Our Aged and Disabled Resource Center (ADRC) provides seniors and persons with disabilities the information and services to remain independent:
There are 16 Area Agencies on Aging (AAAs) in Indiana and 600+ in the United States and although many of their services are the same, many services are different. They offer advocacy, planning and funding of services that make a difference in the lives of older adults—from the frail older person or the person with disabilities of any age who is able to remain at home if they receive the right services, to their caregivers, as well as those persons who are healthy and can benefit from activities and socialization provided by community-based programs.
The Aged and Disabled Resource Centers (ADRCs), a service of the AAAs, help older adults and individuals with disabilities make informed decisions about their care options and serve as the point of entry to the long-term care system.

Grandparent/Relatives Raising Children
Grandparents/relatives who are raising children have special issues related to their situation. Area IV offers several programs for educating these parental figures and helping them raise children that are not their own.
Information and Assistance
Information and Assistance – your first stop for information about care options, resources, and procedures for helping yourself or a disabled or aging loved one remain independent. It provides referrals to appropriate agencies and services and offers family consultations and personal needs assessments. Assessments and referrals are done for Medicaid Waiver and CHOICE in-home services and home-delivered meals.
In-Home Services and Care Management
A Care Manager assesses services needed, arranges for these services and monitors how these services are helping the individual. Care Management is a "system" that ensures appropriate services to the elderly and disabled persons to assist them in remaining independent.
Nursing Home Pre-Admission Screening
The Nursing Home Pre-admission Screening program is a state and federal requirement for every individual seeking entrance to an Indiana licensed nursing home (long-term care facility). This process can help evaluate the applicant’s health situation and provide information on possible admittance to a nursing facility or it may provide options as to alternative care.
