Aging and Disability Resource Center (ADRC) Programs
Seniors and adults with disabilities wish to remain as independent as possible for as long as possible. We are very excited about our innovated, consumer-directed programs that give seniors and adults with disabilities choices to help them live and age successfully in the comfort of their own home.
Individuals in need of assistance can contact our office to find the community resources that are available.
