How can we help?
Dedicated Life Enrichment Team
At Bridges® by EPOCH at Andover, we get to know our residents as individuals. We learn about their life experiences and listen to their stories. We explore their favorite hobbies and discover what makes them happy. By building these meaningful connections, our dedicated life enrichment team can personalize activities and therapies that reinforce individual abilities and preferences, so residents enjoy fulfillment and increased self-esteem.
Most importantly, we focus on residents’ strengths, value their opinions, and encourage them to have an active voice in their activities and care. The life enrichment team at Bridges® by EPOCH at Andover creates a variety of meaningful enrichment opportunities for those with memory loss – from fitness classes and sensory therapies to live entertainment to baking and painting to cognitive games. We also take residents to local parks, attractions, sporting events, cafés, and other fun destinations!
