    About My Business
    Motivated by a strong commitment to caring with respect and enhancing quality of life for those in all stages of memory loss, EPOCH Senior Living first created its comprehensive memory care program, BRIDGES, in separate secure households within many EPOCH assisted living communities.

    Recognizing a growing need for assisted living communities that specialize in memory challenges, EPOCH Senior Living created Bridges by EPOCH memory care communities. These communities are dedicated to caring exclusively for those with Alzheimer’s disease and memory loss.
