A new assisted living center in Norwalk is helping people who suffer from Alzheimer's disease, dementia and other forms of memory loss.
The layout of Bridges by EPOCH consists of four "households," each named after a different Norwalk island -- Shea, Sheffield, Hoyt and Betts. The houses each have a front porch, living room, kitchen and access to an outdoor back porch.
On a day-to-day basis, the center holds enrichment programs where residents can see shows, participate in exercise classes and even see live music.
Wellness directors say the goal is to physically, mentally and emotionally engage the residents.
Each household contains 14 private and two companion suites. All of them have private bathrooms.
