Bridgepointe at Village Manor implements the Best Friends™ Approach to care in everything we do. The Best Friends™ Approach is an internationally recognized model of care that is designed to create the best possible days for residents. We believe it makes Bridgepointe at Village Manor a very special place.
“If you would just lift the dementia, and look underneath, you would find an amazing person. Individuals with lots of strengths and abilities, still.”
At the heart of the Best Friends™ Approach is the understanding that relationships are the very foundation of compassionate care. Personal relationships between the caregiver and resident are essential for us to touch the lives of those served.
These relationships require the essential elements of friendship:
Respect - Empathy - Support - Trust - Humor
It’s about love.
The core of the Best Friends™ Approach is the understanding that exceptional care begins with learning, respecting and honoring a person’s life story. Our experienced staff and volunteers are extensively trained in the Best Friends™ Approach. The Best Friends™ Approach to care is completely person centered and flexible to adapt to each individual’s strengths and abilities, which allows our staff to create meaningful experiences with residents each and every day.
Meaningful experiences happen here.
A place for everyone.
Our strong emphasis on relationships creates the loving nature found in our community, bringing residents, family members, staff and volunteers together as neighbors and friends.
