Services temporarily restored to help Oregonians with disabilities live independently

The Department of Human Services Aging and People with Disabilities program (APD) has announced that they have reached an agreement with Disability Rights Oregon, Legal Aid Services of Oregon and the Oregon Law Center that will restore long-term care hours and benefits to older adults and adults with disabilities who lost benefits due to program and rule changes last summer and fall.
APD will contact consumers impacted. In addition, the agreement calls for additional discussions about a permanent plan for the program.
