What is an Aging and Disability Resource Center?

 

Aging and Disability Resource Centers (ADRCs) offer the general public a single entry point for information and assistance on issues affecting older people, and people with disabilities regardless of their income.  These resource centers are welcoming and convenient places for you and your family to get information and access to a wide variety of services.  Services can be provided through the telephone, in the resource center, or in your own home.
