June 15 Update on Center Reopening

June 15, 2020

Dear Friends & Supporters,


I am delighted to announce that starting Monday, July 6, we will begin offering a limited number of onsite Lifelong Learning programs and activities to complement the many classes that will continue online.


We are ecstatic to welcome you back to the Center and want you to know ahead of time that things will be a little different than you remember. Because your health and the health of our staff are of upmost importance, programs and activities will be limited to a maximum of 10 people in a room. Advanced registration will be required, and walk-ins will not be permitted in this initial phase of re-opening. Guests will be screened at the south entrance, and face coverings will be required at all times while inside the building. Spaces have been reconfigured to allow physical distancing and other building preparations will continue as we plan for this soft re-opening. We will make modifications as needed to comply with Governor Pritzker's Restore Illinois plan. 


All other programs through Senior & Family Services, House of Welcome Adult Day Services and Senior Options will operate virtually until further notice. We will continue to rely on the Centers for Disease Control, the Illinois Department of Public Health and the Illinois Department on Aging for guidance on when in-person visits and gatherings with those we serve through these programs can resume.


My hope is that this is just step one in a graduated approach to restarting our programs and services in person, but please know that the situation is fluid and we may need to make adjustments to our plans. Watch for more detailed information in the July e-newsletter.


Registration for July-August onsite Lifelong Learning programming will begin Monday, June 29 at 9 a.m. and can be done over the phone by calling 847.784.6030 or online.


Looking forward to seeing you soon,


Tish Rudnicki, MSW

Executive Director
