(Cicero, Illinois) — Over the years, word has gotten out about how much the Town of Cicero does for its senior citizens.

Most seniors have a tough time, not just because of their age but because of their retirement and leaving the workforce. Their income is limited. As time goes on, what started out as a decent retirement paycheck, either through a work pension plan or through just Social Security, has become inadequate.

The increases don’t keep up with the reality of the “cost of living” which continues to increase.

That’s one reason why the Town of Cicero offers its Senior Citizens programs and support that you will not find in most other communities not just in Illinois but across the country.

In Cicero, an individual is recognized as a senior citizen when they reach the age of 62. In some cases, services begin at age 55.

These are some of the services Cicero offers its Senior Community:

  • Snow shoveling of property sidewalks and driveways lawn upkeep services including mowing, handyman services, repairing everyday problems such as plumbing, minor heating and air conditioning and carpentry
  • Grants for home improvements of up to $500
  • free daily transportation (to locations inside and outside Cicero) including pick-up from their homes not only to Cicero sponsored events, but to their doctor’s office, the grocery store, and shopping
  • daily and weekly activities where seniors can socialize with other seniors including trips to casinos, plays, movies, shopping trips,
  • Town hosted luncheons for holidays including St. Patrick’s Day
  • Two specialized Senior Departments: Senior Services to address senior needs, and Senior Activities to provide a full schedule of events and programs
  • Free participation for seniors in the town’s frequent employment and job fairs to assist seniors in supplementing their retirement income
  • We offer Free continuing education seminars and classes at our new Community Center.
