Aging and Disability Resources

The vision of the Aging and Disability Resources for Colorado (ADRC) is to create as highly visible and trusted places where people of all incomes and ages can turn for information on the full range of long-term support options and a single point of entry for access to public long term support programs and benefits. ADRC services are provided by Region 10 Community Living Services.

ADRC is designed to streamline access to long-term care by integrating a full range of supports and services into a single, coordinated system. ADRC provides assistance to individuals and caregivers needing either public or private resources, to professionals seeking assistance on behalf of their clients, and to individuals planning for their future long term care needs.

ADRC offers a range of services including:
• Information
• Referral
• Planning Assistance
• Options Counseling
• Application Assistance
• Follow Up

Eligibility

ADRC services, provided by Region 10 Community Living Services, are available to residents of Delta, Gunnison, Hinsdale, Montrose, Ouray, and San Miguel Counties who are either 60+ years of age or those who are 18+ years of age with a disability. Join the ADRC by downloading a membership application.

Meetings

ADRC meetings occur on the second Tuesday each month from 9:30-11:00 am at Region 10′s office. Call us at (970) 249-2436 for more details.

The next ADRC meeting is Tuesday, Feb. 13 at 9:30 at Region 10 in Montrose.

Region 10 Referral Clarification: We have gotten the word (Region 10) that agencies and community members are not referring people to the ADRC because homemaking/personal care/respite have waiting lists.  I wanted to make sure it is clear, there is not a waitlist for options counseling.  If you have people in need of supports and services, and your agency does not offer benefits counseling or options counseling, please refer people to the ADRC for Options Counseling, even though the Area Agency on Aging has a waitlist, other programs do not.  We can sit down with people and go over what programs, supports and services are available, help them navigate applying for benefits and look at other avenues for care, they also need to not wait to get on the AAA waitlist if needed.

“Liberty Mobility Now” is a new ride-sharing service coming to Montrose, Ouray and San Miguel Counties. Liberty is helping get people where they need to go, either on demand or up to 5 days in advance. Simply schedule on the smartphone app or call the Call Center at 844-745-4237. Rides cost $1.00 per mile traveled, however, subsidies are available on a sliding scale fee through Tri-County Health Network to help with the cost of medically necessary transportation.

Liberty Mobility is also seeking drivers who want to help others in the community while receiving 60 cents per mile reimbursement. If you are interested to learn more, please call 970-919-0229 or email erich@libertymobilitynow.com.”
