NOTE: Episcopal Church Home has temporarily stopped outside admissions to our memory care neighborhoods so we can accommodate the needs of our current residents during our Master Plan renovation process. For more information about our bold new vision for the ECH campus, please visit this page to learn more.


Just because your loved one has dementia doesn’t mean the conversation is over. Behind the eyes of each resident living with Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia, there lies a lifetime of experiences that make up their unique life story.

At ECH, we believe each resident deserves to live with dignity and respect, and that we have an obligation to engage them in a meaningful way and provide them with the best quality of life possible.

Each of our four memory care neighborhoods is designed to feel like home. Around those neighborhoods, you will find friendly pets, family-style kitchens, neighbors dining together, extensive secure outdoor areas and comfortable living rooms and sun porches.

As memory care needs increase, our Marmion neighborhood just down the hall provides 24-hour skilled nursing care. Not all memory care centers have that capability. Personal Care residents in each of the 4 neighborhoods have a private bedroom with private bath. Reed and West Personal Care Memory Care monthly fees start at $6,775, and Marmion Long-term Care Memory Support daily fees start at $335.

All residents enjoy common living rooms, family-style kitchens and dining rooms. The familiarity and homelike atmosphere of this design concept contribute to resident’s feelings of acceptance, wellbeing and purpose. Staff members trained specifically to work with the needs of memory-impaired residents follow a program of care based on their individual needs and abilities.
