Who We Serve

We proudly serve Polk and Burnett Counties, and the St Croix Chippewa Indians of Wisconsin. 

We provide assistance to adults (including disabled young adults 17.5 years old) and the elderly.  We serve people with physical or intellectual/developmental disabilities, mental health or substance abuse issues, and the elderly.

We offer guidance and assistance to caregivers and family members of loved ones, spouses, medical providers and discharge planners, professionals in the community…anyone who cares about or is assisting an elderly or disabled individual.

We assist all people - regardless of income.

Mission and Vision

To provide older adults and people with physical or developmental/intellectual disabilities the resources needed to live with dignity and security, and achieve maximum independence and quality of life.  The goal of the Aging and Disability Resource Center is to empower individuals to make informed choices and to streamline access to the right and appropriate services and supports.

Who We Are

The Aging and Disability Resource Center, known as the ADRC, provides the general public with a warm and welcoming office to contact for information and assistance on issues affecting older people and people with disabilities, regardless of income.

The ADRC is the first place to go with your aging and disability questions.  We are an “information station” where you can receive accurate, unbiased information.

What We Do

By enabling people to find resources in their communities and make informed decisions about long term care, ADRCs help people conserve their personal resources, maintain self-sufficiency and delay or prevent the need for potentially expensive long term care.  ADRCs also serve as the single access point for publicly funded long term care, including Family Care and IRIS. 

It is never too early to start asking questions.  We encourage you to call us and begin planning for your future needs.  Of course, we can also assist you with questions or challenges you may be facing now.

Most services offered by the ADRC are provided free of charge.  People who use the transportation services provided by the ADRC are charged a co-payment for rides.  Meal services, such as congregate dining and home delivered meals, do not charge a fee but a donation to the program is appreciated.  The staff of the ADRC may refer you to other providers outside of the ADRC, and those providers may charge for their services.
