Serving Norfolk County Seniors and Their Families
Compassionate, Empowering Care for All Stages of Memory Loss
Located just 12 miles southwest of Boston, Bridges® by EPOCH at Westwood is built exclusively to help area seniors living with early- to late-stage Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias enjoy a higher quality of life with dignity, respect and meaning.
Safe, Uplifting, Homelike Households Encourage Independence
Residents are at home at Bridges® by EPOCH.
Our community is comprised of small households, and each is assigned its own highly trained dementia care team who treats the residents like family. Each household is limited to fewer than 20 private or companion memory care suites, creating an intimate, familiar environment that encourages affectionate, trusting relationships between residents and associates.
Bridges® by EPOCH at Westwood is designed to help people with memory loss safely and confidently explore their respective households (including secure, outdoor courtyards) as they wish.
Carefully selected lighting and paint schemes that reduce anxiety, smart traffic-flow designs that reduce confusion, directional cues that guide the way to successful independent navigation, camouflaged exits and high-tech safety features that prevent wandering, aromatherapy that improves mood… Bridges® by EPOCH truly is a welcoming safe haven for people with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias.
Personalized Wellness Programming
Body • Mind • Soul
EPOCH Senior Living’s highly personalized Bridges® memory care program was developed with internationally acclaimed dementia care expert Joyce Simard. This resident-centered approach to memory care focuses on maintaining and strengthening residents’ abilities that remain, not fruitlessly trying to recapture those that have been lost. The approach requires all Bridges® staff members to truly get to know each resident – their likes, dislikes, hobbies, behavioral triggers, dietary needs and preferences, current physical and cognitive abilities – and to receive ongoing dementia training in order to utilize the most effective blend of expert-recommended activities, exercises, sensory therapies, interactive communication technologies, care techniques and assistance that will lead to happy, meaningful moments for a particular individual.
