HOME CARE PROGRAM
Supported by Illinois Department on Aging(IDOA)'s Community Care Program, Hanul’s in-home service was implemented in 1989 in order to provide needed assistance to homebound Korean elderly. It helps older adults with household tasks which allow them to obtain physical and psychological well-being and keep them out of a nursing home, if not necessary. The ultimate purpose for this service is to improve qualities of life by cherishing dignity and maintaining independency.
