The process is directed by the individual and may include others such as a caregiver or legal representative.

An ADRC is designed to be a highly visible and trusted place where people can turn for information on a full range of long-term support options. The philosophy behind Indiana’s ADRC’s is to empower older adults and persons with physical disabilities to have greater control over their lives by improving their ability to make informed choices.
LifeSpan Resources is proud to be providing an enhanced level of information and assistance/referral to the community through our ADRC for Clark, Floyd, Harrison and Scott counties in Indiana. The ADRC is designed to streamline access to long-term care and be a “one-stop-shop” that helps older adults and individuals of any age with a disability to access services. As such, we are the initial point of entry for In-Home services.
The Aging and Disability Resource Center provides information and assistance to individuals needing either public or private resources, professionals seeking assistance on behalf of their clients, and any individual planning for their future long-term care needs. You can contact the ADRC by phone, walk-in, appointment or via the web.
