“The designation of Senior Services of Will County as the Adult Protective Services Provider is a transition of services from the current provider, Guardian Angel Community Services.” Marla Fronczak, Chief Executive Officer of AgeGuide Northeastern Illinois said, “Senior Services of Will County is an established and trusted provider of older adult services in the community. We are confident this will be a seamless transition.”
