The Aging and Disabilities Resource Center (ADRC) serves as a single point of entry for the long term supports and services available for seniors and those with disabilities. Sometimes referred to as a “one-stop shop” or “no wrong door “ system, the ADRC addresses many of the frustrations consumers and their families experience while trying to find information, services and supports that they or their loved one need. The ADRC is able to raise visibility of the full range of programs, services and options that are available. By providing objective information, advice, counseling and assistance, they empower people to make informed decisions about their long term support, and help people more easily access both public and private long term supports and services.
