Designed for Outdoor Living

We know that fresh air and sunshine are good for us – and it’s particularly true for those with dementia. At Bridges® by EPOCH at Norwalk, our second floor boasts a partially covered, open-air deck for social gatherings and time outdoors, while the first floor features a secure, fully enclosed courtyard. 

Residents can enjoy a stroll along the courtyard’s walking paths, relax on the comfortable deck or patio seating, watch the birds at the bird feeders, look for wildlife in the gardens or plant and tend vegetables in the raised planter boxes. Best of all, our culinary team prepares delicious foods using the herbs and vegetables that our residents help grow.
