Seniors have contributed so much to our community. Now that they are in need of certain services and assistance, it is our turn to give something in return. Our way of giving thanks to all their hard work and contributions to the society is through the services of various agencies and organizations serving them.

A broad array of services to help seniors are available in the State of Illinois. The system of care offered is tailored to suit the needs of every senior in our community and covers different areas such as health, nutrition, home care, and social welfare, among others.

To ensure that our seniors get what they need and deserve, we have compiled a list of organizations, agencies, centers, and support groups that are committed to serving seniors in Illinois. The agencies and organizations below cover multiple areas of care and assistance for all seniors in our community.

Agencies and Organizations Serving Seniors in Indiana

 

Aging brings new obstacles and challenges. When seniors, due to health issues and other factors, lose certain abilities, who should they turn to? The community. 

Community support is vital to our seniors’ health and well-being. Sadly, senior care can be expensive. And there are certain senior care areas that are not covered by health insurance. In Indiana, there are community groups that are dedicated to helping seniors in various aspects of their lives, which include but are not limited to home care, respite care, nutrition and wellness, legal assistance, and counseling.

However, seniors and their respective families often do not know, or are not aware, that there are many community resources and programs that they can ask help from. They do not know where to start or where to look. With this in mind, we have compiled numerous organizations and programs offering services that seniors of Indiana can access.
