EPOCH of Sharon survives snowstorm through employee dedication

By Mark Nussman, Administrator, EPOCH Senior Healthcare of Sharon

I may have spent the night on a makeshift bed in our community during the recent snow storm, but despite my fatigue, I’m eager to give credit to and salute all the employees of EPOCH Senior Healthcare of Sharon for their dedication to their residents during this ordeal.

Everyone at Sharon felt very fortunate we didn’t lose power. Some places, including the Cape, dealt with high winds that knocked down their power lines; as many as 400,000 people lost electricity and had to use generators. Having electricity throughout the storm gave our staff and residents one less thing to worry about.

Wellness efforts at EPOCH Senior Living continue

The EPOCH Wellness initiative is continuing as we work our way into the warmer spring and summer months. Ten people working in the EPOCH corporate office in Waltham, Mass., have signed up to participate in the J.P.
