How Can We Help You?

Benefits Counseling

Benefits counselors provide information, counseling, assistance and advocacy to people who are over 60 and others who are Medicare-eligible regarding their benefits, entitlements and legal rights. 

Long-Term Options Counseling

Long-term Options Counseling serves the purpose of supporting consumers, family members and significant others in their deliberations about their long-term care. We aim to provide information on the full-range of options that leads to the development of an “options plan.” Counselors provide in-depth information about supports and services, the locations of services, potential costs and payment options and assist the consumer to identify preferences and potential resources to meet long-term care needs.

Systems Navigation

ADRC staff will assist individuals with navigating the Health and Human Services system.  and help with understanding and awareness of private and public benefits and assistance in applying for various benefits. This includes Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP – Food Stamps) and local assistance programs, among others.
