Bridget Burghardt is the Executive Director for Pomeroy Living Rochester Assisted. She believes in creating a family like atmosphere between the residents and the staff. Bridget says “We should treat everyone as if they are our family and as we work closely with them every day, they do become our Pomeroy Family. The same is true in working with our co-workers, if we treat everyone like family and learn to work with and grow from each other. Together our “Pomeroy Living Family” can be a great place to live and work” Bridget has been working in Skilled Nursing homes for the last 9 years. She feels lucky to have worked with Pomeroy Living for the last year and a half as the Assistant Administrator at Pomeroy Living Sterling Skilled Rehabilitation, and now the Executive Director at Pomeroy Assisted Living Rochester. She is a Certified Dietary Manager and a Licensed Nursing Home Administrator
