Aging and Disability Resource Center

Aging & Disability Resource Center (ADRC) :   

In partnership with the Governor’s Office of Elderly Affairs and the Department of Health and Hospitals, and in conjunction with the statewide initiative, the Aging & Disability Resource Center links disabled adults, senior citizens, and caregivers to the information they need to improve their health, independence, and quality of life.

The Aging & Disability Resource Center (ADRC) recognizes the need for greater information and education on services for seniors and adults with disabilities and will be providing outreach as well as inviting community collaborative on initiatives from both the public and private sector. JCOA’s ADRC serves the parishes of Jefferson, St. Charles, St. James, and St. John the Baptist.

The ADRC serves as the access point for information on long-term services and support systems and will provide information on public and private programs and promote awareness of community based service options.

Situations frequently arise where people may feel overwhelmed and know they need answers. They realize they need help, but they aren’t quite sure what questions to ask. The ADRC is a place for them to call and speak to a live person for assistance and information about the vast inventory of available healthcare services. Here they can find information as well as get personal assistance in applying for services and programs, help with completing applications, or obtaining more in-depth educational material.

The ADRC is the central place where you can go for person-to-person assistance and counseling to help make the best, most informed decisions and choices for good, healthy, living. It is your guide to navigate a confusing arena to find answers.

If you need help, call us at (504) 888-5880 or, for those caregivers living out of state, call us toll free at (800) 635-1437.
