Ensuring older adults and people with disabilities maintain their independence
and dignity through cost effective community services.
Eleven Area Agencies on Aging and the Aging and Disability Resource Centers in Kansas.
All Kansans have dignity, health, independence, and enduring self-sufficiency.
The AAAs partner with public and private enterprises throughout Kansas, the region, and the nation to support the delivery of accessible, quality-driven services to healthy lifestyles and support self-sufficiency.
We advocate for older Kansans to remain active, independent, and free from abuse and neglect. The association is a strong voice for the creation of new and effective resources to meet the needs of older adults, persons with disabilities, and their caregivers. K4ad monitors legislation on the state and federal levels and provides testimony on various priorities.
Working through local Area Agencies on Aging, k4ad supports a single, highly accessible point of entry for older Kansans and persons with disabilities seeking help in maintaining their health, independence, and dignity.
