Aging and Disability Resource Consortium (ADRC) / Options Counseling
The Merrimack Valley Aging and Disability Resource Consortium (ADRC) is a collaborative project between NILP and Elder Services of the Merrimack Valley that has a “no wrong door” entry point of service for people with disabilities and elders looking to access community based long term services. Centralized information & referral, intake and service coordination are streamlined between the agencies.
A specialized service provided under the ADRC is Options Counseling. Options Counseling is an interactive, short-term decision-support process that involves providing individuals with information about the full range of public and private resources, services, and settings available in the community.
