CINCINNATI, Feb. 16, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- After sixty-five years, though home is most certainly where its heart is, the core of the newly minted name Episcopal Retirement Services (ERS) - replacing Episcopal Retirement Homes - is the portfolio of services they offer, over half a century in the making.

Starting today, a rebranding behind the new ERS takes effect; but in reality, the old ERH has long ago transformed into a person-centered family of services both within their premier retirement communities as well as the delivery of services to the Tri-State community at large.

Services are strategically aligned and woven together to maximize impact. This includes the continuum of care that has perpetually helped residents at Marjorie P. Lee and Deupree House achieve and maintain health and independence as they age; a unique range of services at Affordable Living by ERS, which provides safe, comfortable, community living for low-income older adults in Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky; and the combination of in-home and community-based services such as Deupree Meals On Wheels, Parish Health Ministry which supports church health ministries through advocacy, education and wellness programs, and Living Well Senior Solutions, a program that provides guidance to elders and their families on issues related to aging.

"We put people first. Always have, always will, and that's what makes our services best in class," said Spitler. "ERS has developed, for more than a half-century, into a premier, innovative, thought-leadership position in our field. Changing our name is a completely logical, evolutionary transition to more accurately represent what Episcopal Retirement Services has become, and where we are headed."

The service behind Episcopal Retirement Services creates an environment that encourages and supports meaningful, consistent relationships, through a variety of person-centered interactions. Behind it all: the strength of ERS, a faith-based, award-winning, trusted developer, manager and service-provider for seniors and senior-living communities.

ERS now serves more than 1,500 residents and touches another 12,000 people through the community-based services it provides, including parishioners from 77 churches served by Parish Health Ministry and 300 seniors enjoying fresh, hot Deupree Meals On Wheels. Their resident population continues to grow with the rapid expansion of Affordable Living by ERS, where more than 1,100 low-income older adults now call home.
