Use ADRC Services to Answer Your Questions about Local Resources

Contact the ADRC and you’ll be connected to friendly, knowledgeable specialists with the answers you need. You can take advantage of our many years of experience researching and coordinating local private and public resources and giving you choices.

ADRC services are always free, confidential, and you can even remain anonymous. After your consultation, you make the decisions about how to live. Those choices are very personal and the ADRC does not make recommendations.

Set up your personal consultation with one of our specialists. You’ll find out how older adults and individuals with disabilities stretch their dollars to live as independently as possible. Just decide where you’d like to meet:
  • Over the phone 
  • At your home 
  • At our office 
  • At another convenient location  
You can learn about local services and resources to match your needs, including:
  • In-home care 
  • Housekeeping and chore services 
  • Home modifications, safety and maintenance

A variety of specialists provide our free services. Staff includes:
