Linkage is a magazine published regularly through Episcopal Retirement Homes (ERH) and sent to the community at large to share information and news about the many community services we provide. I am pleased to introduce this special Linkage supplement in My Turn and am excited to give you a glimpse into ERH, particularly the distinguished retirement communities of Marjorie P. Lee and Deupree House located in the Hyde Park Area.
 
These are the stories of individuals whose contributions have improved the community in which we live while they themselves continue to experience life to the fullest. They are inquisitive, intelligent, engaged and fun to be with and we are proud that they have chosen an Episcopal Retirement Homes Community as their home or place of employment.

For nearly 60 years erh has been setting the standard for retirement living, and as a faith-based not-for-profit organization, we approach things differently. We continually invest our resources to ensure we are the leading edge in providing the very best for the older adults who count on us every day. For example, should one of our residents experience financial difficulty, we even provide confidential financial assistance to ensure they can continue to live comfortably and with dignity at their ERH community.
 
You may not know that beyond these two premier retirement communities, ERH also provides affordable housing for lower income seniors at three communities, as well as services to assist older adults living in their own homes including Living Well Senior Solutions Geriatric Care Services and Deupree Meals On Wheels. Our compassion for serving seniors, our extensive expertise, a stable and dedicated staff — and most importantly the people we serve — are what make us who we are. after reading about some of our residents and the people who work here, I believe you will begin to understand what we at Episcopal Retirement Homes already know: Something very special is going on here.
