EPOCH Senior Living & National Development

Waterstone at the Circle was developed by 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.

Our collective goal is to ensure that residents thrive – and they do. From our Waterstone retirement living communities to our Bridges® by EPOCH memory care assisted living communities, EPOCH Senior Living and National Development have helped define and shape what “living well” means to seniors and their families through our programs, services and amenities.

Morris, Waterstone Resident

“I just called my daughter Karen to tell her that tomorrow marks two years that I’m here. I told her, and I’ve conveyed the sentiment to many people looking at Waterstone, that I haven’t regretted one day of my move here! Much of that sentiment has to do with the physical facility, but even more is due to the wonderful staff, from the activities folks, the kitchen crew, the maintenance guys, etc.! I hope to celebrate several more Waterstone anniversaries.”

– Morris, Waterstone Resident
