Bridges costs are comparable to most skilled nursing facilities
There are no upfront buy-in costs or down-payment. Residents pay a one time community fee of $4,500, which covers the costs of transition.
2018/2019 rates for private rooms are $12,000 monthly; companion rooms are $11,700 per-person, monthly. Photos of private spaces here.
Most care services are included, please see details of services included and available here, however, a monthly fee of $2,000 is added if Bridges’ clinical staff or the resident’s physician decides that, for safety reasons, the resident requires:
the use of a mechanical lift or more than one person to assist with transfers, standing or moving for daily living activities, and/or
assistance with eating meals.
Bridges also offers à la carte service options, some of which can be covered by Medicare. See details of services included and available here.
Most long-term insurance plans cover a portion or all costs, depending on your plan.
Bridges does not require residents to commit to a contract for any specific length of stay, nor do we require payment of first and last month rent in advance. We do request 30 days notice if you are making a change in your living arrangements.
We welcome comparisons with our competitors. Our staffing ratios, averaging 3 to 4 residents per caregiver by day (5 to 7.5 residents per caregiver at night) translate into tangible quality of life outcomes. At Bridges, we spend twice as much as our competitors buying fresh groceries to make home-cooked meals – since good food improves the health and happiness of our residents. Bridges also employs more full-time Registered Nurses and Practical Nurses than other assisted living facilities, even those with several times as many residents. By any measure, we think you’ll find Bridges provides excellent value.
