Aging Well, a program of Aging Care Connections, is dedicated to working with communities to create an environment in which people can age well. Serving 20 communities in the Lyons, Riverside, and south Proviso Township areas, the program is composed of hundreds of older adults and more than 130 community based organizations working together to create an environment in which people can age well.
