In early 2016, in an effort to integrate services and to create a “no wrong door” for family caregivers, a group of Lake County not-for-profits created an informal network to inform ourselves, Lake County caregivers, and other concerned residents and organizations about our respective support services.
Group members include the Alzheimer’s Association (Greater Illinois Chapter), Aurora Health, Catholic Charities (Senior Services), ElderCARE of Lake County, Erie Family Health, ExtraCare… for families living with Alzheimer’s, Faith in Action, Family Service of Lake County, Hanul Alliance, JourneyCare, Lake County Center for Independent Living, Lake County Veterans Assistance Commission, Lake County Veterans Foundation, Lessons in Care L3C, National Multiple Sclerosis Society, National Parkinson’s Foundation, Northeastern Illinois Area Agency on Aging, Prairie State Legal Services, Rosalind Franklin University, Shiloh Baptist Church, Zion Caring Community, and Waukegan Township Senior Services.
The informal organization is led Chris Damon of Lessons In Care, Linda Magad of Family Service of Lake County, and Pam Rosentreter of the Lovell Federal Healthcare Center.
Our Mission: The Lake County CaregiverNet is dedicated to improving the lives of Caregivers (Family, Friends, Neighbors) in the community by linking them with resources, support, and each other.
Our Goals: Information Sharing, Caregiver Support, Resources, Legislation/Advocacy, Education, and Gap Analysis. The Lake County CaregiverNet brings organizations together through quarterly meetings, group email blasts, and social media (Twitter and Facebook; handle, LCCaregivernet). It informs the public via a vastly increased presence of caregiving organizations on the Find Help Lake County (United Way) website.
