Bridgemead is a residential and nursing home by the river in central Bath, caring for vulnerable older people and their families. We are a home-from-home where our residents and day club members are cherished and enabled to live fruitful lives in a loving Christian community.
'At Bridgemead there is always something going on, there are a lot of activities to engage people. People always have a chance to do new things rather than just fade away. They are given care and support to get on and do the things they really want to do. I love this place.' Lord Foster of Bath
'I shall leave the last words to Dennis, when asked how he was getting on at Bridgemead and the care he was receiving he said, "Well it's marvellous , really. Amazing, they just do everything for you!" What more is there to say.'
'You all listened sympathetically and adapted to his changed preferences whilst continuing essential nursing care, a delicate balance so well done.'

'I want to thank you for the kindly professional way you helped. In such a busy atmosphere you still took time to relate personally and this was much appreciated.'
'I just wanted to say how impressed I was with the care taken by your staff when I attended Stella’s 90th birthday lunch and to thank everyone for making it a special day.'
'Just to say a heartfelt thank you for all the care given to my Dad over the past couple of years. It was so reassuring to me, especially as I’m not local, to know he was in such good hands.'
'I want to thank you all for the care and kindness which you gave to my aunt. You all helped to make her last years comfortable, and warm and safe. She was really happy with you, and I think, relieved that she didn’t have to worry any more. Thank you all, for everything. We all know she couldn’t have been in a better place than Bridgemead.'
'I am deeply grateful to all the staff who cared for Mum so well over the last 10 years. We are grateful for every act of compassion and kindness that was shown to her.'

‘I’m really appreciating the wonderful help given me at Bridgemead, after my nasty fall a month ago. Under your care I was able to relax and feel that everything possible was being done to aid my recovery – medically and personally – and help me regain strength and self-confidence. The medical and nursing staff, the physiotherapists as well as the carers, all contributed to this – as did the high quality of food.’
‘I need to write to express enormous and heartfelt thanks for looking after my Dad so well, these past six months. The care, concern and patience you have shown have been quite exceptional. It was a huge decision to move him to you, but it proved to be absolutely the right one.’
‘Thank you for making my respite care so pleasant, your caring and kindness has helped with my recovery. I will try to come and visit very soon.’
