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.


Dinner was delicious. We really enjoyed it. Thank you for your generosity… hats off to the chef

When my dad was in practice, and even well after he retired, it never ceased to surprise me how many people recognized him and would stop to talk about what a wonderful pediatrician he had been to them or to their children. The words people used most often to describe him were kind, caring, gentle, and warm. I can’t tell you how grateful I am that in his time of need Dad received the same kind of compassionate care that he himself once gave so freely. Not being able to be by his side when he was ill was difficult for me, but knowing that he was surrounded by people who obviously deeply cared for him and for his well-being eased my pain.

We appreciate you, and wish you the best as you continue your work during this difficult time.

I wanted to give you some great feedback on today’s Americana Memory Café.  My father and my husband both participated in it today and had a wonderful time. The music was fun, memorable, and my Dad’s favorites. I’m sorry that I wasn’t able to participate also but I have to tell you that when I arrived home shortly afterwards, they were both happy and glowing from having a good time. Thank you so much for offering this program to us. We look forward to participating in more of them in the future. Keep up the good work!

We couldn’t have asked for better care for my parents during their residency at Bridges by EPOCH of Andover. The accommodations are spacious and comfortable and have a homey feel. There are numerous activities to engage the residents. But best of all are the many staff members who go the extra mile in their compassion and commitment to the health and well-being of the residents. The current pandemic has made their job complicated and dangerous but their dedication hasn’t faltered. A heartfelt thank you to Bridges.
