A message to Care Partners clients, partners and friends

Care Partners is evolving to help protect our clients, volunteers and staff and respond to the need for seniors to stay safely at home. Care Partners’ office is no longer open to the public. Staff are working remotely, and will return your calls and emails during regular office hours:  M-F, 10 am to 3 pm.  

Telephone Support:  Care Partners staff and volunteers will no longer provide in-person visits, but will focus on using phones, and other means to stay in close contact. Let us know if you would like a volunteer to touch base and provide a friendly phone visit. 

Rides: will be carefully monitored. For now, we will provide rides only to important medical appointments after careful screening questions to make sure all involved are healthy and have limited exposure.

Delivering Supplies:  Care Partners volunteers will assist as possible with delivering supplies to high risk individuals who need to stay safely at home.

Shopping Assistance: A Care Partners volunteer can help you develop and organize your grocery list, place your grocery order, arrange for delivery of your groceries, or assist you in picking them up.  Click here to submit a request for more information.

Outdoor Chores: Although we are not able to help with indoor chores, volunteers can assist with yard clean-up, winter preparation, and occasional snow removal. If you are interested in assistance with outdoor chores, give us a call or click here.

Please call Care Partners at 387-3788 or email us at carepartners@boreal.org if you have any questions, needs or concerns. We appreciate each one of you and are grateful to be part of a strong and caring community.

COVID Information: We’ve added a “COVID” category to our resources page.  Click on “Resources” at the top of this page (or click here) for a listing of COVID-related information, programs, and services for older adults in Cook County.  Let us know if you see something there that needs to be removed or if you know of a resource that we may want to add.
