Company History and Growth

EPOCH Senior Living was formed out of a deep commitment to ensuring seniors enjoy a happy, carefree – and healthy – lifestyle.

The company was founded by senior care professional Laurence Gerber in 1997, whose goal was to redefine the senior healthcare and senior living industry. His vision was the development of a healthcare continuum that could effectively serve as many people and as many needs as possible.

EPOCH was born with the acquisition of CMI, a long-established senior care provider who shared Larry’s vision of a campus continuum concept. What started as a cluster of high-quality skilled healthcare centers in the Boston area is now a regionally focused, comprehensive senior living and healthcare company.

EPOCH previously operated communities in the Southeast and the West, but then decided it could most effectively serve seniors by offering a broader spectrum of services within a more concentrated geographic area. After the sale of its non-New England properties, EPOCH broadened its array of services, adding ancillary healthcare services to its core assisted living and skilled nursing offerings. EPOCH is now a unique, regionally focused company, providing a full spectrum of integrated health care and residential services for seniors.

Currently recognized as New England’s Provider of Choice for seniors, the EPOCH continuum now includes:

Each service EPOCH offers reflects a philosophy of embracing each individual’s physical, emotional and mental well-being. The result: a network of communities and services that help seniors thrive.

The company’s mission is being further realized as EPOCH expands its independent living offerings with new state-of-the-art campuses in New England. As EPOCH looks toward the future, it will continue to address the needs of seniors so they may enjoy a comfortable and dignified lifestyle.
