The Illinois Department on Aging helps older adults live independently in their own homes and communities. As the population ages, services and programs for older adults must evolve as well because longevity means more when quality of life is enhanced. To best serve older adults, we must also serve their families and teach younger people about the realities of aging, so many of our programs have an intergenerational emphasis. Working with Area Agencies on Aging, community-based service providers and older adults themselves, the Illinois Department on Aging strives to improve quality of life for current and future generations of older Illinoisans.

    "You are never too old - or too young - to participate in activities that Connect, Create and Contribute to the enrichment of your physical, mental, and emotional well-being. I encourage our older adults to take advantage of resources and social programs throughout their communities - get out and play a key role in the vitality of our neighborhoods, networks, and lives!" - Paula Basta, Director of IDoA


"No one likes to talk about it, but it happens every day with alarming frequency. We all have the right to be treated with dignity and respect - to feel safe and secure. We want people to know there’s help available. If you are a victim, know or suspect someone who is being victimized, pick up the phone to get them some help. No one should have to go it alone" - Paula Basta, Director of IDoA
