At the Bridges® by EPOCH at Norwalk, the entire team gets to know each resident on a personal level – learning their life stories, passions, likes, dislikes and cherished memories. They provide a full, enriching experience through meaningful engagement that is designed to spark joy. The Bridges® approach is designed exclusively to enhance dignity and fulfillment in daily life for those living with Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia. The above details are just a few reasons why the Connecticut Assisted Living Association considers them a valued member!
