My mother-in-law just passed away at Bridges. She was so well cared for by every employee! She was so happy and secure there. She was a night owl and the staff would bring her to sit with them. They would have ice cream parties! Thank you to all those wonderful people.

My Dad was transferred to Bridges in a very short time with assistance from Place for Mom after an accident almost causing his early retirement at 90. Bridges Staff is better than 5 stars. They should be regarded as a model for what should exist in specialized alzheimer's and dementia care. Gourmet dining from Patty and commitment, compassion, dedication and caring from all staff. The respect, for not only residents, but family members and guests is way ahead of the pack. Take a look at - Bravissimo !!

My mother was one of the first residents to move into the Mashpee community when it opened in July, 2015. It was an incredibly smooth transition for Mom as she quickly eased into her new home. The facility and the programs far exceed all of the memory care communities I visited on Cape Cod and the South Shore of Boston. The building and the grounds are beautiful and designed in a fashion that makes each resident feel safe and at home. The programs are innovative, varied and catered to meet the each resident's interests and needs. What is most impressive is the quality of the staff. Every staff member I've interacted with (which have been the majority of them) are dedicated and highly professional. Most importantly, they are compassionate, loving and will go the extra mile for their residents. For example, Mom was anxious and confused after a multi-day stay at a hospital. They made arrangements for one of the housekeepers who speaks both English and Spanish to greet Mom in her room upon her return from the hospital. They knew that Mom had a special bond with the housekeeper and that Mom found comfort when speaking Spanish (her first language) with her. Seeing the housekeeper's loving face upon her arrival immediately put Mom at ease and reminded her that she had returned home. This is just one of many stories I can share of staff genuinely caring for Mom and by extension, her family. The one price model (as opposed to different rates based on the level of care required) makes it very easy to manage finances. At the end of the day, Mom is the happiest she's been in years. She is loved, cared for, respected and celebrated at Bridges by EPOCH. We're so blessed for her to be a member of the Bridges family!

About Bridges by EPOCH at Mashpee

EPOCH Assisted Living's acclaimed BRIDGES at Mashpee is a unique community designed around a specially developed program that combines the latest technologies in memory impairment research with a comfortable, homelike environment, redefining the way memory care assisted living is provided today. Our goal is to make a real difference in the lives of those touched by Alzheimer's disease and other dementias. Families are also an important member of our community and always welcome to join us for activities or events.

Memory impairment can alter a person's vision, hearing, and sense of smell and touch. We have designed our community to encourage feelings of familiarity and security for all residents. Design features include color-coded objects, the use of non-glare flooring, special lighting and uniquely designed program spaces to help residents feel at home. The home-like atmosphere is further enhanced through specially selected color schemes to evoke comfort and pleasure. Outside courtyards are also designed to allow residents a safe means to enjoy outside activities.

We are proud to be one of the few memory care assisted living communities that offer care for late stages of Alzheimer's disease, allowing our residents to be able to age in place as their disease progresses. Our various programs address the different stages of memory decline, allowing us to provide customized care for each of our resident's individual needs.

Our BRIDGES program provides a nurturing environment in which residents experience life's pleasures. Our specially trained and compassionate staff tailors activities to individual interests and abilities, increasing self-worth, confidence and joy.
