The Heart of Texas region was recently designated the Heart of Texas Aging and Disability Resource Center (ADRC) by the Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services (DADS) to assist individuals by coordinating access into the long-term support system.
The Heart of Texas ADRC is a trusted, friendly, and welcoming place that can provide unbiased information and assistance about local programs and resources as they relate to aging or living with a disability. ADRC staff and partners can help individuals, families and caregivers understand the various long-term care options available so the individual can continue to live within their community as long as possible.
The Heart of Texas ADRC serves older individuals, individuals of any age with disabilities, family caregivers, veterans, families with children with special needs, and other individuals planning for future long-term care services. Individuals of any income level in Bosque, Falls, Freestone, Hill, Limestone and McLennan counties are served by the Heart of Texas ADRC.
The following operating partners make up a broad-based coalition under a contract with the Heart of Texas Council of Governments to form and operate the Heart of Texas ADRC. Each of these partnering agencies provides appropriate services based on need and eligibility.
- Area Agency on Aging of the Heart of Texas (AAAHOT)
- Department of Aging and Disability Services (DADS)
- Department of Assistive and Rehabilitation Services (DARS)
- Heart of Central Texas Independent Living Center (HOCTIL)
- Heart of Texas 2-1-1 (HOT 2-1-1)
- Heart of Texas Region MHMR Center (HOTRMHMR)
In addition to the operating partners, a network of community partners, (including social service providers, for-profits and non-profits) receive referrals from the ADRC to provide services to eligible individuals.
