Lawmakers approved permanent Aging and Disability Resource Centers at locations across the state. These free one-stop sites for information, referral and assistance were first launched as a demonstration project in 2015 to connect older and disabled Nebraskans and family caregivers with the support and services they need. Such information can help people stay in their homes longer and avoid costly care.
The new law, which passed in April, means the centers are no longer temporary and instead will serve as an ongoing component of the state’s plan for long-term care.
