room. The grounds are really nice, where people can walk around outside.

My mother knew about Bridgeway, and they were very friendly there. This is a small facility, and the staff was all very nice. The rooms were nice, about the typical size, and the kitchen was not as nice I would say as the other facility we visited, but the balconies were beautiful. They have crafts, a fitness center, and a game room. They were very nice and very friendly. The prices were very good, but it’s the farthest away from me.

I am so thankful that we made an appointment to see Bridgeway of Bensenville because it was half the price of everywhere else we went and my aunt-in-law is getting a lot more at Bridgeway than most of those expensive places. The room is gorgeous. She actually has her own apartment with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a kitchen, a living room, and a dining room. I like their staff the best. They are very polite, very kind, and they watch over her if I have any problems. If I just call them up and ask that they check on her, they will walk down to her room and check on her no matter what time it was. It is a very nice facility. I had no problems with them at all and she is so happy there.

When we walked in to Bridgeway of Bensenville, we felt that that was it. They were very, very nice and friendly. The open area was very nice as well as the apartment and it's not that expensive. The people are wonderful and really make you feel at home. The food is very good. I'll recommend this place to other people.

I really like the Bridgeway because of the relaxed atmosphere from the moment I drove up to the ease of getting into the building. There is plenty of parking. I was greeted by a receptionist behind the desk at the entrance who was helpful, but also guarded, wanting to ensure the privacy of the residents. The desk was not at all institutional looking, more like a hotel desk. The lobby itself is spacious and there was music piped in. Several residents were sitting on comfortable chairs chatting with one another. It was very clean and comfortable. In the middle of the lobby was a lovely dining room. When I was there it was lunch time and sparse, but I later went into a small eatery on the first floor which I found to be very reasonable and good. It's probably the only fresh fruit salad that you would get for under $2.50. What I also liked about the building is that there is a washroom on the first floor and you can also use stairs as well as the elevator to get to the second floor. On the second floor there is a wellness center and small gym. There is also a large multipurpose activity room in which residents gather for different lectures. The apartments were very nice, clean and had all the amenities. The halls were clean and well ventilated. There were no bad smells anywhere. The only downside is that there seemed to be little diversity in terms of religion and race. The Bridgeway advertises itself as a "Christian" facility. There also is not a lot in the area nearby in terms of restaurants and stores.
