Stretch Your Savings and Keep Your Options Open
What happens when you need some help to maintain your independence? Naturally, you want to make the most of your money. Your ADRC office can help you identify the services that can help you and stretch your savings. Though it can be difficult to spend money on services you’d prefer to do yourself, it’s often a good long-term decision.
When you pay, you have more choices:
What you want
When you want it
Where you want it
When a government program pays for your services, your options are restricted.
You Make the Decision
Many people find that spending a fairly small amount pays off for them. Simple modifications and community support can prevent you or your loved one from expensive medical bills or home repairs that can quickly drain savings.
Customers of the ADRC cover a wide spectrum:
Adults 60 and older, regardless of income or the amount of assets
Adults with disabilities, regardless of income or the amount of assets
Families, friends, caregivers, neighbors, guardians of the above
Service providers in the community, including physicians and discharge planners at hospitals and nursing homes, social workers, care managers
Local businesses and employers
All Wisconsin counties and tribes provide ADRC services.
