AGING AND DISABILITY RESOURCE CENTER

A collaborative effort between the Administration for Community Living (ACL) and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), and known nationally by its acronym ADRC, Aging & Disability Resource Centers are tasked with serving as highly visible and trusted places where people can turn for the full range of long term support services. ADRC’s serve as single entry points for services for older individuals and individuals with disabilities.

Officially opening on May 4, 2010, the North Central Aging and Disability Resource Center became the third of its kind in Connecticut. Through the Aging & Disability Resource Centers, NCAAA administers the Community Choices program which helps individuals and their families identify necessary services regardless of age, financial disposition, or health status.
