SERVICES TO OLDER ADULTS

Lessie Bates Davis Neighborhood House provides Services to Older Adults in three primary areas:

ADULT DAY CARE SERVICES

Temporarily Suspended

The Adult Day Services Program provides direct care for those who cannot be left unattended during the day, those in need of a protective environment and those which are physically and/or psychosocially disabled. Daily meals are provided as well as daily health assessments. Participants take part in a variety of activities such as day trips, arts and crafts, games, social interaction, and much more. The program also takes clients from the Department of Rehab who are 18 to 59. The program currently serves more than 30 participants.

HOMEMAKER PROGRAM

Temporarily Suspended

The Services to Older Adults Program provides homemaker services to over 400 elderly residents in East St. Louis, St. Clair and Madison counties each year. The homemakers provide cooking, cleaning and personal care to elderly persons 60 years of age and older who are blind, handicapped or disabled. In addition, the homemakers provide escort services to the doctor, grocery store or other important appointments. This service enables elderly residents to remain in their own homes near family and friends and often prevents unnecessary institutionalization. Serves more than 400 low-income elderly persons.


  • Funded by Illinois Department on Aging. Located at 1200 N 13th Street.
