Georgia 's Aging and Disability Resource Connection (ADRC) is not a place or a program! It is a coordinated system of partnering organizations that are dedicated to:
  • Providing accurate information about publicly and privately financed long-term supports and services.
  • Offering a consumer-oriented approach to learning about the availability of services in the home and community.
  • Alleviating  the need for multiple calls and/or visits to receive services.
  • Supporting individuals and family members who are aging or living with a disability.

Georgia 's ADRC currently serves all of the 159 counties across the state. For more information or to receive assistance contact an ADRC near you. You may visit the ADRC website to learn more at: http://www.georgiaadrc.com/
