FROM OUR PRESIDENT CONNIE COFFMAN:

Again, greetings from Concord Village Acute Rehab Center! Over eight weeks have passed and some days have been a real challenge! The staff members here are wonderful helping me through physical therapy and my adjustment being away from my home so long. There have been some bumps in my road to recovery that have been very challenging!

I know that as soon as my surgeon gives me the okay to put 100% pressure on my left hip, the two things I will concentrate on is conquering three steps and entering and exiting our car!!

I have appreciated your good wishes and prayers more than you can image. Hopefully, I will be home to enjoy being outdoors and “back to being active again” soon!

More than ever I cannot stress the importance of staying active and exercising regularly to keep your body strong. Physical therapy has been rigorous, but rewarding, and it will continue as part of my daily routine when I get home.

A Note From Chris:

In 1992, Lake County voters approved a half-mill levy to fund senior services across the county. The voters have renewed that levy every five years, and recognize the importance of the services we can provide with the levy funding. Today, these include home-delivered and congregate meals, social work and homemaker services, programs at senior centers across Lake County, home maintenance and modification projects, and much more.

However, we face two big challenges in maintaining these programs. Federal funding for senior services continues to decline and is now lower than 2008 levels. Plus, the demand for senior services here in Lake County is growing rapidly. The percentage of Lake County residents over 60 will increase from 22% to 34% by 2030.  As Lake County ages, chronic disease, disability, elder abuse and neglect, accessible & affordable housing, poverty, isolation and inadequate nutrition will present growing challenges.

To make up for the major funding gaps and growing needs, we are placing an issue on the November ballot to renew and slightly increase the existing levy. The issue would be an increase of just 87 cents per month (per $100,000 home value). Without it, we risk having to drastically reduce the services that thousands of our oldest and most vulnerable elderly citizens count on every day. We’re proud of what we’ve done thru levy funding so far, and hope we can continue to serve our amazing senior community.

Thank you to everyone for all the volunteering you do throughout the year. You make my job so much easier!
