There are a lot of people who work here at the Aging and Disability Resource Center (ADRC). Some of the people who work here are called Information and Assistance Specialists.
What does an Information and Assistance Specialist do?
Information and Assistance Specialists can help to connect you with services and can refer you for assistance. We welcome contact with individuals, their families, friends and caregivers.
What is Information and Assistance?
Information and Assistance Specialists in the ADRC can provide you with information about services, resources and programs in areas such as disability and long-term care, living arrangements, health and wellness, nutrition and publicly funded programs. Information and Assistance Specialists can help to connect you with services and can refer you for assistance with Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Food Share, and Medicaid as needed. Information and Assistance Specialists can cover a wide range of topics from home care to hospice services, from Alzheimer’s care to education.
Information and Assistance Specialists offer information and can help evaluate options that are available to meet your long-term care needs. An Information and Assistance Specialist discusses factors to consider when making long-term care decisions. ADRC’s provide this service to the general public and to all individuals with long-term care needs. Information, options counseling and/or referrals are free of charge.
A Great Opportunity for you…
Information and Assistance Specialists are now available at the Columbus Senior Center the first Wednesday of every month.
