    Check out the link below to a public radio "Here & Now" article on the complexity of navigating senior health care decisions.  Navigating Senior's Health Decisions Can Be Complex...

    ILC is an ADRC, Aging and Disability Resource Center.  Part of our ADRC program is to provide options counseling to seniors regarding services and finding adequate care.  We provide a screening interview called a PCI (Person Centered Intake) that is required by the State of Alaska for Medicaid Waiver services.  Medicaid waivers are one mechanism that senior and disability care needs can be funded.  This can be complex processes to navigate so our ADRC staff can talk with individuals about their unique circumstances and develop options.  For more information link to our ADRC page and or contact an ILC office in your community.
