Best Friends Approach

At Bridgepointe at Ashgrove Woods, the Best Friends Approach to care is at the heart of 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 Ashgrove Woods a very special place.

At the heart of the Best Friends Approach is the understanding that relationships are the foundation of compassionate care. Personal relationships between caregiver and resident are essential for us to touch the lives of those we serve.

These relationships require the essential elements of friendship:

Respect - Empathy - Support - Trust - Humor

Meaningful experiences happen with the Best Friends Approach.

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.

Best Friends Approach is about love.

We’re here to help.

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. They support the strengths and abilities, encourage residents to participate in meaningful and fun activities and ultimately bring out the best in each individual.
