Thrive with Pride by AgeOptions

Thrive with Pride is a project of AgeOptions, the Area Agency on Aging for Suburban Cook County. This program provides an inclusive, online space for LGBT+ older adults and those who care for them. We host free, monthly online events with expert presentations on topics of interest followed by discussion. Our local partner sites facilitate their own follow-up cafés, providing a safe and welcoming space for LGBT+ older adults and caregivers to congregate.


 As the Area Agency on Aging of suburban Cook County, Illinois, we advocate, plan, coordinate and fund services for older adults. Together with a network of community-based senior service organizations, we connect residents with vital services such as information and assistance, community dining programs and home-delivered meals, housekeeping help, employment services, access to benefits and support for family caregivers.
