AgeOptions, the Area Agency on Aging of Suburban Cook County, is committed to improving the quality of life and maintaining the dignity of older adults and those who care about them - through leadership and support, community partnerships, comprehensive services, accurate information and powerful advocacy.
AgeOptions (www.ageoptions.org) is a not-for-profit organization located in Oak Park, Illinois, that has served the older adults of suburban Cook County and their families as an Area Agency on Aging since 1974. As part of the nationwide network, we are authorized by the federal Older Americans Act and the Illinois Department on Aging as the Planning and Service Area for the 30 townships surrounding Chicago.
AgeOptions is governed by a Board of Directors, whose responsibilities include setting our direction, establishing policies, and managing and allocating resources. Using proven methods of research and planning, AgeOptions is entrusted with distributing funds to a network of organizations that serve older adults and their families. Our Advisory Council consists of a group of older adults who represent and link us to the communities in our service area. Our executive and management team, whose combined experience in the field of aging exceeds 120 years, are responsible for the implementation of strategic plans and day-to-day operations.
