Eldercare Options is a program that assesses, counsels, and determines the need for guardianship for disabled elderly adults who are no longer able to make sound judgments on their own. When someone can no longer manage his or her personal affairs, finances, or health care, our staff will coordinate with physicians and attorneys and then will secure an appropriate decision maker and testify in court as to the need of a guardian. We also offer alternative services to guardianship, such as Power of Attorneys and referrals to other agencies, and information and education about guardianship to families. For additional information on the Eldercare Options Program, please contact 217-428-3458. Hours are Monday - Friday from 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
