ADRCs offer the general public a single source for information and assistance on issues affecting older people and people with disabilities regardless of their income. ADRCs are the first place to go with your aging and disability questions, ages 17.5 to end of life. They are “information stations” where you can obtain accurate, unbiased information related to aging or living with a disability.
Ages 17.5 to end of life.
An ADRC can help you with:
~ information and assistance/referral
~ community resources – ex. housing, personal care, meals, support groups, transportation, respite care
~ benefit counseling
~ Medicaid application assistance
~ long term care assessment and planning
~ health promotion and prevention
~ guardianship assistance and support
~ youth transition planning
~ caregiver support and Outagamie Caregiver Coalition advocacy
~ dementia resource network coordination
~ online Outagamie Resource Directory database found at Outagamie.org – Health and Human Services – Aging and Disability Resource Center – Resource Directory
The ADRC “answers the call” in providing information, resources, linking services to empower individual choice, quality of life and cost effectiveness. The ADRC acts as a link to Federal and State Funding sources and other aging and disability updates.
