THE BRIDGE:
Professional Wellness for Assisted & Independent Living

Our philosophy of care is to meet the rehabilitation needs of the residents who have an injury or illness.  Assisting in the prevention of illness and injury to promote wellness by bridging the gap between Rehabilitation and Habilitation, By focusing on helping residents maintain a healthier, active way of living. With goals of fitness and injury prevention we are providing an opportunity to go beyond the basics of physical, occupational, and speech therapy for residents.

The Bridge provides an opportunity for general fitness, mental and physical exercise to promote wellness, and improved social interaction for residents of skilled, assisted, and independent living facilities. Adding to the skills and expertise of licensed therapists, qualified fitness instructors are brought in to provide the services necessary to bridge the gaps left when therapy is no longer medically necessary. This approach provides a much needed wellness and prevention service that is typically not available to many seniors.
