Memory Support Services are offered throughout our continuum of care. The Bridge is a dedicated secure area that provides assisted living with specialized programming for those with dementia-related challenges. The Easley memory care community also presents educational programs throughout the year to families and caregivers for support and meaning to their understanding of dementia and related challenges.
The Comforts of Home
The Bridge a quaint cozy community designed specifically for those with dementia and related challenges. Residents enjoy all the comforts of home while engaged in structured activities designed to maximize independence and encourage familiar routines. A spacious living room with comfortable furniture features a wall of windows for bird watching as well as a flat screen TV and fireplace for enjoying a good movie and healthy snack.
The outdoor areas include raised flower beds and gardening tools for digging in the soil and a meandering path for walking and park benches for enjoying nature. Picnic tables under an open porch area are set up for summer cookouts, a favorite pastime and cushy lounge chairs invite resident to get outside and enjoy the fresh air.
Just like home, The Bridge has a dining room and spacious kitchen where residents gather to bake cookies, pop popcorn or participate in household activities like helping to serve a meal. You’ll find a variety of activity stations to engage residents and stimulate their mind and memory.
The building design allows for relaxation as well as fostering of new friendships and life engagement.
Dedicated Expert Companions
Our professionally trained companions are hand selected to serve in The Bridge community. They are purposely assigned the same residents each day for continuity of care. Using a person-centered approach, companions are committed to learning each resident’s unique needs and desires and using this special knowledge to ensure each resident lives life to the fullest. This engaging method of service results in forming strong emotional bonds between the resident and the companion team. Residents who benefit from person-centered care are more relaxed, calm and have a greater sense of purpose while experiencing the pleasures and enjoyment of living life more fully.
“Each resident is special and unique to us.” Karen Nichols, Executive Director at Foothills Retirement Community
