Home Health Care Aids

Updated:

The Illinois Department of Aging held its annual luncheon Thursday afternoon at the Governor's Mansion.

The special event recognized those who work tirelessly to help seniors who cannot always help themselves.

The Department of Aging provides homecare for seniors who need assistance to remain in their home and out of nursing homes.

On the minds of many of those in attendance: the state budget.

Association members say they hope the Governor's budget passes because they do not want to see more cuts to their already low-funded programs.

"We are seeing more and more people coming into the program and there is a lot of need out there and it's a challenge for us to make sure that we have good homecare aids going into the home providing good service."

Of the nearly 85 people in attendence were 5 award winners and 10 individuals who received honorable mentions.
