EPOCH Senior Living & National Development

Waterstone at the Circle, a senior living community in Chestnut Hill, : the exceptional senior housing and care provider, EPOCH Senior Living, and one of New England’s preeminent real estate and investment firms, National Development.

With decades of experience in design, development, construction, finance, operations, and management of senior living communities between them, the two highly respected organizations formed a strategic partnership dedicated to developing, building, and operating new senior housing communities that enhance the health, well-being, and overall quality of life for seniors and their families throughout New England.
