We invite you to tour our center today! Learn more about services, events, and care philosophy by visiting our location and meeting with our dedicated staff.

"My love of the center is the people. To see the staff interact with a resident, especially when they don’t realize they are being watched, is truly amazing. Our staff help each resident find his or her own voice, their personality, their smile…. Our staff often become an extended family to our residents and, in turn, residents respond to that love and care. Being connected to Exceptional Care & Training Center has been a positive, life-changing experience for me. It is my hope that ECTC can provide a positive experience for each person who lives, works or is connected to ECTC, too."
