Since 1951, Episcopal Retirement Services (ERS) has worked to improve the lives of older adults through innovative, quality senior living communities and through community services to older adults.
ERS began as the Memorial Homes Foundation serving 20 older women in a home in Clifton, near the University of Cincinnati. Today, ERS serves older adults through senior living communities, as well as in-home and community-based services. We offer a variety of senior living options to accommodate all levels of care including:
Our premier communities, including the Marjorie P. Lee Retirement Community and Deupree House, located in the neighborhood of Hyde Park in Cincinnati, Ohio and Episcopal Church Home, located in Louisville, Kentucky. ERS also has affordable housing options for seniors with low incomes by offering 25 communities throughout Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana.
In addition to retirement communities, ERS provides services for seniors living in their own homes through Living Well Senior Solutions and Deupree Meals On Wheels. Parish Health Ministry coordinates a large network of churches to provide grassroots health-related services throughout Southern Ohio.
As part of our mission, ERS committed $2 million in 2016 to resident philanthropic services. In large part, these funds support the needs of residents who have outlived their financial resources.
