“We have a wonderful community of residents, family and staff. We all feel blessed to be part of The Bridges family,” stated Donna Steiermann, who, as executive director, opened The Bridges 10 years ago.

The Bridges opened its doors in October 2009 and has since grown its community to over 90 assisted living and memory care residents. Residents enjoy a variety of activities, wellness programs, social events and sharing meals with friends.

According to Pam Buschbacher, whose mother has resided at The Bridges for 10 years, “It is impressive to me that many of the employees who opened The Bridges are still there. As new staff members were added, I was struck by the sincere consistency in care not only for our mother but for all residents. Knowing my mom is well taken care of gives me peace of mind.”
