BISMARCK – The North Dakota Department of Social Services will be hosting webinars this month to highlight services for people with disabilities and the elderly beyond nursing home care.
The first webinar, which ran from noon to 12:30 p.m. on Wednesday, November 24, focused on community supports and residential adjustment, including training on coping skills and self-help. The information session also covered offers of daily assistance up to 24 hours in the homes of eligible people.
Home care offerings may include care coordination, support for housewives, meal preparation, personal care such as bathing and dressing, medication management, and transportation, among other services.
The Department of Social Services encouraged those who receive these services, their family members and community groups who work with adults with disabilities to attend the webinars. Recordings will be posted on https://www.nd.gov/dhs/services/adultsaging/.
