Marks Hand in Hand with Our Seniors, Family Service of Glencoe’s new senior program, will be led by intern Cortney Marks and overseen by Family Service of Glencoe therapist Chuck Hutchcraft. Marks is a graduate student at Loyola University working to complete a master’s degree in social work. Al Ross, one of her Loyola professors, is the clinical director at Family Service of Glencoe. Given her previous experience working with seniors, Ross suggested she come on to participate in the new initiative led by Hutchcraft. “We have the belief that older people should have the opportunity to fully participate in all aspects of society and community life, while at the same time being able to maintain health, independence, and living in their own home in the comfort of their own community,” Marks said. In the new initiative, Marks will conduct oneon-one interviews — typically lasting an hour — with seniors in the village beginning in February and throughout the summer as needed. One-on-one interviews may take place in a resident’s home or at a public space in Glencoe. Marks said they’ve started scheduling interviews for the week of Monday, Feb. 20. “I’d like to structure the interviews to get an idea of what [seniors’] life is like today, what it was like back then when they first moved to the area, what things did they have then that they don’t have now, or vice versa,” Marks said. “We really just want to get a sense of what the environment is like for them today.” In 2014, Family Service of Glencoe’s centennial year, a community needs assessment was conducted to examine community strengths and opportunity areas. The organization collected direct feedback on the emotional health and well-being of residents in order to evaluate programs, determine areas of need and opportunity. Survey respondents addressed senior issues, in particular, with 51 percent of respondents indicating that care and support for the elderly would improve quality of life in Glencoe and 40 percent of respondents indicating that additional housing opportunities for seniors would improve the quality of life in Glencoe. Family Service of Glencoe plans to use the information gleaned from the interviews to develop programming that will “ensure the comfort and safety of all villagers throughout their lifespan,” according to a Family Service of Glencoe release.
