Resources for Aging in Place

Aging in place is possible in large part because townships, libraries, and other organizations provide a wide array of services for seniors—more than we can list here.

Help with basic needs includes transportation through township buses and taxi coupons; nutrition programs such as senior lunches and dine-out programs; support in finding a case manager, caregiver support groups, help with money management; and household help with chore and handyman services.

 

Social life can be enhanced through participation in a variety of park district programs that offer enrichment as well as conviviality through lectures, art and craft classes, and more. Silver Sneakers and memory cafés help seniors get out and participate in a group while doing good for their physical and mental health.
