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.

Unparalleled Staff

During the past year, I have gotten to know the staff and most residents. I have learned about the added services you offer. At every turn, the staff has been supportive, caring and helpful. After working as a nurse for 44 years, I feel fortunate in being able to recognize quality care when I see it. The staff at Bridges is unparalleled in my experience. My sister and I appreciate all of you. - Julie B., Daughter of Bridges® Resident


I have a friend who resides there and the amenities are fabulous. Always something going on! The place is tastefully decorated, allowing for a “homey” feel for the residents. The staff is friendly and interacts well, not only with the residents, but visitors as well. – Peggy, Friend of Bridges® Resident


Awesome place and a great memory care community. Very beautiful and outstanding. Great care is their passion and they also relate so well with the residents. Great staff.

I have attended several caregiver support workshops by Bridges by EPOCH at Westwood and have found them very helpful. The experience, compassion and professionalism conveyed during these groups is wonderful and again, very helpful. We are not yet a resident of Bridges, but they are providing a real community service presenting these support groups and having them open to the public, not just families of residents. AND, I learned that they are also a great source for questions even if you are not a resident. They are a wonderful group of knowledgeable, caring people. – Laurence, Friend of Bridges®


We are so grateful for our partnership with Bridge by EPOCH. They are always willing to share their knowledge and expertise to Westwood seniors here at the Center. And we have heard from many families that their inhouse programs are simply the best. Thank you Bridges for all that you do to help our elder community here in Westwood. – Lina Arena-DeRosa, Director of Council on Aging and Friend of Bridges®


I have attended several zoom presentations by Bridges by EPOCH at Westwood and have learned much from each presentation! Through these presentations, I think Bridges is providing a real community service as well as helping families, friends and caregivers of those residing at Bridges. The most recent presentation I attended featured Brent Forester, MD from McLean Hospital's Geriatric Psychiatry department speaking on Alzheimer' s Disease and Healthy Brain Aging. I greatly appreciated their recommendations backed by research on such topics as heart disease management, the importance of activity, nutrition, and so much more. I came away from the presentation feeling both hopeful and informed about concrete steps to take for the best chance of good outcomes. – Kathy, Friend of Bridges®
