Assisted Living Reviews for The Waterford at Bridle Brook

June 25, 2012

By Dio1

I am a friend or relative of a resident

I was surprised at how many activities there were for my grandmother to interact with. There was a piano bar, coffee shop, soda stand, and other activity spaces. The rooms were nicely laid out and in good condition. The location while rural was not that far from Champaign where the rest of our family lives, so visiting was quite easy. The facility appears to be new and in good condition. The staff seemed to know my grandmother by name, and were very respectful of her considering how difficult her dementia can make interacting with her. She enjoys going to the music activities that they have at the facility, and observing the small garden that is outside her window. I haven't seen her have any major complaints about the facility, except for the fact that it isn't the home she was used too. She has over time grown to accept the space, and think it is good place for her.

All of our residents come from a variety of backgrounds and have many life experiences to share with staff and new friends. The average age of our residents is 87. Every Tuesday we go on a lunch outing to a different restaurant in the Mahomet/Champaign-Urbana area. A lot of our residents enjoy playing cards - namely euchre! You can always find groups of residents in our many different common areas doing different activities. We have a group of ladies that can be found regularly walking the halls to get their steps in or utilizing our exercise bikes while watching daytime television. Bingo is also popular along with Wii Bowling. Every Friday we have a "Wine before you dine" happy hour in our front lobby where residents can enjoy an assortment of complimentary wine (non alcoholic choices are also available) as well as a stunning fruit, cheese and cracker tray. Our Soda Shoppe is also a huge hit! Open daily from 1p-3p serving up classic tunes on the juke box and a variety of ice cream.

What makes the chef or dining program at The Waterford at Bridle Brook exceptional? What kind of menu can assisted living residents expect?

Our Dietary Director has over 20 years experience in the culinary arts and it shows. Every meal is carefully prepared using fresh ingredients and are loaded with flavor. It is true what they say that people "eat with their eyes" first and our dietary department does an excellent job of plating the food - presentation is important. We serve three meals a day in a restaurant style dinning room. Our residents come in and sit wherever they want and our professional dining staff takes their drink and food orders. At each of our three meals there is a "feature" meal and if the resident decides they do not want it they can order off of the "any-time" menu. Some typical breakfast foods include French toast, biscuits and gravy, pancakes, eggs your way, sausage and bacon. Lunch examples include crab cakes with hollandaise sauce, maple glazed sweet potatoes and creamed peas. A supper example is BBQ rib patty sandwich, sweet potato fries and brown sugar baked beans.

What safety features or security measures does The Waterford at Bridle Brook offer to assisted living residents?

Our community has security cameras throughout the common areas of the building. There are handrails along all of the walls. The exterior doors require a personalized four digit pin to gain access to the building. Here at the Waterford at Bridle Brook the safety and security of our residents is a top priority.

Our residents enjoy doing puzzles, card games and dominos. Painting and other arts and crafts are popular too. Trivia is a good way to stimulate the mind. One popular trivia game is "finish the song lyric". Staff will sing the first part and residents chime in to finish!
