HAPPY HOLIDAYS FROM EAST CENTRAL ILLINOIS AREA AGENCY ON AGING, INC.

The holidays are a time when family and friends get together to celebrate.  This is also the time of year when our agency receives an influx of calls from family members worried about loved ones they have visited.  This months special feature will focus on helpful information for families and seniors.  As we notice changes in our loved ones, the first thing we like to do is research and be prepared.  Hopefully, this information will be benefial for any questions you may have.
