PLOWS Council on Aging continues to operate remotely, conducting assessments and non-essential services over the phone. All events are taking place remotely and in-person events remain cancelled until further notice.

It is PLOWS Council on Aging’s priority to help ensure that clients, staff and volunteers remain healthy and well, while keeping to our commitment of providing quality human services to the community. We will continue to follow all health advisories as directed through resources such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, World Health Organization and the Illinois Department on Aging. In addition, we are maintaining ongoing communications with our community partners to ensure a collaborative approach to coordinated care. We will continue to remain flexible and respond accordingly as the situation evolves and encourage you to visit this website for more information.
