November 16, 2011

McLean County senior citizens who might not be able to care for themselves will soon have access to new support resources, thanks to a grant from the Retirement Research Foundation.

Karen Zangerle, director of Providing Access to Help (PATH) and the local 211 hotline, told WJBC on Monday she just received news of the funding.

“We’ll get $50,000 starting in January to help with self-neglect cases among seniors,” she said.
