Aging & Disability Resources

The Aging and Disability Resource Center Program (ADRC) is a collaborative effort of the U.S. Administration on Community Living (including AoA as of April 2012) and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). ADRCs serve as single points of entry into the long-term supports and services system for older adults and people with disabilities. They are sometimes referred to as a “one-stop shops” or “no wrong door” systems.

Colorado Eldercare Planning Council (CEPC) is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving of the quality of life for our seniors and especially our senior veterans. CoEPC lists companies and individual providers on this website who help families deal with the crisis and burden of long term care.

Single Entry Point (SEP) Agencies provide case management, care planning, and make referrals to other resources for clients with the following qualifying needs:  elderly, blind and disabled, mental health, persons living with AIDS, brain injury, spinal cord injury, children with a life-limiting illness, children with a physical disability.

Community Centered Boards (CCBs) are private non-profit organizations designated in state statute as the single entry point into the long-term service and support system for persons with developmental disabilities.

Area Agencies on Aging (AAAs) are local aging programs that provide information and services on a range of assistance for older adults and those who care for them.
