Area Agency on Aging Contacts-Planning & Services Areas

An Area Agency on Aging is a public or private non-profit agency, designated by the Illinois Department on Aging to address the needs and concerns of older persons (60+) at the regional and local levels.

How an Area Agency can help:

  • We provide answers you can trust: For over 45 years, we have helped older adults and their families find the programs, information and resources they need.
  • Help for older adults: We can also connect you with government funded programs for in-home care, Meals on Wheels, Health Promotion  and much more.
  • Help for Caregivers: Caring for an older adult can sometimes be challenging.  We help family or friend caregivers with services like respite, support groups, and training that help caregivers cope.
