What is Assisted Living?
Assisted Living is a type of long-term care that provides personal care services, such as help with daily activities like bathing, dressing, and medication management, to people who need assistance with daily living. At Bridgewater Retirement Community, it is designed to help people live as independently as possible while still receiving the support they need.

- Feeling isolated or lonely in your current living situation
- Needing help with medication management or other medical tasks
- Feeling unsafe or unable to manage in your current living environment
