Peace of Mind for Cape Cod Seniors and Their Families
Compassionate Care for All Stages of Memory Loss
Delivering unmatched memory care and services on the Cape, Bridges® by EPOCH at Mashpee is a safe haven built exclusively for area seniors living with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. Here, our compassionate, dementia-trained associates, state-of-the-art design and specialized Bridges® programming come together to add more meaning and joy to our residents’ daily lives with dignity and respect.
Our inviting community is a collection of small, distinct households, each staffed by its own highly trained dementia care professionals who understand the challenges associated with memory loss and how to handle them with patience and kindness. Bridges® by EPOCH households have fewer than 20 private or companion memory care suites, creating an intimate, familiar living space that encourages strong bonds and trusting relationships between residents and associates.
Bridges® by EPOCH at Mashpee’s smart design helps people with memory loss safely and confidently explore their respective households (including secure, outdoor courtyards) and move about as they wish.
This architectural design strategy includes special lighting and paint schemes that reduce anxiety, easy-to-navigate hallways and directional cues that reduce confusion, and camouflaged exits and high-tech safety features that prevent wandering.
Personalized Wellness Programming
Bridges® by EPOCH at Mashpee’s residents thrive with our highly specialized Bridges® memory care and wellness program. Developed with Joyce Simard, an internationally acclaimed Alzheimer’s disease expert, this resident-centered approach to memory care focuses on who the person still is and on maintaining their skills and abilities that remain, not on those that have been lost. The approach requires all Bridges® staff members to truly get to know each resident – their likes, dislikes, dietary needs and preferences, hobbies, behavioral triggers, current physical and cognitive abilities – and to receive ongoing dementia training in order to formulate the most engaging and efficient blend of expert-recommended exercises and activities, sensory therapies and interactive technologies, care techniques and assistance that will create happy, meaningful moments for a particular individual.
Short-Term Care Available
Cape Cod caregivers trust Bridges® by EPOCH at Mashpee to take exceptional care of their family member when they have to go out of town, tend to other responsibilities or when their loved one needs an advanced level of assistance and memory care following an injury, illness or surgery.
Our short-term guests enjoy the same exceptional dementia care, personal assistance and services as our full-time residents: a daily choice of activities and events that enrich the body, mind and soul; comfortable and welcoming accommodations; delicious, nutritious, restaurant-style meals served in a family atmosphere; and the companionship of peers who have similar abilities and interests.
