Help understanding ALL your options for care

If you have questions about your options for long-term care, we want you to have all the information to make your own choices.  Contact us for objective, in-depth information about the services and resources available to meet your current and future needs.  We’ll discuss with you the types and costs of care available, whether receiving services at home or in another community setting.

 

Programs for your health

Staying active and healthy is key to maintaining your independence.  We offer referrals to several education and prevention programs and to screening services to help protect your health such as blood pressure screening, memory screening, short-term medication management, health education with one-on-one consultations, home safety assessments, and programs to prevent falls.

 

Support for caregivers

Caring for someone who is elderly or disabled can be a rewarding experience, but it can also present challenges.  We offer information, support, and assistance to help family caregivers care for their loved one and themselves.  We can also offer support to grandparents raising grandchildren.  Contact us to learn more about our local Caregiver Support Group, Annual Caregiver Day, Low-vision Support Group, Alzheimer’s Support Group, and respite opportunities.

 

Help transitioning from child to adult services

Change can be challenging.  We can talk with and provide assistance to teens with disabilities and their families as they transition from children’s programming to services for adults.

More on Medicare

If you are on Medicare, the following information may help you with medical costs. The Medicare Savings Program helps people pay the cost of their Medicare premiums, co-payments, and deductibles. Anyone who is eligible for this program will automatically be eligible for help with their Medicare Part D prescription costs. Program eligibility is based on your income and assets. This year changes in federal law mean that more people will be eligible for this program. Contact the ADRC to determine if you are eligible for the Medicare Savings Program or for help applying.

To learn more about the different Medicare Part D prescription plans, you can use the on-line Medicare "plan finder."   Click Here for the online Medicare plan finder.
