Save home care services NOW
On March 15th, the Illinois Department on Aging ran out of funding for the Community Care Program. More than 80,000 seniors in Illinois depend on a Community Care home care provider to help them live independently.
Call your state legislator now to ask them to support supplemental funding for the Community Care Program.
Community Care providers are already months behind on getting paid. This payment stoppage will start to push providers to close their doors, causing seniors to lose their independence and be forced into costly nursing home care.
