New Summer Issue of the Senior Life Enrichment Guide Now Available


The Summer issue of the Chicago Department of Family and Support Service’s Senior Life Enrichment Guide is now available at Alderman Reilly’s Constituent Service office, at the DFSS regional and satellite senior centers, libraries and many other locations.

The guide highlights programs and activities offered by the Chicago Department of Family and Support Services for Chicagoans ages “60 Years and Better” during the summer.  Inside, seniors will find information about health and wellness, educational, recreational and many other types of events, trips, classes and lectures, along with schedules and registration details.  Most of these are free or at a nominal cost.

This July is Elder Abuse Awareness Month, and this month’s guide includes a special insert on “Understanding Elder Abuse.”  It is estimated that millions of older Americans, from all walks of life, face abuse and neglect every year.  Anyone can be victimized.  The guide also has information on the upcoming Senior Fest 2017 at Millennium Park on Thursday, September 14th.

The contents of the Summer 2017 guide are also posted online:
