What Our Families Say
We could fill several websites telling you about our supportive, purpose-built design, personalized life-enrichment programs, and exceptional care and services … but, while remarkable and unique, those are merely the ingredients we use to create the real magic of Bridges® – the magic that is shown on the faces of our residents and felt in the hearts of their families.
EXCITED ABOUT RESOURCES
Sometimes I just need some validation, and I’m excited about the resources you offer since I could really use the support. I can’t thank you enough for your kindness.

WONDERFUL TO WORK WITH
My father-in-law is in Bridges by EPOCH at Nashua and it’s fantastic. It’s amazing and they’re on the ball. They know how to talk to people with dementia. They’ve been wonderful to work with. The dining area is very open, and you have two choices per meal, and snacks whenever they want. He seems very happy. He’s got a lot of friends and he loves talking about his cars. They called me to do occupational therapy for him. They want him to move, so that’s something that’s in the works, which is good.

RESOURCE TO FAMILIES
Who doesn’t love a surprise? Thank you for your very thoughtful gift. I looked at the contents and immediately began reading chapters all over the book that I identified with. This is undoubtedly the best book on the Alzheimer’s/dementia journey that I have read. I can already tell how helpful it will be to me. Thank you again.

I just wanted to thank you for the tremendous help you gave us today. After meeting you and your associates, I am so happy I decided on your facility as I can see you really make your residents and their well-being your top priority.
Thanks also for turning our nightmare of a day into one that brought us inner peace.

ENGAGED, LOVING CARE & WONDERFUL ACTIVITIES
After researching and visiting 16 different facilities, I placed my mother at Bridges in Westford in May 2018 as it offered her the best environment, daily activities/ lifestyle, and engaged, loving care for someone with dementia. I like to visit my mother a lot (10-12 hours a week) so I know Bridges well and I am very glad that my mom is there. Everything at Bridges is available for my mom – totally unlike those small, dreary lockdown memory units in the bigger facilities. Mom loves nature and thoroughly enjoys the open door to the expansive, beautiful garden replete with 5 very sweet chickens and a coop! We love sharing a delicious lunch or dinner together on the patio. We also greatly enjoy many of the wonderful activities that are offered – the musical entertainment is fantastic! I have fun, too, and it is fun to see so many of the residents singing along with songs they’ve known so well. It’s a very upbeat, caring, and positive place. My mom often comments, “This is a nice place,” or “I like this place,” or “I feel safe here.” My mom is happy. So, I am happy. I would give Bridges 10 stars if I could!

SAFE, CARED FOR & ENTERTAINED
My 97-year-old uncle is very happy at Bridges in Nashua which is a big relief to my cousins who are so pleased with the care he’s getting there. You guys are doing a great job keeping everyone safe, cared for, and entertained during these very difficult times. Keep up the good work and thanks again.
