Have you heard of the Aging and Disability Resource Center and all they have to offer? No? Know someone who can use assistance in their home? Just turn 65 or will be soon and want to know more about Medicare? Know someone that has a disability struggling to find the right resources? Just want to know the best transportation options or handyman in town to help you out? Well- guess what? The ADRC can help with all those scenarios and more!
ADRC’s are a no-cost, single point of contact for information and assistance. They are a central source of information, assistance and access to community resources for older people and people with disabilities, as well as their families. Personalized assistance is available at the resource centers, over the telephone, or home visits.
The staff can help you sort through all of the options available and make informed decisions about a wide variety of topics, such as:
- Maintaining your independence
- Support services and resources in your community
- Choices for long-term care and related services
- Medicare benefits and other health-related benefits
- How to cut through the “red tape” and receive assistance with Medicaid, Medicare, Social Security and other benefits
- Evidence-Based health and wellness programs
ADRC’s provide unbiased information about the providers and services in your community, their availability, and costs. Their team of professionals will work with you to find the right fit of options for your individual situation and provide the information you need to make the best decisions.
