Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Does The Bridges charge a fixed fee that increases based-upon levels of care?
The Bridges offers a fixed price schedule per month. The price is based upon whether the resident lives in a Traditional or Memory Care wing. Our established monthly fee does NOT increase with a resident’s changing needs, thereby, giving families the peace of mind of budgeting their costs every month.
What is included in the monthly service fee?
A complete list of services is outlined in the “About Us” tab of this website. In summary, the monthly fee includes all activities of daily living including bathing, dressing, transferring, feeding, medication management, transportation to medical appointments, special diets for diabetics, etc. Individual medical needs and diapers are not included.
Does The Bridges accept Medicare/Medicaid?
Currently, neither Medicare nor Medicaid pay for Assisted Living in the state of Texas. The Bridges does work with families that have long-term care insurance, as well as the VA which does have means-tested programs that will pay up to $1,800 per month for veterans and their spouses.
Where is The Bridges at Mission located?
The Bridges at Mission is located right behind Mission Hospital. There is nothing between us and the hospital, except the hospital’s parking lot.
When is the Alzheimer’s Support Group?
The Bridges at Mission sponsors an Alzheimer’s Support Group the first Wednesday of every month at 2:00 pm. Attendance is free and open to the public.
Who makes the final decisions regarding whether a person can be admitted to The Bridges?
The Bridges is locally owned and managed, which allows us to make decisions on a day-to-day basis, based upon the needs of families and/or The Bridges. We do not have to ask a corporate HQ for permission to make exceptions to our policies.
