EPOCH Senior Living was founded in 1997 by the late senior living professional Laurence Gerber, who had a vision of redefining the senior healthcare and assisted living industry in the New England area. With the acquisition of a long-established senior care provider in the area, his vision of a campus continuum came to fruition.

Under Larry’s guidance and expertise, EPOCH Senior Living experienced significant growth and transformed into a regionally focused, comprehensive senior living organization. Today, EPOCH Senior Living is recognized as the residence of choice for seniors and families in the markets we serve – whether the need is independent living, assisted living or memory care.


Known for delivering outstanding senior living experiences, EPOCH Senior Living currently operates 11 Bridges® by EPOCH memory care assisted living communities and five premier Waterstone Senior Living communities throughout the Northeast.

Every service offered by our network of senior living communities reflects our philosophy of delivering a holistic approach to wellness – in body, mind and spirit. We’re committed to providing everything our residents need to lead happy, carefree and healthy lifestyles – no matter where they reside with us. Additionally, we’re proud to be an inclusive and welcoming environment for seniors who need our services.

EPOCH communities redefine what senior living should look like – from stunning apartments and impressive amenities to lively programming and unmatched services.


Bridges has been THE BEST! Mom has friends and keeps so busy with the activities they plan all day! She is so happy. She tells me every day I visit how much she LOVES everyone that works there, that they are “A1″ – a term my mom uses when she loves someone or something! It’s such an emotional time when this decision has to be made, so I’m so grateful to know my mom is happy and well taken care of!

The staff is incredibly warm, engaging, and available, always with sincere smiles on their faces. We really feel part of a wonderful community, so much so that “Mom’s Place” has become a new destination for us – enjoying the company of other residents and staff in the impressive and impeccably designed group spaces. In addition to making many new friends and sharing new experiences, mom now leads an active lifestyle and loves her beautiful new apartment.

I wanted you to know how much I appreciate the support and encouragement you and the entire staff of Bridges memory care has provided me and my family. It has been a great comfort knowing that my mother is well taken care of during this challenging time. The “at home” feeling of the open spaces and the private rooms is experienced as soon as you enter the building. We are confident that we’ve made the right selection in Bridges.

After having cared for both parents and seeing what happens when plans have not been made in advance, we decided to make our choices now rather than in time of distress. Are we ready for this move? Yes. Could we have waited? Yes. But in reality, we were ready to sacrifice another year or two in our beloved home of 51 years. Just think – no more property taxes, lawn care or exterior maintenance – and the list goes on. We can simply enjoy a stress-free life, and we deserve that.

EPOCH Senior Living is dedicated to being a valuable resource for the greater community. We are pleased to offer a variety of informational blogs, educational events, and support groups via Zoom for seniors and their family members, whether they live within one of our premier communities or are simply looking for guidance on a particular topic.

Bridges® by EPOCH communities host expert dementia education and insight based on years of experience and research. The sessions connect at-home caregivers with the tips and support they need when caring for a loved one with memory loss.
