    Bridgeport Place offers four floor plans: two studios, a one-bedroom, and a two-bedroom. Residents can choose from a standard studio or a studio with an alcove, which offers additional space. Studio apartments feature a large living room that doubles as a sleeping area, creating an expansive, open living environment. One-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments offer more solitude thanks to their private bedrooms, but they may cost more than studio floor plans.

    • Private bathrooms with large showers

    • Expansive closet space 
    • Large windows and exceptional views 
    • Emergency call systems

    Residents are welcome to prepare meals in their kitchenettes, but most are happy to eat in Bridgeport Place’s on-site restaurant.

    Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

    Q: How do I know if Bridgeport Place is right for me? 

    Everyone’s care needs are different and they may change with age. Bridgeport Place offers a safe and soothing environment for people who need mild to moderate care, giving them a place to enjoy their retirement with the security of around-the-clock care. 

    However, the community’s services are limited to non-medical personal care. They are not licensed to provide skilled nursing care, nor may they provide ongoing medical treatments. To determine if Bridgeport Place is the right choice for senior care, interested parties can ask themselves the following questions to get a general idea of their care needs: 

    • Do they need ongoing medical attention to treat chronic illness or injury? 
    • Are they ambulatory? 
    • Do they need rehabilitation? 
    • Do they have Alzheimer’s or dementia? 
    • Do they need help with their activities of daily living?

    If a person requires continual medical attention or they are non-ambulatory, Bridgeport Place may not be a suitable alternative to skilled nursing care. Their staff is not equipped to help people with advanced medical needs and the community may not admit applicants who require ongoing health care services for the person’s safety. The community cannot admit anyone they are not sure they can care for, and this may apply to people who fall into these categories. 

    The same principle applies to people living with Alzheimer’s and dementia. Memory loss and impairments introduce unique challenges into a person’s life that may require special care. Bridgeport Place does not have a memory care community on site, nor do they offer Alzheimer’s care services. Depending on the severity of a person’s symptoms, Bridgeport Place may not be a suitable choice for people with Alzheimer’s disease. 

    To learn more about Bridgeport Place’s senior care services and admission requirements, prospective residents can use the links above to make an inquiry or tour the community. The staff can answer questions about the spectrum of their services, helping older adults and their families understand which care options may be right for them. 

    Q: Is Bridgeport Place a good choice for people with Alzheimer's or dementia? 

    Bridgeport Place offers a wide variety of assisted living services and wellness programs, but they do not offer specialized memory care services. People with memory impairments, Alzheimer's or dementia are welcome at the facility if their symptoms do not facilitate specialized Alzheimer's care, but the community may not be the most suitable option compared to a dedicated memory care community.  

    To learn more about Bridgeport Place's options for people with Alzheimer's disease, use the link above to make an inquiry. If a person living with Alzheimer's needs dedicated dementia care to preserve their wellbeing, the community's staff can recommend a nearby senior living community with a memory care program.  

    Q: Is Bridgeport Place pet-friendly?

    At Bridgeport Place, the staff believes animal companionship plays an important role in healthy aging. The community allows small, well-behaved animals to live on-site with their owners provided they fall within the community’s guidelines. Residents may have one pet at a time and the animal must be non-aggressive and non-destructive. To learn more about the community’s pet policy and requirements, prospective residents can use the link above to make an inquiry. 

    Q: How much does Bridgeport Place cost?

    Bridgeport Place charges each resident a base rental fee and adds additional fees for each additional service a person receives. The rental fee includes the cost of room and board, housekeeping, and three daily meals, and varies depending on a person’s chosen floor plan and living arrangement.
