Serving the Greater Boston Area
Bridges® by EPOCH at Westford is built exclusively to help seniors living with early- to late-stage Alzheimer’s disease, related dementias and other types of memory impairment to enjoy a higher quality of life with dignity, respect and purpose.
Memory Care-Specific Design & Programming
Bridges® by EPOCH at Westford is comprised of small households, each assigned a compassionate team who works well together and treats the residents in their care like family. Each household is limited to fewer than 20 suites, creating a cozy environment that runs on the consistency, familiarity and trust that people with dementia need in order to thrive. This is evident in our residents’ ability and willingness to safely navigate their respective households (including secure, outdoor courtyards) with independence and confidence.
Soft paint colors and carefully selected lighting that reduce anxiety, smart fixture placement and pathway designs that reduce confusion, directional cues that guide the way to successful navigation and sense of accomplishment, camouflaged exits and high-tech safety features and sensory boosters like aromatherapy all come together to create a truly warm and welcoming environment where residents feel safe, calm…and right at home.
Customized Programming for Physical, Mental and Emotional Well-Being
EPOCH Senior Living’s highly specialized Bridges® memory care program was developed with internationally acclaimed Alzheimer’s disease and dementia care expert Joyce Simard. This person-centered approach to memory care focuses on maintaining and strengthening the abilities that remain, not dwelling on those that have been lost. This requires Bridges® teams to truly get to know each resident – their likes, dislikes, hobbies, behavioral triggers, current physical and cognitive abilities – and to receive ongoing dementia training in order to utilize the most effective blend of expert-recommended exercises and programs, interactive technologies, care techniques and assistance that will lead to happy, meaningful moments for a particular individual.
Vacation & Respite Stays Give Families a Break
Families caring for loved ones at home count on Bridges® by EPOCH at Westford to provide short-term residential memory care while they enjoy a well-deserved vacation, tend to personal matters or simply spend some guilt-free time alone.
Short-term stays are also perfect for people with dementia who are being discharged from a hospital or a rehabilitation unit, but could benefit from some extra recovery time in a supportive, nurturing environment that specializes in memory care before returning home.
Whether long- or short-term, all residents enjoy a full social calendar of activities and events designed to enrich the body, mind and soul; comfortable and inviting surroundings; delicious and nutritious meals served restaurant-style in a family atmosphere; companionship of peers; exceptional care and personal assistance at Bridges® by EPOCH at Westford.
