Aging and Disability Resources for Colorado (ADRC) is a resource center that is available to adults sixty (60) years and older as well as adults eighteen (18) years or older with a disability. ADRC has an open door approach for accessing long-term care services and community resources. This is accomplished by strong collaboration with community partners and accepting assistance from multiple resources. ADRC helps people make decisions about the services that can best fit their need.
ADRC does not provide financial support. It does provide information for:
- Options Counseling
- General information about resources for the disabled and aging.
ADRC links to assistance programs such as:
- Personal Care
- Homemaker services
- Home Modification
ADRC can assist with applications such as:
- Social Security
- Food Stamps
- Medicare - Part D
ADRC also provides Options Counseling, which provides a team approach to help clients, family members, caregivers and significant others to make the best choices they can about current and future care.
The overall goal of ADRC is to streamline access to long-term care information and services. This does not mean just nursing homes. ADRC looks at long-term care as the many services that fall between living independently and needing a nursing home.
