About AgeOptions

AgeOptions is a nonprofit organization connecting older adults and those who care for them with resources and service options so they can live their lives to the fullest. Since 1974, our mission has been to sustain and promote independence for older persons in their own homes and communities.

Our Role in the Community

AgeOptions creates and sustains a variety of innovative programs that respond to the rich diversity of our communities and older adults. We serve a diverse population of more than 480,000 older adults in 130 communities, providing leadership and support to programs that respond to the needs of older persons.

AgeOptions is designated by the federal Older Americans Act and the Illinois Department on Aging as the planning and service agency for the 30 townships surrounding Chicago – home to more than 2.5 million people. Our responsibilities include funding and programming for the 130 communities in suburban Cook County.

We administer more than $15 million annually in federal and state funds. More than 88 percent of resources support services through grants to more than 60 community-based senior service organizations such as councils on aging, townships and senior centers. We also receive and administer grants for special programs from organizations across the country.

With our partner agencies in the community, we anticipate assisting more than 200,000 people every year with a variety of information and programming, including one-on-one services and support to media, students, academic institutions, local government and the general public.
