The Senior Advocate can help clients who want to know more about a benefit or service, and need help applying for benefits. The Senior Advocate is also available to give presentations to groups of seniors, caregivers, and others who are interested in learning about the benefits and services available to seniors in suburban Cook County.
Information and Assistance - Before older people can consider what services best fit their particular needs, they need to know as much as possible about those services. Starting with a phone call or a visit to the Office on Aging, an older person can receive information on a wide range of local, state, and federal programs.
Benefit Enrollment – schedule an appointment with our Senior Advocate to review what benefits you may be eligible for and receive assistance in completing the applications.
Options Counseling - provides seniors over 60 and people with disabilities over 18 with the information they need on long-term services and supports regardless of disability or income. Stickney Township’s Options Counselor is trained to work with you, family members and/or significant others to connect you to vital resources and services that fit your current situation and preferences and allows you to control the planning process.
