Seniors will be able to visit the center in the day.

Plans to build a new adult care center in Schaumburg, Illinois have been approved.

The facility is set to be constructed at an empty site at 611 Remington Road following the Schaumburg Village Board’s support of the proposals.

Seniors aged 60 and above will be able to use the Center for Seniors, which will be open between 8am and 2pm. Up to 60 people will be catered for and facility users will also be provided with transportation.

Exercise classes will be offered in addition to meals and other social events.

Julie Summers Fitzgerald, director of community development for the village, said: “With our aging population there’s certainly a need for these kinds of facilities.”

Young Ha, project coordinato, said: ”So many senior citizens needed this service and our other locations were too far away, so we needed a closer center for them. Some of these people cannot live alone and when their children go to work, this gives them peace of mind that their parents are safe and happy. It keeps them out of the nursing home a little longer and keeps them in the community instead of being institutionalized.”
