Why? The Kansas Department for Aging and Disability Services (KDADS) OAA Program works in collaboration with the eleven Area Agencies on Aging (AAAs) to support independence for Kansas seniors and help them remain in their homes for as long as possible. The listening tour will provide the opportunity for seniors to share their suggestions, needs, comments and feedback regarding OAA services. Your participation is invaluable and will be used to develop the upcoming State Plan on Aging.
