Support an Aging and Disability Resource Center

Right now the Rhode Island House of Representatives Finance Committee is considering legislation that would establish a robust Aging and Disabilities Resource Center (ADRC) that would help thousands of older Rhode Islanders and their family caregivers with options to allow those aging into disability to stay in their home instead of costly long term care institutions, such as nursing homes. 

If enacted the bill would redirect existing funds toward an ADRC that would have:

  • A statewide-toll-free information number
  • An informational website
  • Personal options counseling and links  to long-term care screening tools.

 

There also is a provision for community education and outreach so Rhode Islanders are aware that the ADRC is an accessible and reliable resource.

Urge the House Finance Committe to support House Bill H-7172.
