TOPEKA — The Kansas Department on Aging said it’s halting four services designed to keep the elderly out of nursing homes. Aging secretary Martin Kennedy said the cuts were because of state budget cuts and will affect nearly 600 frail elderly Kansans. Programs that were halted are for assistive technology support, sleep cycle support, comprehensive support services and dental services. Other basic services designed to keep the elderly out of nursing homes will stay in effect for the time being, he said. Those who will be cut off will receive a written 10-day notice. When funds are restored, the services could be restored, he said.
