Our Sponsors

Waterstone at Wellesley was conceived and developed by a partnership of two Boston-based companies, EPOCH Senior Living and National Development. The collaboration of the two sponsors combines the expertise of an outstanding senior housing and care operator, EPOCH Senior Living and one of New England’s pre-eminent 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 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. From project inception through project completion and ongoing operations, a steadfast commitment to quality and excellence is our most important priority. 

EPOCH Senior Living and National Development share a purpose that unites an extraordinary group of people who are dedicated to building and operating the highest quality senior housing communities, services and programs available anywhere. Our collective goal in this partnership is to ensure that residents thrive – and they are. Our communities have helped define and shape what “living well” means to seniors in New England. From programs such as BRIDGESR Memory Care to award-winning senior lifestyle communities such as Waterstone, these initiatives are just a few examples of how we have improved the lives of those we serve.

Like any successful organization, a solid foundation must evolve: initiating, learning and growing to become more effective within a changing world. Together, EPOCH and National Development will continue to strengthen, develop and create new communities, programs, operations, strategies and environments that empower seniors to define personal success, both now and for generations to come. In addition to the three successful communities that they have completed together to date, National Development and EPOCH have three new senior housing communities under construction as of September 2014, with several additional communities in the planning and pre-development stages.
