Aging and Disability Resource Center

ADRC

 

Often, the processes of aging or living with a disability comes with new challenges and new questions. It can be hard to find answers. 

The ADRC is here to help you find the answers you need. The ADRC provides accurate information on all aspects of adult life related to aging or living with a disability. The ADRC is a friendly, welcoming place where anyone - individuals, concerned families or friends, or professionals working with issues related to aging or disabilities - can go for information tailored to their situation. ADRC staff actively listen to understand your unique situation, strengths and challenges. Information will be shared about community services that can best meet your needs and values, regardless of your income. 

The ADRC provides information on a broad range of programs and services, helps people understand the various long term care options available to them, helps people apply for programs and benefits, and serves as an access point for information about publicly-funded long term care. Staff will meet with you at the ADRC, via telephone, or at home, whichever is most helpful to the individual seeking help. 

We'd love to hear from you, please call or stop in.
