A PERIOD IN A PERSON’S LIFE MARKED BY NOTABLE EVENTS OR CHARACTERISTICS
Bridges® by EPOCH’s compassionate memory care experts share one important mission: to mark this period in our residents’ lives with notable moments of joy, purpose and peace not ordinarily associated with memory loss.
Bridges® by EPOCH at Andover actively promotes residents’ independence, wellness, comfort, and enjoyment in all stages of memory loss. The innovative Bridges® approach to daily life is highly individualized, and our residential environments are comfortable, dementia-positive and safe, encouraging residents to participate in community life with confidence.
Uplifting Programs, Events & Activities
Our life enrichment team creates innovative ways to improve quality of life for our residents through all stages of dementia. We focus on providing a full life experience through engagement that is meaningful and sparks joy for them.
We get to know each resident personally – their favorite memories and stories, life achievements, skills, hobbies and other interests – and customize activities and therapies (like music, pet or reminiscence) to increase happiness and raise self-esteem while exercising their physical, cognitive and social skills.
Above all, we respect residents’ abilities, value their opinions, and encourage them to have an active voice in their daily care and activities. If they like to paint, sing or play games, that’s what we do. If they have a favorite local entertainer, we invite them to come perform for us. If they want to see the ocean, we even take them to the beach. We also take them to local cafés, parks, sporting events, and other fun destinations!VIEW OUR ACTIVITIES CALENDAR
