Purpose of the Organization

Helps people age 60 and over and adults with disabilities secure needed services or benefits, live with dignity and security, and achieve maximum independence and quality of life. ADRC is a grant program through the Federal Department of Health & Human Services Administration on Aging, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid and the State of Wisconsin Department of Health Services. The grant program helps states create a single coordinated system of information and access for all persons seeking long-term care support. The Aging & Disability Resource Center of Eau Claire County is a single-county standalone ADRC. There are no income requirements to utilize ADRC services, which are also available to family members, friends, caregivers and professionals working with these populations.
