What is the ADRC First Pilot Project?
The ADRC First Pilot Project is a process developed to improve access and outcomes for individuals seeking long-term services and supports. The process begins when an individual contacts the Aging and Disabilities Resource Center or another provider with a need for assistance. The ADRC provides a short pre-screening that will ensure the individual receives information and options counseling, provides short-term crisis support to prevent institutionalization, and assists in planning for future needs. The ADRC First pilot intake and screening is specifically designed to look at each individual holistically in order to assist them in navigating the service delivery system so they are able to make informed choices about their care.
Who will participate?
