Aging and Mental Health at Stonebridge at Montgomery

We also understand that relaxation plays a major role in your mental health. Residents Jerry and Sheila Berkelhammer said, “After we enjoy dinner, Sunday brunch, a first Friday cocktail party and feast or a holiday celebration, we can relax! The mess — dirty pots, pans and dishes is in Stonebridge’s kitchen, not ours or yours. We can’t say enough good things about Stonebridge. We are so happy we made the move!”
