Welcome to Lifescape Community Services. We are the largest agency in northwestern Illinois serving older adults, families and caregivers in Winnebago, Boone, Whireside, Carroll, Lee and Ogle counties. Whether a person needs a nutritious meal, help completing complicated paperwork, assistance in paying bills, a safe place to go during the day or wants to put their talents and skills to use by volunteering at a local nonprofit agency, Lifescape Community Services is the resource that can help meet that need.

Lifescape Community Services is northwestern Illinois' top resource for keeping older adults nutritionally healthy, independent, connected and informed.       




Lifescape In 2015:

  • Between Meals on Wheels and our senior dining sites, we provided 296,887 nutritious meals to seniors who cannot afford adequate nutrition. 
  • At Brightside Adult Day Service, we are getting a new lease on life! We have leased a new facility to house our older adults in a safe, secure and fresh environment, with our same focus on allowing caregivers to work or enjoy a much needed respite. Watch for updates on our Grand Opening in 2016!
  • Our health and wellness classes engaged nearly 1000 seniors enhancing quality of life in locations close to their homes.
  • We empowered Rockford area families headed by older adults through our Grandparents Raising Grandchildren program by providing furniture, school supplies, clothing, and additional resources.
  • Through our Information and Assistance department, we supported over 4,000 older adults with everything from Medicare signups to affordable heating and cooling for their homes, Benefit Access Program applications and more. 


In Winnebago, Boone, Ogle and Lee Counties 

Lifescape IS Meals on Wheels.  

On a daily basis, we contribute to the nutritional need of older adults in Winnebago, Boone, Ogle and Lee counties. However, the number of seniors experiencing hunger and receiving inadequate nutrition is growing.  

The National Foundation to End Senior Hunger released a report on the growth of senior hunger in the United States that revealed some troubling new numbers. Learn more about how you can stem the tide of senior hunger here!

  • Monitoring
  • Referrals & advocacy
  • Comprehensive case management
  • Assistance in obtaining an in-home caregiver
  • Assistance with in-home emergency response systems
  • Funding and assistance to enable participants residing in long-term facilities to return to the community with support services
  • Choices for Care screening
