Aging and Disability Resource Center (ADRC)

The five Aging & Disability Resource Centers in Maine serve as “one-stop-shops” to answer questions from older adults, or from any individuals with disabilities, about a wide range of in-home, community-based, and institutional services.

Aging and Disability Resource Centers are expert at answering questions in-home care services and all kinds of long-term support. Maine’s five Aging and Disability Resource Center sites:

  • provide information and assistance to individuals needing either public or private long-term care resources,
  • serve professionals seeking assistance on behalf of their clients’ long-term care needs,
  • serve individuals planning for their future long-term care needs, and
  • serve as the entry point to publicly administered long-term supports including those funded under Medicaid, the Older Americans Act and state revenue programs.

Maine’s Aging & Disability Resource Centers are designed to serve all older adults, people with disabilities and their caregivers,  who have long-term care community or program needs.


Assistance or services from the ADRC:

  • Information and referrals:  you may just need information, simple or complicated. You also can receive referrals to services within your community such as transportation, housing, home care, and Meals on Wheels.
  • Services: the ADRC can help you access services such as congregate or home-delivered meals, prevention of falls, managing chronic diseases, Alzheimer’s respite services, adult day care, access to legal services, employment training, or health insurance counseling
  • Medicare/Health Insurance counseling:  help in choosing the best policy for your situation, understanding the different plans, and assisting you with applications
  • Educational Opportunities: the ADRC can connect you with educational opportunities
  • Options Counseling:  If you are interested in learning more about services you may need over time, for yourself or someone you care for, the ADRC staff can help you figure out what “options” of services might work well for you.
  • Advocacy: the ADRC works for you – feel free to ask for what you need – we’d like to try to help!
  • Caregiver Support Services: may include respite, caregiver training, support groups, helpful information, and individual support
