Aging and Disability Resource Centers (ADRCs)


Description:

The Aging and Disability Resource Center Program (ADRC)is a collaborative effort of the Administration on Aging (AoA) and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).

ADRC programs provide information and assistance to individuals needing either public or private resources, to professionals seeking assistance on behalf of their clients and to individuals planning for their future long-term care needs. ADRC programs also serve as the entry point to publicly administered long-term supports including those funded under Medicaid, the Older Americans Act and state revenue programs.

Nationally, ADRC programs have taken important steps towards meeting AoA and CMS’s vision by:

*creating a person-centered, community-based environment that promotes independence and dignity for individuals;

*providing easy access to information to assist consumers in exploring a full range of long-term support options; and

*providing resources and services that support the range of needs for family caregivers.

AoA and CMS envision ADRCs as highly visible and trusted places available in every community across the country where people of all ages, incomes and disabilities go to get information on the full range of long-term support options. The ultimate goal of the ADRCs is to serve all individuals with long-term care needs regardless of their age or disability.
