Many programs available for those over 60 or disabled adults

Eva Veitch explains some of the options and programs available to disabled adults and those over 60.
ADRC is the acronym for Aging and Disability Resources for Colorado. In a nutshell—we help disabled adults and those over age 60 navigate health care and supportive services programs and resources that enable them to maintain their highest possible level of independence.
We assess the strengths and needs of those requesting assistance and help them develop a plan that supports their independence. This often involves helping people apply for public benefits like Medicaid, LEAP or Nutrition benefits or Medicare extra help programs. It may be helping people with applications for assistance, advance directives, referrals to legal aid, in-home services, caregiver support, transportation or senior nutrition programs.

Aging and Disability Resources for Colorado (ADRC) is a visible and trusted source of information on the full range of long-term services and support options available to older adults, including:

  • Assisting individuals in planning for their future long-term service and support needs
  • Providing options counseling in a person-centered, interactive decision-support process
  • Providing coordinated and streamlined access to information and assistance
