We Are Not Your Typical Adult Day Care Program!
We serve adults from 18 years and up and our program focuses on socialization activities that involve everyone at every age. Our program is busy, interactive and fun with daily opportunities for wildlife encounters! Services are individually designed for your loved one's overall well being and independence.
Services are provided in our handicap accessible facilities located in Farmington and Elmira, New York.
Our Farmington site offers a country setting where outdoor activities are offered and our Donhauser/Ross Wildlife Education Center is based. The Center is set in a park-like setting and offers public viewing of our animal ambassadors, native and exotic wildlife that have been raised and rescued and cared for by our staff and program members. The Center offers opportunities for the public to learn about wildlife, their habitats and wildlife conservation in a "real-world" environment. The Center enables schools and community groups to visit on-site during the warmer months and provides a sense of purpose and skill-building to our program members, while also providing a safe environment for our animal ambassadors.

We can provide respite and peace of mind to caregivers during the day knowing their loved one is being being cared for in a safe setting. Services include socialization with peers, meals/snacks, medication reminders, and assistance & supervision with activities of daily living. Transportation options are available and can be arranged.
Hours of Operation: Monday-Friday 8am-4pm; Saturdays 9am-3pm
Our program offers daily opportunities in the areas of arts & crafts, video & board games, card tournaments, cognitive exercises/brain teasers, computers, cooking/baking, gardening, recreational outings and much more. Our calendar of activities changes monthly and members choose their preferred activities.
Some of our members' favorite recreational activities include picnics, shopping, bowling, movies, museums, and community festivals, to name a few.
We take the care of those we serve very seriously. We want all caregivers to feel that their loved one is being cared for in a compassionate and safe setting.
All Bridges staff receive training as mandated by the NYS Department of Health and NYS Office For the Aging, including CPR & First Aid. Additionally, all staff are required to pass a Criminal Background Check, a NYS Registry Check and a DMV Check.
We serve individuals 18 years and up needing supervision and monitoring due to cognitive or psycho-social impairment and/or individuals who require hands on assistance or supervision in activities of daily living (mobility, transfers, toileting and/or eating). This can be due to a physical disability such as a stroke, multiple sclerosis, as well as cognitive impairments like Alzheimer's disease or other dementias.
Our staff can help walk you through the eligibility process and discuss payment options. We accept Medicaid & Managed Care reimbursements (iCircle Care, Nascentia Health and Fidelis) as well as offer a private pay option.
