Aging & Disability Resource Network

The Aging and Disability Resource Network (ADRN) provides easy access to long-term care services and supports. The ADRN is designed to enhance access for all consumers to community living, personal choice and independence. The ADRN provides information & referral, options counseling, and advice and assistance including eligibility determinations for public programs.

Calls received through the Aging and Disability Resource Network range from simple requests for a phone number to assistance in paying for medications, utilities, groceries or even rent.  Other calls received include requests for assistance with daily living activities like cooking meals, getting to doctor’s appointments, assistance with bathing and assistance with cleaning the house.

Calls can result in many different outcomes:

  • Information can be provided to consumers over the phone
  • Referrals can be made on behalf of the consumer over the phone
  • Information can be mailed to the consumer
  • A free, in-home, long-term care consultation can be scheduled for the consumer to provide a more comprehensive look at options and resources available.
