Nebraska to continue providing aging resource centers

Jul 3, 2018

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Nebraskans with disabilities and those who are at least 60 years old can continue to receive services through a state program made permanent by Gov. Pete Ricketts.

The Aging and Disability Resource Centers were part of a 2016 pilot program that was overseen by the Department of Health and Human Services. They're designed to help people with disabilities gain access to a variety of long-term care services while also working with families and caretakers. The decision to make them permanent was announced Monday.

The centers include counselors who provide unbiased information that is relevant to each person's specific needs and preferences.

More information is available at http://nebraska.networkofcare.org/aging/ or by calling 1-844-843-6364. Offices are located in Lincoln, Omaha, Beatrice, Norfolk, Hastings, Kearney and Scottsbluff.
