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.
I am honored to be a part of this amazing team. Our caregivers are so knowledgeable about each individual person, ensuring their personal preferences and needs are addressed. The nurses address any chronic and acute issues, while being nurturing and understanding of their concerns and fears. Our dietary staff take great pride in serving the best food, plated so it is also a feast for the eyes. Life enrichment engages every resident on their level, encouraging maximum cognitive stimulation and participation. Facility management/maintenance is as aware of each individual resident as well, and is engaged with them, and knows them personally. Our senior advisors are interactive with our residents, participating in activities and helping families with questions and concerns. The management team is always asking how we can do better, and never advertise “good enough”. We are truly a family, and always support each other, from families, residents to our coworkers.

BRIGHT AND WELCOMING
Bridges in Norwalk has been built for dementia patients and it is the best care facility I have seen and very happy that my husband is with them. There are a lot of big windows letting the sun in, it is laid out so residents can get around easily… not a lot of long hallways. The caregivers are very helpful and kind, the food looks delicious, and surroundings are well taken care of. For families, you want to visit because it's bright, pretty and welcoming... and now that spring is here ... the outside gardens and walking path are calming and a beautiful place to sit or walk with your loved one. So glad that Bridges built this facility and for those of us in need of extra support and help ... this is the perfect place.

COMMUNITY OUTREACH EFFORTS
AS GOOD AS IT GETS
SHE’S HERSELF AGAIN
My mother is a different person after coming to Bridges®. When she first moved in, she was anxious and combative; she was experiencing delusions. Today, she is stable, happy and well-adjusted — she’s herself again.
The team at Bridges is great. The staff is friendly, helpful, confident and experienced. My mom enjoys interacting with them a great deal.
My mom talks a lot about the programming at Bridges® by EPOCH. They offer an organized, structured environment, which is great for her. She always knows which activities are happening each day, and she’s involved in a lot — I have to check her schedule and make sure she’s available before planning a visit.
