From the brochure for AgeOptions: Over the past 30 years, AgeOptions has established a national reputation for meeting the needs, wants and expectations of older adults in suburban Cook County. We are recognized as a leader in developing and helping to deliver innovative community based resources and options to the evolving, diverse communities we serve.

Ms. Gerdes discussed issues of healthcare  for older adults under Medicare and The Affordable Care Act (Obamacare).  She distributed relevant literature (click here to view one of the brochures she provided) which are also available at the agency website.
