GA Aging and Disability Resource Connection:

Georgia's Aging and Disability Resource Connection (ADRC) links seniors and adults with disabilities to resources that promote independence. We are your starting point for long-term services and supports. You can call to make an appointment with one of our counselors to learn which services are best for you. Some individuals are eligible for publicly funded services. For some, paying for services is a better option than publicly funded services. This usually ensures the services will be provided more quickly.

To visit the ADRC website visit: https://www.georgiaadrc.com/  or call 866-552-4464

ADRC Counselors use the EmpowerlinePro resource data base to search for resources in your area.
