Are you "new" to Medicare? Elder Benefit Specialist Jan Jonet "Welcomes" you to this informative seminar on Friday, October 10.
The Aging & Disability Resource Center (ADRC) is the first place to go to get accurate, unbiased information on all aspects of adult life related to aging or living with a disability. An ADRC is a friendly, welcoming place where anyone - individuals, concerned families or friends, or professionals working with issues related to aging or disabilities - can go for information tailored to their situation. ADRC staff are welcoming and actively listen to understand your unique situation, strengths and challenges. Information will be shared about community services that can best meet your needs and wishes, regardless of your income.
The ADRC provides information on a broad range of programs and services, helps people understand the various long term care options available to them, helps people apply for programs and benefits, and serves as the access point for publicly-funded long term care. These services can be provided at the ADRC, via telephone, or through a home visit, whichever is more convenient to the indivual seeking help.
With the right information, resources and assistance in accessing services, seniors and adults with disabilities can remain independent and safe in their homes. Services and programs offered in Florence County include:
The ADRC is located in the historic Florence County Courthouse, Lower Level, rooms 120 - 126.
