ADRC - Aging & Disability Resource Center
The Aging and Disability Resource Center (ADRC) Link Program is a collaborative effort of the Administration on Aging (AoA) and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). These ADRCs serve as single points of entry into long-term supports and services system for older adults and people with disabilities. Sometimes referred to as a “one stop shop” or “no wrong door” systems, ADRCs address many of the frustrations consumers and their families experience when trying to find needed information, services, and supports. Through integration or coordination of existing Aging and Disability service systems, ADRC programs raise visibility about the full range of options that are available, provide objective information, advice, counseling and assistance, empower people to make informed decisions about their long term supports, and help people more easily access public and private long term supports and services programs.
The Potter County Area Agency on Aging is a member of a collaborative group of community agencies that serve aged and disabled consumers, within a six county region. (Potter, Cameron, Elk, McKean, Clearfield and Jefferson Counties)
