ADRC stands for Aging and Disability Resources for Colorado.
The mission of ADRC is to provide individuals, family members, caregivers and significant others a coordinated and streamlined access point to long term care services and support through one on one Assessments and Options Counseling with our Senior Coordinator, Mary Cockle and her assistant, Deb Houts. The goal is to promote informed decisions that align with personal preferences, strengths, values and needs.
But what is Long-Term Care? It is not necessarily medical care as much as a range of services and support that may be needed to meet the basic and personal tasks of everyday life. Examples would be help with bathing, meal preparation, taking medication, housekeeping, caring for pets, managing money, etc. It can also include Estate Planning, Caregiver Support and Advocacy.
Some services and resources available to qualifying individuals include medical equipment, safety devices, hearing aids, dental assistance, eye glasses, medical assistance, information on assisted living facilities, caregiver assistance, home health care, home modifications, financial assistance, legal assistance, information on Long Term Care insurance, Medicare and Prescription Drug Counseling, nursing home information, nutrition counseling, private case management, Social Security and Veterans' benefits.
We are thrilled to be able to offer this expanded role in the county as it will provide far-reaching and much needed access to services beyond the scope of the program.
