In addition to sponsoring the annual Northern Kentucky Senior Expo, the Northern Kentucky Area Development District/Area Agency on Aging and Independent Living (NKADD/AAAIL) is part of a national network of organizations established under the Older Americans Act. Created to respond to the needs of older adults living in the northern eight counties of Kentucky, the staff and volunteers of NKADD/AAAIL work as advocates, planners, coordinators, and developers to ensure that needed services are available to citizens of Northern Kentucky who are 60 years of age and older. In this capacity, NKADD/AAAIL endeavors to bring funding to the region through various sources including governmental programs and public or private grants and provides information on issues affecting older Northern Kentuckians to the community at large.
The Aging and Disability Resource Center housed within NKADD/AAAIL is a great example of the community advocacy and assistance that NKADD/AAAIL provides. This consumer friendly call center has well trained staff to help individuals identify needs and to deliver information regarding available community-wide support options for adults 60 years of age and older and adults with disabilities. The Aging and Disability Resource Center serves as a single point of entry for many publicly funded aging support services, completes screenings for various programs, and provides information and referrals in response to the many and varied inquiries that it receives daily.
