The population of older Kansans is growing. By 2030, the demand for senior care services is expected to outpace the supply of services in the state. To address future challenges, the Senior Care Task Force was formed under 2021 House Bill 2114 and tasked with analyzing barriers and creating strategic solutions to protect and provide services to seniors residing in the state.

On February 21, 2023, the Kansas Health Institute (KHI) offered an education session to discuss the latest recommendations developed by the Senior Care Task Force working groups, which are comprised of experts from around the state. The discussion was led by Emma Uridge, C.H.E.S., KHI Research Assistant; Hina B. Shah, M.P.H., KHI Senior Analyst & Portfolio Strategist; Haely Ordoyne, Kansas Adult Care Executives, Chair of the Workforce Subgroup; and Sarah Schlitter, Johnson County Developmental Supports, Chair of the Access to Services Working Group. A recording of the session is below.
