For the month of February we will be hosting a presentation on “Home Health Services, what is it?”   Home health care helps seniors live independently for as long as possible, given the limits of their medical condition.   It covers a wide range of services and can often delay the need for long-term nursing-home care.

Ms. Susan Podas, representing Lexington Home Health will be explaining the following:

  • What is home health care?
  • How can you pay for home health care?
  • The difference between medical home health care and private duty health care.  
  • When is home health care appropriate?
  • What to expect?
  • Criteria and purpose of home health care.
  •  The difference between home health care and home care services.    

The Will County TRIAD for Senior Citizens is run by Sheriff Paul Kaupas and the Will County Sheriff’s Police.    TRIAD means a three-way commitment among local and county law enforcement and senior citizens.  They agree to work together to reduce the criminal victimization of the elderly and enhance the delivery of law enforcement services to older persons.    A major purpose of TRIAD is to develop, expand and implement effective crime prevention and education programs for senior citizens in our community. 

What and who is TRIAD of Will County and TRIAD of Manhattan-New Lenox? 

  • TRIAD is cooperation between law enforcement agencies and senior citizens.
  • TRIAD strives to reduce criminal victimization of older persons
  • TRIAD assesses the needs and concerns of older citizens.
  • TRIAD leads to a broad dialogue on safety and security issues
  • TRIAD is the link with elderly members of the community
