Senior Residential Services

Senior and Disabilities Services receive funds from the Alaska State Legislature to support Senior Residential Services (SRS). The SRS grant provides essential funds to rural-remote providers to operate and sustain supported residential living services to frail Elders. The intent of the SRS program is to provide support in a residential setting so Elders can remain in their communities of choice as they age; recognizing the importance of community, family and culture for one’s well being while avoiding the need to leave their families, culture and familiar surroundings for institutionalization in larger urban settings. Residents receive individual support in a residential setting which includes assistance with Activities of Daily Living, Instrumental Activities of Daily Living, in addition to social and cultural activities
