I visited this facility

I looked at The Bridges at Mission. I like the facility. I like the fact that they work with Alzheimer's and dementia patients and it's their specialty. My mom has been diagnosed with Alzheimer's, so that was a real plus. However, I was concerned about the fact that they don't accept any insurance and it was all self-pay. Between her and us, we have to see if we could afford to pay that amount monthly. That was the only thing that we were a little hesitant about, but we liked the facility. They showed me some rooms that had just become available. They showed me the dining area and stuff. It was nice because they had little areas where they could meet with the family. They have areas like a little TV room and different places like that. So that was nice. Another thing that I didn't like is that they didn't have a nursing staff available. They have hospice nurses that come in or something like that, but we were kind of wanting a place that had nurses on staff. Also, they had no kitchen available. It was still nice, but I didn't care that they brought the food in and stuff like that. I like the layout, the rooms, and everything. I also met the secretary; she's very pleasant.

The Bridges at Mission was not what I thought it would be. It was not inviting. They showed me the area where the residents were, and it was a little dirty with towels thrown all over the place. They showed me one apartment, and there was a cockroach on the floor. The staff was very nice and helpful. I saw three residents that were watching TV, but I didn't see anything else going on at that time. They had a garden outside that looked pretty. They could make the place look a little bit more friendly so that residents are going to feel comfortable. The facility had a lot of wear and tear.

We chose The Bridges at Mission. My mom is already a resident there. They have been excellent so far. I've talked to the administrator several times and she's been very helpful. I have no qualms with them. I've visited the facility. I went and saw my mom the other day there, and she was quite happy. If my mom's happy, I'm happy. She is in the memory care unit. We don't know so much about the food because we had a two-week period where they asked us not to come and see her, but she said that they feed her very well. She did aerobics. They have painting, karaoke, and stuff. The only thing we were kind of worried about is that they did not have church service. We went and sat outside, and it was a very nice area. We wouldn't have to worry about her if she went outside by herself. You couldn't ask for a better staff. The administrator gave us her home phone number.

Everything at The Bridges at Mission is very acceptable. It's an older building, but they're adding 20 different units, so they're expanding at this point. The staff and the services are just great and my sister is very happy there. The girls are all very caring and sweet to her whenever we go and spend time there. They don't prepare the food, but they bring it there, and it looks to be very good quality. There's an activities director and there are activities every day in the morning and afternoon. They do some arts, games, there's actual lessons to help with their memory and reasoning, and guest speakers talk about different topics. The facility just needs a little updating, but I'm really pleased with it. My sister is in a group of 12, and she and maybe three or four others are on a level where they communicate well, they interact, and they're very active. The price is also very reasonable.

I visited this facility

I found The Bridges at Mission to be very comforting and homey. My mother had very advanced Alzheimer's, so they took me to the Alzheimer's unit and showed me everything that they did. They were very caring from what I saw. The place was beautiful and very clean, and I was very impressed. The staff was doing their tasks and had input during my visit. They were very caring. My mother will be staying there for the next two weekends of the month. I look forward to seeing how she does and getting input from them.

I visited this facility

I visited The Bridges at Mission. I guess I was not really pleased with it, which was why we did not move forward there. The rooms did not have showers in them. It was just one shared shower and everybody had to use it. I thought there should be a shower in the rooms. However, everybody seemed very nice there. All in all, I thought it was probably a good place for somebody that needed a lot more help.

When I could no longer care for my husband I was fortunate to find The Bridges. They provided the dignity and caring that many other facilities lack. I couldn't have asked for better care for him.

Recently, a close friend of mine, Diego, suffered a stroke which left him incapacitated. Being of an advanced age and with diminished mental capacity, his family interned him at The Bridges Alzheimer's Assisted Living at 1201 St. Claire Blvd. Mission, Texas 78572. This past weekend I went to visit Diego at the Bridges and I have to say that I was extremely impressed. When you drive up to the facility the first thing you notice are the expansive, well manicured grounds. Bougainvilleas line the sidewalk and the fact that they are in full bloom makes it seem as if you are in the Garden of Eden. Upon entering the facility, I was pleasantly surprised that I didn't get that familiar hospital smell you normally get at other nursing homes. There was a very nice floral smell throughout and there was a stately appearance. The decor was all cherry wood furniture. When I arrived at Diego's room, the first thing I notice was the large ceiling to floor window overlooking a beautiful garden. The room was also furnished with cherry wood decor and there was even a desk. I also noticed that these are private rooms complete with shower and bath. Diego's daughter was leaving but we chatted for a few moments and she explained that The Bridges was their first choice because it offers an array of recreational activities such as shuffle board, dance night, and so forth. The care is also individualized assigning one registered nurse per two patients which is unheard of at other places that I have visited. Finally, what impressed me the most is that The Bridges offers support therapy for the family members of its residents. I would recommend The Bridges to anyone who has a family member that needs to be in an assisted living facility.
