As of Oct. 1, the Bureau County Senior Center will officially become the Bureau County Aging and Disability Resource Center.
Ihrig said Tuesday the name change was requested by the Illinois Department on Aging, both to reflect who the center serves and as part of an organizational change.
The Western Illinois Area Agency on Aging, which provides a large percentage of the funding for the center, includes 13 senior centers, and Ihrig said four centers Bureau County, Putnam County Achievement Services in Standard, Bridges Community Center in Ottawa and the Mendota Area Senior Services are being put together in a sub-group to better serve area residents.
Ihrig said they will be working more closely with other agencies in the area such as the Illinois Valley Center for Independent Living, the Illinois Department of Human Services and its Division of Rehabilitation Services.
Ihrig said the intent is to include people with disabilities in its range of clients, but that is something the Bureau County Senior Center has been doing for quite awhile.
The Coneflower Farms and Plow Creeks vendors are the two approved vendors for the vouchers, Ihrig said.
The vouchers will be income-based for seniors, and seniors will need to bring a proof of income to verify their income, Ihrig said.
Each voucher booklet contains seven, $3 vouchers which can be used all at one time or separately.
However, no change will be given,
