Our OLA administration, staff, doctors, nurses, CNAs and residents would like to extend our sincere thank you to our wonderful OLA community and friends. Your donations, kind thoughts, supportive gestures and ongoing patience have been appreciated. We are continuing to care for our residents and monitor the day-to-day updates from the IDPH and CDC as this situation continues.
Looking ahead, we want to remain as prepared as possible for the likelihood of reduced supplies. We are asking you to help us ensure our supplies for cleaning and personal protective equipment (PPE) are sustained. If you can spare supplies, we have provided a list below of needed items. (Please note: We will not accept any food donations.)
We have set up a donation sign located inside the first sliding door of our main entrance where items can be dropped off.
Prayers to all of you. God bless!

According to the Alzheimer’s Association, “1 in 3 seniors dies with Alzheimer’s or another dementia and every 65 seconds, someone in the United States develops the disease.”
This year, a dedicated team from Our Lady of Angels Retirement Home has decided to join the fight against Alzheimer’s by participating in Will County’s annual Walk to End Alzheimer’s on Saturday, October 6th. OLA team members currently include Rebecca Reiter, Jake Ancel, Carolyn Krause Platt, John Ancel, Skylar Carter, Anita Lane, Paula Hargis, Jenny Guiney, Jodi Ancel, Stormy Reiter, Thomas Reiter, Veronica Turner and Ashley Vehrs.
The team has currently raised roughly $1,500 and hopes to meet a goal of $2,000 by October 6th. All funds go directly to Alzheimer’s care, support and research. If you would like to help Team OLA reach their goal, please consider donating here. You can donate directly to the team as a group or select which team member you’d like to support.
As the number of Americans living with Alzheimer’s grows each year, we need to be vigilant to spread awareness, support medical research and support those currently suffering from or caring for loved ones with the disease.
On behalf of our OLA community, we would like to wish all participants a successful walk this upcoming weekend!
