When Mrs. Santosh Kumar migrated to America in 1985, she was amazed to see how much America had to offer. However, she was shocked to see there were elderly being neglected. Mrs. Kumar knew something had to be done about this. Immigrant families were having a tough time taking care of their elderly. They were working full-time, looking after their children, all while attempting to assimilate to the American culture. There was no outlet for these ethnic populations when it came to homecare. The Homecare industry in Chicagoland was not understanding of the cultural aspects/ needs of the immigrant populations for it to be truly effective. Mrs. Kumar knew she could not see the South Asian elderly in her community suffer the way that they were, so she set out on a mission to make a difference in their lives by applying for the Homecare Program from the State of Illinois. She was contracted by the State in 1993 but didn’t stop there. She added Public Benefits, Social Services, Nutrition Programs, Educational & Health Research shortly after that. In 2006, she started Adult Day Care Services to transport seniors that were neglected when their children went to work. Homecare grew to 12 locations and Adult Day Care is currently offered at 6 centers.
