Dept on Aging Gets New Director
The incoming director of the Illinois Department on Aging says her immediate goal will be to help older residents of the state live at home as long as possible. Jean Bohnhoff has been striving to do just that as director of the committee on aging for Effingham city and county in southern Illinois. Bohnhoff is from the rural village of Dieterich, just southeast of Effingham. She begins her new position in Gov. Bruce Rauner's administration February first, and calls it the ``opportunity of a lifetime.''
