TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Kansas officials will tour the state next month to gather suggestions and opinions on services funded by the Older Americans Act.

Staff members from the state Department for Aging and Disability Services will hold hour-long meetings in five cities between March 5 and March 13. Lunch will follow each meeting.

Services funded by the Older Americans Act are directed at people 60 and older. They include legal assistance, caregiver and in-home services, transportation help and nutrition programs.

Department Secretary Shawn Sullivan says the agency wants to know what services older Kansans need to remain independent and stay in their homes for as long as possible. The agency must develop a four-year plan to receive federal funding.

The meetings are scheduled in Dodge City, El Dorado, Topeka, Salina, and Kansas City.
