The First Place to go with Aging, Disability, and Caregiver Questions
The Aging and Disability Resource Center (ADRC), housed within the Area Agency on Aging, provides free, unbiased information and assistance, counseling on available options, and helps people access and apply for services and programs.
Options Counseling: Aging professionals provide a listening ear to help you find the information and help you need, based on your unique circumstances. We are the first place to try to find unbiased information about the array of services available in South Alabama.
Benefits Assistance: The ADRC screens clients for financial benefits, including food assistance, Medicare savings programs that help pay premiums and reduce out of pocket costs, and other public benefits or discounts. The ADRC assists clients to complete and submit these applications when needed. Please note these programs are income based. See the NCOA Benefit Check-up Link below for an on-line screening.
Staying at Home: Some of the programs the ADRC screens for provide in home services, including home delivered meals and help in the home. Private companies are fee based and public programs have eligibility criteria and often have waiting lists.
Assisting Caregivers: The ADRC can connect caregivers to programs offering caregiver support, local Caregiver Colleges, respite care, Adult Day Care, and information about Alzheimer’s disease and Dementia.
Getting Involved: The ADRC provides information on programs offering employment services, wellness classes, and volunteer opportunities.
