The decision to enroll in a life-long residential community is a significant one. The leadership and staff at The Weston Bridges understand this and want to make the application process as user-friendly as possible. We have structured our application process to ensure each resident is the best fit for our community.
Please reach out to us if you have any questions about our application process.

- Weston Bridges will review the application and if there’s a potential fit, the applicant will be invited to an in-person meeting with their family. This is an introductory meeting where we get to know you and you get to know us. The meeting can be virtual or in-person and could include a tour of the facility.

- The fee for the trial stay is $500, which if the determination following the trial stay is acceptance to the residence, will be applied to the resident’s 4th month rent.
- In the event that an overnight trial is not required, an application fee of $400 is due at the time of first scheduled meeting. Please enter your application fee payment here.
