We are pleased to announce that preparations are underway for the 8th annual Aging Well Month…Engaging, Learning and Serving.  During the month of May, which is also Older Americans’ Month, there will be a series of programs and events that are relevant, informative and helpful for older adults in our communities to age well.  These programs are hosted by community organizations and businesses with an interest in the health and well-being of older adults.  ALL programs are FREE of charge.
Look for the calendar of events in your local newspaper on Thursday, April 16th or pick one up at Aging Care Connections, 111 W. Harris Ave, La Grange.  Check back to view an electronic copy on our website.

In addition to the outstanding programs that will take place during the Aging Well Month, we will also be honoring older adults who volunteer in our community through the Community GEMs (going the Extra Mile) Volunteer Recognition Program.  All nominees will be honored at a luncheon on April 30th at the La Grange Country Club.  Click here for the nomination form.

Aging Care Connections Awarded $965,000 Grant for National Expansion of Transitional Care Program

Aging Care Connections recently secured a $965,000 grant from The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation to support the expansion and implementation of the Bridge Model of Transitional Care and AIMS (Ambulatory Integration of the Medical and Social) interventions to directly serve a significant population of low-income, vulnerable older adults in the Chicago metro area and nationally. The funding will support services to older adults and their caregivers by Aging Care Connections and our partners, Rush University Medical Center, Jewish Social Service Agency in Montgomery County, Maryland, and Kenneth Young Center in Illinois.

Aging Care Connections and Rush are leaders in Chicago and across the nation in implementing evidence-based, social work-led care models to support vulnerable older adults and their families. By supporting older adults and caregivers throughout the continuum of care—at hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, primary care offices, and their homes—we are able to utilize the “medical home” concept. The Bridge Model, developed by Rush and Aging Care Connections, is an interdisciplinary person-centered care intervention that supports older adults to ensure a safe and healthy transition from the hospital back to their homes and communities. Bridge is the only recognized dementia-friendly evidence-based transitional care model.
