Two of our central goals here at Episcopal Retirement Services, as stated by our new President and CEO, Laura Lamb, are to fight ageism and to help Cincinnati become one of the most age-inclusive cities in the nation.

How to Make Your Home Alzheimer’s and Dementia Friendly

Many people in Cincinnati provide full-time care, in their own homes, for loved ones with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. For some, it’s a labor of love. For others, it’s a necessary cost-saving measure.

New App Gives Adult Children Tools For Keeping In Touch With Elderly Parent’s Caregivers 📲

For the adult children of elderly parents, perhaps the most pressing question on the mind, day in and day out, is, “Are Mom and Dad OK?”

It’s a question that more and more American adults are asking themselves. People 65 or older will make up 20 percent or more of the population of the United States by 2050. That’s double what it was in the 1950s, when most of the Baby Boomers, who are now reaching peak retirement, were born.
