Aging and Disability Resource Center (ADRC)
The Aging and Disability Resource Center (ADRC) of the Capital Area is a single access point to long-term services and support program benefits for older adults, those with disabilities and their caregivers. With a network of federal, state, and local governments and nonprofit organizations, the resource center supplies older and disabled residents the single best resource for discovering information about services and benefits they need.
Using the no-wrong-door approach, the resource center assists consumers in accessing a variety of services and benefit programs by being a single point of contact. Services can range from Medicare application assistance to locating accessible housing resources in the resident’s community.
The ADRC inquires about a person’s needs and then refers the appropriate organization to the consumer instead of referring the consumer to the appropriate organizations. This approach streamlines the process for people seeking information. It also prevents the consumer from retelling their story multiple times to discover what benefits will meet their entire needs. Instead, every person, who seeks the ADRC's assistance, shares their story once with the center before the center connects the best benefit resources or service options to the consumer.
The ADRC serves individuals in CAPCOG's ten-county region: Bastrop, Blanco, Burnett, Caldwell, Fayette Hays, Lee, Llano, Travis and Williamson counties.
