Lifescape Community Services is northwestern Illinois' top resource for keeping older adults nutritionally healthy, independent, connected and informed.

In Winnebago, Boone, Ogle and Lee Counties 

Lifescape IS Meals on Wheels.  

On a daily basis, we contribute to the nutritional need of older adults in Winnebago, Boone, Ogle and Lee counties. However, the number of seniors experiencing hunger and receiving inadequate nutrition is growing.  

The National Foundation to End Senior Hunger released a report on the growth of senior hunger in the United States that revealed some troubling new numbers. Learn more about how you can stem the tide of senior hunger here!

Lifescape Serves Northwestern Illinois

from our Office in Sterling

In 2016 the Illinois Department on Aging selected Lifescape Community Services to serve as the designated Care Coordination Unit and Adult Protective Services Agency for Whiteside, Lee, Carroll, and Ogle Counties.

Comprehensive Care Coordination

Lifescape Community Services promotes independent living for older adults by helping them obtain the most appropriate care for their specific needs. At the center of Comprehensive Care Coordination is a careful assessment of each participant’s needs and eligibility for various programs. From this assessment Lifescape Community Services develops a plan of care and arranges for services that may include: 

  • Monitoring
  • Referrals & advocacy
  • Comprehensive case management
  • Assistance in obtaining an in-home caregiver
  • Assistance with in-home emergency response systems
  • Funding and assistance to enable participants residing in long-term facilities to return to the community with support services
  • Choices for Care screening

Adult Protective Services

Lifescape Community Services assists adults who are victims of abuse, neglect, and exploitation (adults 60 years of age and older, or adults 18-59 years of age living with a disability). Abuse includes any negligent act by a caregiver or any other person who causes harm or serious risk of harm to a vulnerable adult. Types of reportable abuse include: physical, emotional, sexual, passive neglect, deprivation, confinement, and financial exploitation.

  • Lifescape Community Services at 1-815-490-1125 during business hours.
  • Illinois Department on Aging Adult Protective Services hotline at 1-866-800-1409. The hotline is available 24-hours a day.
