Welcome St. Louis Metro East Care Council
 

ILCPCThe members of our council represent a wealth of information, knowledge and advice to help you with eldercare issues or generally with any issues that aging seniors face. We have "been there and done that" many times, not only with our own loved ones but on countless occasions with members of our community. We assist individuals in the community who can't seem to find what they are looking for even after numerous phone calls and exhaustive internet searches. Through our experience we have developed a well-deserved motto; which is "Difficult Problems – Clear Solutions."

Perhaps you are looking for sources of funds to help you pay for unforeseen expenses, or for help with veterans benefits, or understanding services provided by Medicare and Medicaid. Maybe you need someone to assist you in the home or provide maintenance or yard care or maybe you need advice on finding a long term care community for you or a loved one. Maybe you need legal work, or financial planning or home care services or tax advice or advice on dealing with other members of the family in a caregiving situation. We can provide all of that and much more.

You can either attend one of our many educational workshops in the community or you can call us or email us for free advice or assistance. We operate as a one-stop shopping service for assisting the elderly of Illinois. We want to help you in any way we can. Please feel free to contact us.

Legal arrangements and protective actions by family may be necessary to shield loved ones from abuse.

Making legal decisions about property, finances, power of attorney, and last rights are important tasks to complete in planning for long term care. Having provided the legal arrangements, assets, and who will be designated to be responsible for the welfare of the aging loved ones can avoid family disputes, abuse of needs and finances, and preservation of assets.
