About Us

The Aldersbridge Navigator was developed to provide comprehensive, coordinated services to enroll, screen, educate, communicate, monitor, and refer elderly Rhode Island residents to the right community and professional services at the right time. This ambitious, innovative approach is being developed at Linn Health & Rehabilitation Center of East Providence with support from its parent non-profit organization, Aldersbridge Communities.

Patient Stories

"The day that I was given the Aldersbridge Navigator contact information was the day that changed the trajectory of my mother’s care and safety. Kathy’s professionalism, knowledge, kindness and compassion was obvious from the first phone call.

My mother is thriving. She’s gaining weight, she’s happy, she told me yesterday that she wants to live there, she’s participating in activities and loves her roommate. Most importantly she’s safe! At the beginning of this letter I stated how Kathy changed my mother’s life. She also changed mine, because of her I am sleeping again and I’m not consumed with constant worry. Thank you for having a wonderful person like Kathy on your staff!"

"I truly don’t know where to begin. I am so thankful my family was referred to you. I had been trying to maneuver through all the steps that were needed to help my mom be in a safe and happy environment. After 6 months of phone calls & paperwork that was so defeating, I was truly no further than I had been when I started. Trying to “navigate” through the system was overwhelming.
 

The first time I spoke to you Kathy, you listened to me and what the needs were for me and my mom. I showed you all the paperwork and forms and calls that I had been trying to deal with on my own without avail. You met with mom, you did an evaluation and truly took the lead. You became her advocate. Without you I would still be in the same place, lost. I can’t thank you and this program enough because without you my mom truly wouldn’t be somewhere today where she’s happy, checked in on, making friends, living a life and most of all safe. You were always there to listen to our needs and navigating to get mom into a place she would be happy. Thanks to you she found a home."
