Aging and Disability Resource Centers (ADRCs) serve the general public and offer information and assistance on issues affecting older people, people with disabilities and their families.

The Family Care benefit is available through Managed Care Organizations (MCOs) in a growing number of counties. (Map of service areas.)

MCOs serve people in three primary target groups who have a long-term care condition expected to last for more than 90 days. The three Family Care target groups are:

  1. Frail Older Adults (65 years or older)

  2. People with Physical Disabilities (18 years or older)

  3. People with Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities (18 years or older)

    (ADRCs and MCOs can begin planning for children with physical, intellectual/developmental or intellectual disabilities prior to their 18th birthday.)

People with dementia and people with a terminal condition may also be eligible for Family Care.

As of July 1, 2014, there were 41,397 people enrolled in Family Care. View current enrollment data.
