BISMARCK — The North Dakota Department of Human Services will hold webinars this month to highlight services for disabled people and older adults beyond nursing home care.

The first webinar, which was held from noon to 12:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 24, focused on community supports and residential habilitation, including trainings in adaptive and self-help skills. The info session also covered offerings for up to 24-hour daily support in qualifying individuals' homes.

At-home care offerings can include care coordination, homemaker support, meal preparation, personal care like bathing and dressing, medication management and transportation, among other services.

The Department of Human Services encouraged individuals who benefit from such services, their family members and community groups that work with disabled adults to attend the webinars. Recordings will be posted to https://www.nd.gov/dhs/services/adultsaging/.
