Aging and Disability Resource Centers (ADRCs) across the country seek to address the frustrations many older adults, people with disabilities, and family members experience when trying to learn about and access long-term services and supports.
ADRCs raise visibility about the full range of available options; provide objective information, advice, counseling and assistance; empower people to make informed decisions about their long-term services and supports; and help people access public and private programs. ADRCs provide unbiased, reliable information and counseling to people with all levels of income.
ADRCs are an important part of the No Wrong Door (NWD) system model. A collaboration between ACL, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), and the Veterans Health Administration, the NWD initiative supports states working to streamline access to long-term services and supports for older adults, people with disabilities, and their families.
Contact information for many ADRCs can be found through the Eldercare Locator.
