Special Events

Elder Care Seminar: How to Choose a Place to Live - May 11, 9-10:30 a.m. in Fellowship Hall

It is a daunting task to figure out what kind of long term care to look for when you or a loved one can no longer live at home. Nursing home? Rehab? Assisted living? Sheltered care? Memory care? What do all these words mean? How much will it cost? And how do I pay for it? Amy McCracken, an attorney representing long term care companies, will give you the tools you need to figure it out. 

The first 30 people to register will receive a free book written by the Illinois Pioneer Coalition that will guide you through the selection process.
