The Kentucky Post is reporting that the Kentucky Department for Aging and Independent Living (DAIL) will receive more than $2.3 million in federal grants to help seniors, individuals with disabilities and caregivers better understand and navigate their health and long-term care options.
“Our aging population is growing rapidly, and we must continue to look for opportunities to support Kentucky’s most vulnerable citizens,” said Bill Cooper, deputy commissioner of DAIL (and Harmony customer). “Grants like these allow us to broaden our reach in meeting the unique needs of our aging and disabled populations and those of their families and caregivers.”
The total funding, to benefit a range of programs, comes from three separate grant awards:
* Alzheimer’s Disease Supportive Services Evidence Based Program grant.
* Medicare Improvements for Patients and Providers Act grant (MIPPA).
* Aging and Disability Resource Center (ADRC) Nursing Home Transition and Diversion Programs grant.
The grants were made possible by the United States Department for Health and Human Services under the Affordable Care Act.
