What We Are


Surrogate Son is a professional, fully bonded family task service based in Penfield, New York,
owned and run by me, Ralph Ercolano.

We will, at your request, clean your garage, accompany your mother to the doctor, make dinner and fix that leaky sink spout... all on the same day if you like! We'll balance your checkbook, teach Dad how to use e-mail and then spend two hours on the phone with his bank and the Social Security people hunting down his monthly check. (We particularly enjoy our advocacy work...)

Do you live a distance from your loved ones?
We regularly look in on and assist local folks whose children and loved ones live, for example, in another state. We'll work with you, help define your family's needs and then see to it that they're well cared for, whatever their needs may be.

We're happy to provide personal and professional references to help put your mind at ease.
Again, Surrogate Son is fully insured and bonded.

We invite you to see these other great services we've come to trust:
