Information & Referral

Guardianships are a useful legal tool to help people who lack the capacity to make decisions for themselves – such as those suffering from dementia or developmental disability. A guardian can help ensure that the protected person lives with security and dignity to the greatest extent possible given their circumstances.

The Aging and Disability Resource Center is a statewide initiative with the intent of serving as a single point of entry into the long-term care system. The Center serves as a “one-stop shop” for access to programs, services, information and assistance.

When you or a loved one enters a long-term care facility such as a nursing home, it is important to know you have a full-time advocate in the community who can respond to and investigate complaints. Our ombudsman works to improve the quality of life and care for residents of long-term care facilities.

The SMP program provides practical tips and information to help people on Medicare prevent, detect and report Medicare fraud which drains billions of US tax dollars each year.
