East Central Kansas Area Agency on Aging is dedicated to coordinate and provide varied programs and services to older persons and caregivers in order to improve the quality of life and celebrate their independence, health and dignity of all older Kansans. Our best services are those that empower people to discover their own strengths, their own talents, and their own solutions. The area agency on aging has the responsibility to advocate for services that respond to the needs of the most frail, vulnerable elderly. When funding falls short, volunteers fill in the gap to meet necessary needs. Guided by the leadership and commitment of the agency's Advisory Council and Policy Board, East Central Kansas Area Agency on Aging will continue to provide support and find solutions for older Kansans and their families in need.
The East Central Kansas Area Agency on Aging will serve as the single, highly accessible, point of entry for older Kansans living in Anderson, Coffey, Franklin, Linn, Miami and Osage Counties, that are seeking help in maintaining their health, independence and dignity. In pursuit of healthy lifestyles and dignified self-sufficiency for the aging population, the East Central Kansas Area Agency on Aging will corrdinate and provide varied programs and services, paid by federal, state, and local dollars, as well as client contributions and co-pays, and other grant/contract sources.
