A Caring TouchA Caring Touch
A Caring Touch of McLean County, Inc. opened its doors in February 1992 to help fill a void in the McLean County community. Many people, primarily senior citizens, needed assistance in leading comfortable lives in their own homes. Their children, a “Sandwich Generation” overwhelmed by the life concerns of both their children and parents, needed a place to turn for help.
