A wonderful resource for local families…
This organization celebrates its 40th Anniversary this year, yet there are probably many people with no idea of the broad range of services offered–or that about 600 volunteers currently service our community.
A few services offered: flu shots, computer classes, counseling to help with Medicare, direction on getting heating assistance, special events, luncheons and so much more.
There are locations around town that serve up inexpensive and healthy lunches to those who wish to get out and have lunch, who might seek a little companionship with their meal. They’re called Congregate Cafe’s and menu’s, hours and locations are posted on The Council’s website.
Mission Statement: The Council on Aging provides aging adults and their support system with services and opportunities that enable them to achieve an optimal, self-defined, quality of life.
As I gain experience in working in Non-Medical Home Care, I understand that there are so many misconceptions about it. Our goal is always to help those who need assistance keep their independence and live the most full and active lives possible.
Often services to the elderly are seen as taking those things away…
In looking at The Lake County Council on Aging’s website, there are many, many ways they support our local families. Too many to list in this blog.
And it isn’t just the elderly who need help, but families/caregivers and others who can find information to better support elderly loved ones. I’d encourage those with family, friends and elderly loved ones to visit this website.
