Sedgwick County commissioners approved additional funding for a program that provides in-home services for older people who have limited physical abilities.
The Senior Care Act program will add two full-time positions in 2018. The program serves people 60 years old and older in Sedgwick, Butler and Harvey counties.
The program provides in-home help with personal care, meals, appointments, and light housework.
Annette Graham with the Sedgwick County Division on Aging says 170 seniors are receiving services, and another 200 are on a waiting list.
