We firmly believe education helps everyone give and receive help. Supporting others has always been our goal here at Elderwerks. The fun we’ve had over the past 10 years makes us look forward to, with great anticipation, of what we can accomplish by the fall of 2023. (855) 462 0100 | Help@Elderwerks.org 251 E.

Northwest Highway | Palatine, IL 60067 www.Elderwerks.org Elderwerks Educational Services provides senior living coordination, advocacy, and education. We act as “senior guidance advisors” assisting those who ask for our advice. Our expert advisors help seniors make an informed decision whether it’s staying home or finding a new place to call home. Our team has been assisting families, just like yours, for years. There are many reasons to call Elderwerks: aging questions, concerns about a loved one, or peace of mind. We know from first-hand experience what it’s like to help a loved-one in crisis. Talking with your parents, grandparents, and extended family about aging and their preferences is extremely important. Knowing what to do should something happen will help everyone react appropriately and not emotionally. If you’re unsure where to start give us a call. Our Advisors are exceptional at helping others find solutions to their aging questions. Whether there is an immediate need or you’re in the planning stages, we can help.

(855) 462 0100 Elderwerks.org 12 Many Options There are many types of senior communities. Elderwerks knows all of the communities in Northern Illinois. After an initial conversation, we can assist you in finding one that is a good fit for your lifestyle. Senior communities have strict guidelines in place to ensure residents stay safe and healthy. Doctors, nurses, and therapists are available to meet with residents in person or via telehealth. Stay Safe and Healthy Maintenance-Free Living As we age, it can become difficult and overwhelming to continue to manage a house and keep up with all the cleaning and maintenance that is required. Senior communities will provide meals and take care of all cleaning and maintenance so you can spend time doing things you enjoy. Maximize Independence Living in a senior community will allow you to remain independent longer. You will have the autonomy to choose how you want to spend your time, make new friends, and enjoy your new lifestyle. Peace of Mind No more worrying about an emergency or needing help. Communities have staff available 24/7 to assist you. Socialization All of us are happier when we can socialize and have friendships. Social isolation may cause a decline in a senior's health. Senior communities offer a variety of activities and opportunities to socialize. Older adults may be hesitant to move from their familiar home and surroundings. What are the benefits of moving sooner rather than later? Why Should I Move? 855-462-0100 www.elderwerks.org Even if you're not ready to move yet, you can explore the options in your area. Contact Elderwerks for a complimentary consultation to plan for your future.
