Aging & Disability Resource Center

Serving Adams, Green Lake, Marquette, & Waushara Counties

The Aging and Disability Resource Center (ADRC) is the first place to go with your aging and disability questions. The ADRC is a service center that provides information and assistance to older and disabled adults, their friends, family, caregivers and the general public. New and exciting things are happening with the Aging & Disability Resource Center serving Green Lake, Marquette, and Waushara counties.  Adams, Green Lake, Marquette, and Waushara counties each have their own local offices, but work together with the other counties as one ADRC to provide services.

Some of the advantages of a multi-county ADRC include quality of service, operational efficiencies, and greater consistency for providing resources and services to the community. The multi-county ADRC maintains a resource database, provides staff training, marketing, outreach, and develops public information materials. Taking advantage of technology makes it possible to serve the public from one location via the telephone and internet. The quality of services improves when the counties combine operations making it possible to hire staff who are specially trained in the various functions of the Resource Center and in the needs of the different target populations it serves. The ADRC has the ability to respond quickly to consumer requests and have consistent services available to Resource Center customers.

Services include: information and assistance, long term care options counseling, elderly benefits counseling, disability benefits counseling, prevention strategies, community resources and adult protective services. The Aging & Disability Resource Center will provide links for services that include: senior dining program, meals on wheels, food stamps, food pantry, transportation, housing, home health care, residential care/assisted living, nursing home care, senior employment, Alzheimer’s services, power of attorney, guardianship, senior centers, support groups, medical assistance, caregiver resources, volunteer opportunities, transition services, and other services.

The Aging & Disability Resource Center serving Adams, Green Lake, Marquette, & Waushara Counties partnered with The Waushara Argus to publish a Resource Directory. This Directory is a helpful guide, providing information regarding services available in the area. The directory will be updated periodically. Please call or visit your local ADRC for a free copy of the latest Resource Directory.
