Who We Are

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The Kentucky Department for Aging and Independent Living (DAIL) oversees administration of statewide programs and services on behalf of Kentucky elders and individuals with disabilities.​

In partnership with Kentucky's Area Agencies on Aging and Independent Living, community mental health centers, Center for Independent Living and other community partners, DAIL provides leadership and addresses issues and circumstances that stand in the way of elders and individuals with disabilities achieving the best possible quality of life.

Mission Statement

The mission of the Department for Aging and Independent Living is to promote the welfare, dignity and independence of older adults, individuals with physical disabilities and adults in need of a guardian.


All Kentuckians, regardless of age or ability, will have access to the information and supports necessary to live independently.

Need help? Call us

Because locating, understanding and accessing public programs and services can be difficult, DAIL helps streamline processes and provides one-on-one assistance by phone. We help clients find the most appropriate programs and services for their needs.

We also have tried to make our website as user-friendly and functional as possible by providing information and links to other resources of interest to elder Kentuckians, people with disabilities and their families.
