Aging and Disability Resources

Are you disabled by aphasia stroke? Did you know there is an “Aging and Disability Resources” office in your county? Call 1-800-677-1116 or go to http://www.eldercare.gov to find the local location.

From Leslie Rigg, representative of the Northwest Regional Council, the Peace Stroke Support Group learned ADR serves as a resource hub of information about in-home care, medical information, caregiver support, housing, residential care options and general resources. Need to know about property tax exemption, a power of attorney, a living well, an advance directive, transportation, disabilities parking permits . . . Give them a try. They should be able to inform you and refer you to the right people.
