Pathlights keeps you informed. Our services continue and we are available at 708.361.0219
OUR MISSION, VISION, AND VALUES REMAIN CONSTANT
During the Pandemic, Pathlights has continued all services without interruption and we've added several new intiatives to respond to community needs. Our team is working remotely and we'll provide updates here if any significant changes are made to programs, services, or operations.
Our priority is 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 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. And, we maintain ongoing communications with our community partners to ensure a collaborative approach to coordinated care.

When the pandemic began, Pathlights was one of the first to quickly organize a local healthcare event with a leading infectious disease expert to inform and educate the community about the virus and its impact on the aging community. Since March 2020, we've hosted four presentations featuring the latest news and updates from Dr. Michael Ison, Professor, Divisions of Infectious Diseases and Organ Transplantation, Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. Here is the latest presentation: March 9, 2021
It takes a village, a state, and a country. Here are some of the organizations that we've been partnering with to make sure older adults, adults with disabilities, their caregivers, and friends, have information about COVID-19, the importance of vaccinations for flu and COVID-19, and preventative measures to maintain a healthy bubble.
