Email - Information & Assistance for ADRC
What happens when I contact the ADRC?
Initial calls to the ADRC can inform Information Specialists of a person's needs and start a process where resources and options to meet those needs are addressed. The Information Specialist can provide information and referral to community resources, an overview of eligibility criteria for public programs, and perspective on the process that is involved to get assistance.
The Information Specialist gathers information about a person's current needs and may provide information and referral, or refer a person on for more in-depth Options Counseling, and/or an Assessment for services.
How does the ADRC concept work in Kansas?
The state of Kansas has entered into an agreement with the Southwest Kansas Area Agency on Aging, a representing entity for the Area Agencies on Aging serving all 105 Kansas counties, to provide ADRC services throughout the state. SWKAAA has subcontracted with the other 10 AAAs to provide a statewide ADRC.
Information, referral, and assistance, as well as Options Counseling will be available to assist and direct the general population to benefits and services. Functional assessments will be provided for Medicaid waiver programs for the Frail Elderly(FE), Physically Disabled(PD), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and Nursing Facility Level I CARE customers.
