Senior Services Agencies

The Illinois Department on Aging (IDOA) administers programs and services that directly serve senior citizens and provides assistance to their caregivers.  The programs help seniors remain in their homes and live independently. From in-home services to community activities, IDOA is committed to improving the quality of life of senior citizens in Illinois.

To access the programs locally, IDOA works with community based agencies (Area Agencies on Aging), which connect seniors with local resources within their communities.  To find out more information about programs in your area, contact the Suburban Cook County Area Agency on Aging, AgeOptions, at (708) 383-0258.  You may also visit the Illinois Department on Aging, or call the Senior HelpLine at 1-800-252-8966.

In addition to AgeOptions, the Illinois Department on Aging has identified Coordinating Care Units (Senior Services Agencies) throughout suburban Cook County that link senior citizens and their caregivers to vital programs, services, activities, support groups and more. Contact your local Coordinating Care Unit for more information.
