AGING AND DISABILITY RESOURCE CENTERS

Real independence means more than staying in your own home. It also means having a life outside your home.

Aging and Disability Resource Centers (ADRC) of San Francisco

The Department of Aging and Adult Services (DAAS) funds the Aging and Disability Resource Centers (ADRC), with 14 locations conveniently located throughout San Francisco. Coordination of the 14 ADRC sites is provided by the Institute on Aging.

The ADRC provides Information and Assistance services in various languages. It is recommended to call each site to determine which one has the language you are looking for. Languages included, but are not limited to: English, Spanish, Mandarin, Cantonese, Toishanese, Russian, Samoan, and American Sign Language. These services are provided to older adults age 60 and above, as well as younger people with disabilities age 18+.

The ADRC serves as a one-stop shop for community members to find assistance in accessing services and resources. The ADRC provides individuals with information so they will be more aware of their rights and assist community members to remain living independently in the community.

The ADRC will work closely with the DAAS Integrated Intake Unit and other San Francisco organizations to provide more efficient information and referral services to older adults as well as younger adults with disabilities.

Some of the services the ADRC can assist you with are:

  • Caregiver assistance and support
