The Boone County Council on Aging is a service provider for the Community Care Program and is overseen by the Illinois Department on Aging.
What Is the Community Care Program
In-Home Care provided by the Boone County Council on Aging offers Home Care Assistants to enable older persons to remain in their own homes. Some older adults need extra help with cleaning, shopping, laundry, personal care, and/or meal preparation in order to stay in their homes. It is important to know that this is an assistance program designed to keep seniors active but giving extra help as needed. The Community Care Program does not provide medical care. There is no cost for the program. The Visiting Nurses Association determines eligibility for this program.
