A vibrant community alternative to group homes.
Our vibrant community provides residential care to more than 240 adults with intellectual disabilities. Unlike a group home setting, our 200-acre campus consists of three interconnected communities where we provide varying levels of care – from semi-independent care, to assisted living, to skilled nursing and physical rehabilitation services.
The Village at Marbridge is a neighborhood of 15 cottages nestled along a tree-lined street that provides semi-independent living for developmentally disabled adults. A community center provides a place to gather for meals and special events or leisure time. The Village provides a safe, caring environment that includes vocational training, education, socialization and counseling. Many Village residents hold jobs in the Austin community.
A tree-lined boulevard greets visitors as they enter the Ranch campus, where we provide assisted living for adults who require a more structured and supervised day. Daily training and activities may include horticultural therapy, arts and crafts, sports, music, computer work, functional academics and life and social skills training. Residents enjoy a myriad of social opportunities available in Austin, with 24-hour awake staffing and care.
Skilled Nursing Care
Residents with significant medical care needs can still enjoy a full and active life. Villa residents participate in many events and activities on the Marbridge campus. Likewise, many Ranch and Village residents regularly visit the Villa campus to see friends and enjoy special events found only at the Villa. The Villa provides skilled nursing care to Marbridge residents as well as to patients from the southwest Austin area.
Medical recovery and rehabilitative care
Tucked away in a lovely pastoral setting on the Villa campus is The Bridges Skilled Nursing & Rehabilitation Center. Its serene, comfortable surroundings, homelike setting and attentive care promote recovery from surgery, stroke or other medical conditions, so patients can return home. The Bridges also maintains a fully equipped, 1,200-square-foot rehabilitation center to meet patients’ therapy needs and to promote a more efficient return to health and improved mobility.
