Aging and Disability Resources of Colorado (ADRC)
The Aging and Disability Resources for Colorado (ADRC) creates highly visible and trusted places where people of all incomes and ages can turn for information on a full range of long-term support options and access to public long-term support programs and benefits. ADRC streamlines access to long-term care by integrating a full range of support 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 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.
ADRC meetings occur on the second Tuesday each month from 9:30-11:00 a.m. at Region 10′s office. The meetings are a good opportunity to get information and make connections. Our office is located at 145 S Cascade Avenue Montrose, CO 81401. Call us at (970) 249-2436 for more details.
