Intouch Adult Day Services to Stay Open, Thanks to Outside Company
Intouch Adult Day Services in Moline will keep its doors open after announcing it would close last week. Lutheran Social Services of Illinois has agreed to allow a Chicago-based home health care company to take over its services and leases.
Ron Ford is the CEO of "Help at Home."
Help at Home already has a home health care office in Moline. And the company will also take over for "In Touch" in other cities such as Freeport, Peoria, and Rockford.
Ford says you can't make a LOT of money providing adult day care, but it is a valuable business.
The budget stalemate in Illinois forced Lutheran Social Services to cut 750 jobs and suspend services for nearly five-thousand people across the state. Help at Home plans to hire the Moline center's 70 employees.
Ford says the transition may be complete by the end of next month.
