Bridges

  • Bridges is a day program providing many recreational activities, supervised group exercise and access to the the various health care and rehabilitation professionals as needed.
  • This program benefits seniors who have the potential to decondition due to chronic conditions, require maintenance after completing GCR, need more socialization or whose caregiver requires respite.
