The Aging and Disability Resource Centers (ADRC), provided through the Kansas Department for Aging and Disability Services (KDADS), serve every community in Kansas through the local Area Agency on Aging. We will assist older adults, individuals with disabilities, their family members and caregivers in finding information about long-term supports and services. The ADRCs will serve as a resource for both individuals eligible for publicly-funded services and supports and individuals with private resources.
A call in center has been established for your convenience. If you need Information and Assistance, please call 1-855-200-ADRC (2372). Or email our office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
