Each year The Bridge at Rockwood hosts their annual fireworks display the eve of July 4th.  Not only do residents, their families, and our stakeholders but the entire community turn out to enjoy the display.  Notice the moon in two of the photos.

Local officials met recently at The Bridge at Rockwood for an information session about the transportation needs for elder community members.  They joined the community organization Elder Watch that meets each month at the facility.  The Bridge at Rockwood is happy to host community events at our building.

Lots of fun and activities during national nursing home week including Hawaiian Day, Western Day, T-Shirt Day, 50s Day and Disney Day.  Staff partner with residents for games throughout the week as well.

We had a large crowd for our annual mother’s day brunch.  Our mothers received roses and the food was wonderful.


The Bridge at Rockwood was recently named Business of the Year at the Roane County Chamber of Commerce’s 68th annual awards banquet. Read the story from the Roane County News or Oak Ridge Today.

The Bridge at Rockwood just hosted its annual Senior Prom. It is JUST LIKE a high school prom, only with our elders. The Beta Club at Rockwood High School comes over and dances with our elders, as well as help with the refreshments and entertaining them.

This year, we had at least 50 residents attend, some with dates.

Planning the prom is a several-day project that starts with building and decorating for the theme. This year it was ‘Wish Upon a Star.’ Therapy, nursing staff and families help the residents select from formal attire that is loaned to them for the evening (if they don’t have their own). After getting dress, our ladies had their nails painted, and hair and makeup done by staff and the female high school students.

The residents have individual photos taken before enjoying food, music and dancing during the prom. They all love the prom and are still talking about it. We gave them their photos yesterday, and they are carrying them around showing them to each other – just like high school prom-goers would do!
