Aging and Disability Resource Center
Information, Referral and Assistance
The Area Agency on Aging District 7 (AAA7) is designated as an Aging and Disability Resource Network with staff available to assist the community with information about resources in their community.
AAA7 Information and Referral (I&R) Specialists are responsible for five core functions:
Information, Referral and Awareness
Advice and Assistance
Eligibility Determination for Programs
Person-Centered Transition Support
The AAA7 is committed to its role as a resource where community members of all ages, disabilities and income levels can turn for information and assistance with long-term living services and support options.
Staff attempt to provide as much information as possible regarding Agency services as well as additional resources in the community should the Agency not have a program or services that would be available or appropriate. Eligibility and wait lists can occur with some programs and services. I&R Specialists attempt to provide callers with reliable information and helpful assistance in determining what options and choices might be available for them in the community in order to make the best decisions about their own personal or family needs for the present and future. I&R Specialists will assist callers as best they can, but callers should be aware that eligibility requirements stand for some programs as well as wait lists. Should this occur, staff will help callers with identifying other resources or options that may be available.
