About Department of Agings

The Department of Aging and Disabilities is a function of the Health and Human Services (HHS) whose mission is to promote, support and advocate for the independence, dignity and well-being of seniors, adults with disabilities, and those who care for them in a manner that values diversity, reflects the communities we serve and embraces the collaboration of the aging network.

Aging and Disability Resource Centers (ADRC) are designed to streamline public access to long-term services care programs. ADRCs serve as a key point of access to person centered specialized information, referral and assistance and provide one-stop access to information for people who need help finding long-term care services.

HHS provides a range of services for the elderly that help ensure their well-being, dignity and choice. Programs also are in place to support family caregivers.

Experienced HHS staff and paid contractors can help eligible seniors access services that:
•    Create opportunities to live independently in their own homes
•    Provide information about state and federal benefits and legal rights
•    Give family caregivers the tools to do their job
•    Provide access to meals at home or in group settings
•    Identify assisted-living facility care, daytime programs or nursing home services they qualify for
•    Advocate for people who live in assisted-living facilities or nursing homes
•    Guide people to the right long-term care services
•    Some programs, such as those provided by local area agencies on aging, are available to everyone who is 60 or older. However, other services, such as in home or a nursing home care, are based on income and resources.
