Insider reviews & perspectives

Comfort Life Review

stories

The first thing you notice about the Kingsbridge as you drive up to it, is the elegance of the exterior. Balcony railings and curving facades give a sense of flight and grace. And when you walk in, you might indeed feel lighter, thanks to the expansive, bright interiors and the obviously happy people around.

The staff offers respect and approachability as a given, and it soon becomes apparent that there’s a closeness with each other and with people in their care. You can tell that people here love what they do. When we talked to staff, they exemplified the importance of communication and connection.
