Aging and Disability Resource Centers (ADRCs)
The Department of Elder Affairs administers programs and services for elders across the state of Florida through 11 Area Agencies on Aging, which operateÂ Aging and Disability Resource Centers (ADRCs). These ADRCs functionÂ as a single, coordinated system for information and access to services for all Floridians seeking long-term care resources. The ADRCs provide information and assistance about state and federal benefits, as well as available local programs and services. See below to contact your local ADRC.
By sharing a common information and referral system, the ADRCs are able to provide elders with uniform assistance no matter where they live. This system also offers the public access to a statewide database of local community resources, available on the internet or by calling the Elder Helpline toll-free at 1-800-96 ELDER (1-800-963-5337). To streamline eligibility for services, staff of the Departmentâ€™s CARES (Comprehensive Assessment and Review for Long-Term Care Services) program and eligibility specialists with the Department of Children and Families work together to help seniors learn more quickly whether they are eligible for long-term care services.
