The Aging and Long Term Support Administration provides a broad range of services that assist individuals with a disability and seniors to live in a setting of their choice, usually their own homes or other community-based settings. Nursing facility care is available to those clients who prefer that option. The program also promotes and protects the rights, security, and well-being of individuals living in these settings and helps ensure that vulnerable adults are protected from abuse and neglect. These services are designed to assist individuals needing long term services and supports to remain as independent as possible and to promote choice. Special emphasis is placed on community-based services that empower individuals in need of services to remain in their own home or other community-based setting, which reduces the risk of placement in a more restrictive living environment. The department implements long term services and supports through the Home and Community Service offices, Residential Care offices, and 13 contracted Area Agencies on Aging.
