Aging and Disability Resource Center Program
The Aging and Disability Resource Center Program (ADRC), a collaborative effort of AoA and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), is designed to streamline access to long-term care. The ADRC program provides states with an opportunity to effectively integrate the full range of long-term supports and services into a single, coordinated system. By simplifying access to long-term care systems, ADRCs and other single point of entry (SEP) systems are serving as the cornerstone for long-term care reform in many states.
The ADRC for Pennsylvania is known as the Pennsylvania Link to Aging & Disability Resources, commonly called PA Link.
The PA Link, through its network of partners, can assist you in many ways:
- Evaluate services necessary to retain independence
- Make connections with organizations that provide needed services
- Assist with applications to determine funding eligibility
In Clearfield County, there are three core partners and numerous collaborative partners.
