Aging and Disability Resource Center

The Aging and Disability Resource Center (ADRC) is your front door to all of the services, supports and long-term care expertise that Direction Home Akron Canton has to offer. Whatever you or your loved one is struggling with, we are here for you. We’re ready to listen, and we’re excited to help get a long-term care plan in place for you or your loved one.

What Does the ADRC Do?

We provide information, assistance and referrals to older adults and individuals of all ages with disabilities. First, we conduct a telephone evaluation (at no cost) to assist you in identifying your long-term care needs and options. Next, if needed, we will arrange a free in-person assessment with one of the Agency's Long-Term Care Nurse Consultants.

Call the ADRC at 877.770.5558

What’s the phone number for home-delivered meals? Am I eligible for help? What services are out there for me? Whatever your question, the ADRC can direct you to an answer. Your call can result in:

  • Over-the-phone information and referral
  • Information mailed to you
  • A scheduled assessment to determine eligibility for an Agency program, a nursing facility placement or other long-term care options
