DuPage Senior Citizens Councilhttps://www.dupageseniorcouncil.org
The DuPage Senior Citizens Council initiates, delivers, monitors, and coordinates services that promote the ability of older persons to live their lives in dignity. Growing older can bring obstacles that, for many seniors, can make daily life challenging. To ease those challenges, DSCC touches the lives of seniors in both their homes and in their communities. In-Home Services include: daily delivery of nutritional meals to the homebound, widely known as Meals on Wheels; our daily Well Being Check Program that provides health and safety checks to seniors by volunteers during their meal deliveries; and the Minor Home Repair Program that helps make it possible for older individuals to remain in their homes by assisting with basic home maintenance. Community Services include: the operation of our network of county-wide Community Dining sites that serve seniors a nutritious meal, along with an opportunity to socialize with other seniors in a friendly setting; our Health & Wellness Program in which seniors receive informative dietary and health-related educational materials prepared by experts; and Chore Days, a popular program partnering seniors, individual volunteers and those from schools and local civic organizations. Together, Chore Days partners brighten homes and neighborhoods by helping with outside chores such as raking leaves, gardening, trimming shrubs, and other yard tasks.
