Mountain Empire Older Citizens is an
Aging and Disability Resource Center (ADRC).
ADRCs serve as single points of entry into the long-term care system
for older adults and people with disabilities and are sometimes
referred to as "one stop shops" or "no wrong door" systems.
ADRCs address many of the frustrations people experience when
trying to find needed information, services, and supports.
ADRCs provide information about the full range of options
that are available, coordinate aging and disability services,
provide objective information and assistance, empower people to make
informed decisions about their long term supports, and serve as
convenient entry points for all public and private long term care
programs and support services. MEOC works in partnership with
the Junction Center for Independent Living and a host of partners in
the area in this effort.
