Support for people who are experiencing social isolation

The Illinois Department on Aging (IDoA) and the Illinois Department of Human Services (IDHS) received funding through the CARES Act from the Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Community Living to provide services to older adults and persons with disabilities who are socially isolated as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Illinois Care Connections will provide technology devices such as iPads or Tablets to participants to help facilitate social connections with family and friends on a first come first serve basis.

Participants receiving services through IDoA, IDHS-DD and IDHS-DRS providers and programs are eligible if they have been socially isolated as a result of the Coronavirus and are experiencing loneliness and a lack of connectedness.  Please contact Progress Center for more information.
