The Adult Day and Community Support Services program is designed to provide care and companionship for older adults and/or adults with disabilities who need assistance and supervision during the day. The program also offers much needed respite to family members and caregivers, allowing them to work, handle personal business, or relax, knowing their relative is well cared for and safe.
Bridges Adult Day and Community Support Services is a licensed alternative to more expensive assisted living settings, and offers health, therapeutic, and social services for individuals with serious medical conditions. Anyone disabled or cognitively impaired may attend one of our four locations in Skowhegan, Waterville, Belfast, or Hallowell, for an hourly fee.
At Bridges, we recognize each consumer as a unique individual. We offer person centered activities designed to honor and engage the individual in ways that are fun, stimulating, and interesting. Each consumer has different abilities and interests which are assessed when they enter the program. Each center has a wide range of learning and skill building activities that enable our participants to grow so they may maintain independence inside and outside of the program.
Bridges offers Consumers and Caregivers:
- A clean, safe environment
- Stimulating, social activities
- Self-esteem and dignity support
- A nourishing lunch and snacks
- Caregiver, family relief
- Health support
- Qualified, trained staff
The staff of Bridges Adult Day and Community Support Services are a highly skilled team of caring, motivated, and innovative people. Each of our centers is staffed with a team leader and program activity aides who are Direct Support Professionals (DSP) and Certified Residential Medication Aides (CRMA), ensuring our consumers receive the quality care and support they need. The program is managed by our program administrator and is supported by our registered nurse.
