Long Term Care
Long term care involves more than just nursing homes. It also includes assisted living facilities, homes plus and even in-home services.
In addition to providing information about the various kinds of long term care, the Kansas Department for Aging and Disability Services (KDADS) is also involved with helping seniors determine the best arrangement for meeting their needs through the CARE program. KDADS is involved with the licensing and surveying of long term care facilities and its costs. The agency also encourages facilities to adopt more resident-centered care through its PEAK program.
