OSF Senior World understands the importance of providing education and support for family caregivers.

Senior World offers support group meetings at both locations in addition to educational opportunities throughout the year.
Billing and Insurance
Are there funding options?
OSF Senior World is committed to affordable care. We partner with the Illinois Community Care Program, the Department of Veterans Affairs, Managed Care Organizations, the Central Illinois Agency on Aging Respite program and long-term care insurance plans.
Many families pay privately because of the great value OSF Senior World offers for their loved ones compared to in-home care or institutionalization.
Our staff will gladly discuss costs and help you explore funding options if needed. Currently, no Medicare coverage is available for adult day services.
