AgeOptions innovates, partners, and advocates to improve systems and services in order to strengthen communities so people thrive as they age.
People thriving as they age
What We DoAgeOptions is the Area Agency on Aging for Suburban Cook County (the "inner-ring" suburbs of Chicago). As the Area Agency, we administrate a number of important services that help protect older adults (defined as anyone over 60+) and allow them to age with dignity. We also provide supports for people with disabilities and unpaid caregivers. A majority of our funding is from government sources, including grants under the Older Americans Act; we are also a grant maker, partnering with over 70 local agencies to fund the aging services network for suburban Cook County.
AgeOptions has a number of different service lines; the one using Catchafire is Thrive with Pride, our LGBT+ programming and outreach. Our organization has a wonderful, but overworked, marketing team, so we're here to leverage your volunteer skills to help improve our services and messaging!
