Information & Assistance
The Aging and Disability Resource Center Information and Assistance Specialists provide information on services and activities that can help seniors and adults with physical or intellectual/developmental disabilities maintain their independence, dignity, and quality of life. The ADRC is a one-stop resource for individuals, their families, and caregivers.
ADRC Information and Assistance Specialists will meet with you personally to explain Resource Center services and programs available to meet your specific needs. If the help you require isn't available from us, we'll refer you to other agencies or individuals in the community. We provide ongoing assistance to help you obtain the services you need.
For these services, call 715-346-1401 or 866-920-2525.
There are several ways to meet and pay for your long-term care; it is important to think ahead about how you will fund that care when that time comes. An information and assistance specialist will meet with you and discuss what to consider when making decisions about housing and care needs now and for your future.
As children with disabilities near adulthood, information and assistance staff are available to meet with them and their families to determine what services they are eligible for as adults and assist them with accessing these services.
Eligibility & Access to Publicly Funded Long-Term Care
The ADRC is the single entry point for accessing publicly funded long-term care programs such as Family Care and IRIS. These programs offer a variety of services that include medical and non-medical care to help people who have a chronic illness or disability. An Information and Assistance Specialist will work with you to determine if you are eligible, counsel you on the program choices which are available to you, and coordinate your enrollment into a program.
