A Program Dedicated to Helping Seniors Age With Dignity
Advocate Lutheran General Hospital established the Older Adult Services program in 1980. Our Medical Model Adult Day Service is considered among the pioneers of Adult Day Care, and its design has been replicated both regionally and nationally.
The mission of the Older Adult Services program is to enrich the quality of life of the elderly through a full range of services that respond to the needs and desires of each individual across the aging continuum.
Older Adult Services includes:
Most recently in 2012, Older Adult Services established Expressions, an early-stage memory loss program for people who have recently been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. This new addition to Older Adult Services fulfilled a much needed resource for our communities. In addition, we have support groups and Supper Clubs to support family members and caregivers.
Each year we have over 13,000 visits to our programs, 8,000 meals brought to isolated elderly in their homes, 6,000 phone calls asking for help and resources and 10,000 Senior Advocate members.
Like our hospitals, we are a teaching facility. Older Adult Services is fortunate to have many interns and students represented in all our programs.
We are here for our communities—assisting the elderly by offering the best programs and resources, keeping them healthy, safe and enjoying life.
