Information and Assistance Services and Aging & Disability Resource Connection (ADRC)
At MCOACS we provide the information and assistance our elders need to maintain independence with dignity, no matter what life hands at them. We are always happy to sit down for a one-on-one session with people who need assistance, advocacy, networking, or just need to talk. For example, people sometimes need help filling out social security papers, public housing applications, and others. ADRC is the first place to go to get accurate, unbiased information on all aspects of life related to aging or living with a disability.
