City of Lights

Once a mid-sized manufacturing city, Aurora has grown since the 1960s. It is the second-largest city in Illinois, with nearly 200,000 residents. From 2000 to 2009, the U.S. Census Bureau ranked the city as the 46th fastest growing city with a population of over 100,000.

In 1908, Aurora adopted the nickname “City of Lights”, because in 1881, it was one of the first cities in the United States to implement an all-electric street lighting system. This is also appropriate since the word “aurora” means a natural electrical phenomenon characterized by the appearance of streamers of reddish or greenish light in the sky,

Aurora’s historic downtown is located on the Fox River, and is centered on Stolp Island. The city is on the edge of the Illinois Technology and Research Corridor. The city has a long tradition of manufacturing as does much of Chicago metropolitan area.

The Aurora area is an outstanding travel destination in the suburban Chicago area. Here you can experience Broadway musical theater, the largest waterpark in Illinois, Chicagoland’s largest outlet shopping center, and unparalleled outdoor adventure along the Fox River. Downtown Alive, a festival that includes live music and a variety of food booths, is held on three weekends in the summer.

Only 37 miles west of Chicago, Aurora is a great city with many amenities for seniors. Check out the Aurora Area Convention and Visitors Bureau.

Senior Issues We Can Handle

Your mom or dad will likely run into the typical problems of aging over time. Here are some of the most common issues with the elderly to be concerned with. Maybe you are experiencing them now. Hiring a dependable caregiver is the smart thing to do, and your senior will thank you for it.

Are you searching for a quality Aurora home care company? Destiny can help with all of these problems:

Falls: This is one of the most common problems among seniors. They fall and they cannot get up, even to make a phone call.

Leaving the stove on: This danger is obvious. Your senior might forget that the stove is turned on. A smoke alarm helps, but that might not be enough.

Slipping in the shower or bath: This is a type of fall that can have devastating consequences. A bathtub grab bar is a good idea.

Loneliness: Spending hours in the home alone can make your senior lonely and in need of companionship. A friendly face that shows up every day is a great benefit.

Depression: This is a common problem among seniors living alone. They lack friends as well as the responsibilities of looking after others. Thus they become self-absorbed.

If mom is getting on in years, make sure she gets help!
