Community Action Partnership’s Aging and Disability Resource Center/ Area Agency on Aging (ADRC/AAA) has been officially designated by the Idaho Commission on Aging (ICOA) as the ADRC/AAA for Clearwater, Idaho, Latah, Lewis and Nez Perce Counties. CAP’s ADRC/AAA is part of a nationwide network and one of six ADRC/AAA’s in Idaho created through the Older Americans Act.
Our hope is to realize Aging in abundance by eliminating economic poverty, poverty of meaning and poverty of relationship.
The North Central Idaho ADRC/AAA is designed to streamline access to long-term care information for people of all ages, incomes and disabilities. Our goals as an ADRC/AAA are:
- To create a person-centered, community-based environment that promotes independence and dignity for all individuals;
- To provide easy access to information to assist consumers in exploring a full range of long-term support options and planning;
- To provide resources and services that support the range of needs for family caregivers in planning and support.
North Central Idaho ADRC/AAA programs provide information and assistance to individuals utilizing public or private resources, to professionals seeking assistance on behalf of their clients and to individuals planning for their future long-term care needs.
Our intent is to provide leadership that encourages planning for present and future long-term care needs to help ensure that older Americans and their families have the information and assistance they need to make informed decisions and choices about life. Life care choices help families care for their loved ones, help people stay in their homes, and provide care options other than nursing home facilities.
