Review for Barrington Area Council on Aging, Inc., Barrington, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

BACOA is an extraordinary organization which provides services to seniors and caregivers across the community regardless of financial need. Meals with Wheels, Caregiver Support groups, Income Tax and Medicare Part D assistance are all available. In addition their Social Services staff support families and seniors to ensure an enhanced aging experience.

Beyond this, the organization is well-run financially. They are always aware of their responsibility to the community. In the most recent economic downturn they pulled in their belts, created a more financially streamlined operation and had an outstanding year financially, demonstrating that their fiscal responsibility is well-recognized across the community.
