FAMILY SUPPORT SERVICES
We provide services to help families as they transition to having a loved one in long-term care. We are here to help make that process as smooth as possible and to ease your mind during this time. Below we list the support services available to you and your family.

Dementia Support Group
The Dementia Support Group meets once, every other month in the evenings at ERCC. The group is for caregivers to develop a mutual support system where feelings, needs and concerns can be shared. Additionally, guest speakers are often brought in to provide information about programs available for families that have a loved one who suffers from memory loss and to provide information about resources available in the community.
