Come Home to Bridges®
Bridges® by EPOCH at Andover features a welcoming residential design that has been carefully crafted to support those with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia.

Designed for Outdoor Living
Research shows that sunshine and fresh air are good for the body and soul, and it’s especially true for those living with dementia. At Bridges® by EPOCH at Andover, our community boasts secure outdoor living – a fully enclosed, beautifully landscaped courtyard.
Residents can walk around landscaped paths, watch wildlife in the gardens, help fill the bird feeders or simply chat with friends on the patio. Raised planter boxes give residents the opportunity to plant and tend the garden. Plus, our chefs prepare appetizing meals using the vegetables and herbs that residents help grow.
I'm so glad we found Bridges® by EPOCH for Mom. It is a very good fit for her needs as Alzheimer’s progresses. She is doing very well there. Through this pandemic, they have kept her safe and well cared for.
