ISSUE: 14A Hosting an Illinois General Assembly 2020 Update!

Illinois Association of Area Agencies on Aging will be hosting a ZOOM meeting on October 27, 2020 at 2:00 PM and a GoToMeeting on October 29, 2020 at 9:00 AM to inform the Illinois General Assembly of the accomplishments and challenges that the Aging Network has faced during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The October 27, 2020 ZOOM meeting is for the Non-Metro legislators, i.e. State House Representatives from Districts 67-76, 87-96, and 99-118 and State Senators from Districts 34-38, 44-48, and 50-59. The October 29, 2020 GoToMeeting is for the “Chicago-Metro” legislators, i.e. State House Representatives from Districts 1-66, 77-86, and 97-98 and State Senators from Districts 1-33, 39-43, and 49. Of course, we welcome any to attend either!

The Aging Network worked very hard during this time to make sure older adults and caregivers continued to receive services.  The Area Agency Director from your area will be available to discuss what action was taken in your district.  Many services have been adjusted and are being provided through technology or via the phone. Some services such as Home Delivered Meals have grown enormously due to the fact that all older adults are now considered Home Bound and eligible for a meal. 

Come hear about the innovative ways the Aging Network in your district is providing these services and what they are doing to prevent Social Isolation as our older adults and caregivers are coping in these trying times!
