Given the ongoing heath concerns with COVID-19, CRIS Healthy-Aging Center will be providing “Wellness Kits” to older adults 60 and older and their caregivers in Champaign County.  These kits include various items that will aid in comforting someone who is ill as well as preventing the spreading of germs.


These kits may include: Soup packets, crackers, disinfectant wipes, tea bags, tissues, menthol rub, sugar-free cough drops, soap, and more.


To qualify for a Wellness Kit, one must be over the age of 60 or caring for someone 60 or older.


CRIS is also offering these Wellness Kits to grandparents age 55+ raising grandchildren.


These Wellness Kits are only available while supplies last.  Kits may vary as supplies are more or less available.


Register for your Wellness Kit by calling 217.355.1543 or email info@agestrong.org. 


Registration will be done by phone or walk-in registrations are welcome on Thursday, March 19th, and Friday, March 20th, 8am – 4pm at CRIS Healthy-Aging Center, 1606 Willow View Road, Suite 1E, Urbana, IL 61802.


CRIS Healthy-Aging Center is also planning to offer kits for Vermilion County residents in the future and will provide an update when these kits become available.
