With great anticipation and excitement, Arcare Inc. announces the opening of a second location in Topeka, Kan., as we strive to meet the ever-evolving needs of families in planning for loved ones with a disability.
The expansion will allow us to serve additional clients and families in areas such as Topeka, Emporia, Ottawa, Manhattan and Junction City, as well as many rural communities in Kansas and Nebraska. While this decision was made before the global coronavirus pandemic began impacting the Midwest, the effects of the virus confirmed that additional communities need and will benefit from our services.
As a certified 501(c)(3), Arcare has proudly served families and individuals with special needs in Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma and Nebraska for nearly 40 years. While much has changed throughout the last four decades, the mission of our organization has stayed the same: to provide caring and professional advocacy and support services to individuals with developmental, physical, or emotional disabilities while assisting the individuals in achieving their highest level of well-being consistent with the circumstances and resources available, and with appropriate consideration of family desires.
Core services offered by Arcare at both the Overland Park and Topeka locations include:
- The Life Care Plan Program providing comprehensive and individualized planning services for families whose lives are affected by disability, including acting as court appointed guardian or conservator.
- Special Needs Trustee Services, including a third-party pooled trust and a self-settled pooled trust. Our trust services help ensure individuals with disability have the financial resources required to meet their needs without jeopardizing eligibility for government-provided supplemental benefits. Arcare’s trust services provide an affordable solution to a family’s trust needs, whether an individual is receiving a personal injury settlement, backpay from Social Security, or funds set aside by a family member for the individual with special needs.
- Representative Payee Services providing a solution for many individuals with disabilities who experience difficulty in paying bills and managing a budget, as well as alleviating the fiduciary burden for family members.
These services allow Arcare to develop a plan of action for each client that responds to real-life situations today and anticipates the needs of the future. Arcare offers professionalism, ease of administration, expertise with disabilities, continuity and peace of mind for clients and families of loved ones with disabilities.
We understand that planning for a loved one with a disability can be an overwhelming responsibility. Contact us today by calling 913.648.0233 or emailing for answers to any questions you may have, and let us support you step-by-step throughout the process.
