Mission Statement

WiseUp provides support and connections to each other as they age, so that they can remain active, vital, and contributing members of our communities.

Description

WiseUp is the local face of a national movement: a consumer-driven model helping older adults stay in their homes as they age. In communities across the country, independent-minded adults have joined together to form organizations-typically called "Villages"-that help them to realize this goal. Today there are about 200 Villages nationwide, with dozens more on the horizon.

WiseUp, founded by Evanston residents, is modeled on one of the most successful of these communities, Boston's Beacon Hill Village. WiseUp has expanded to include the surrounding communities of Chicago, Skokie, Wilmette, Winnetka, Glenview, and Northbrook.
