Aging & Disability


Aging and Disability Resource Centers (ADRCs) seek to address the frustrations many older adults, people with disabilities, and family members experience when trying to learn about and access long-term services and supports in cities across the United States. ADRCs are an important part of the No Wrong Door (NWD) system model. A collaboration between the Centers for Independent Living, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), and the Veterans Health Administration, the NWD initiative supports states working to streamline access to long-term services and supports for older adults, people with disabilities, and their families.

Contact information for many ADRCs can be found through the Eldercare Locator., is a USA government's portal for information on Alzheimer's disease and related dementias care, research, and support.


The National Task Group in Intellectual and Dementia Practices (NTG) was organized in late 2010  when the American Association on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities, the American Academy of Developmental Medicine and Dentistry, along with the Rehabilitation Research and Training Center on Aging with Developmental Disabilities-Lifespan Health and Function at the University of Illinois at Chicago and the Center on Excellence in Aging at the University at Albany, combined their efforts and created the National Task Group on Intellectual Disabilities and Dementia Practices.   Shortly afterwards  in 2011, the President signed the National Alzheimer's Project Act (NAPA) which is expected to lead to the development of a coherent and coordinated national strategy on dealing with Alzheimer's disease in the United States.
