Program Design
Overall Model The Oklahoma Aging and Disabilities Resource Consortium’s (ADRC) mission is to provide the public with information and options regarding long term support, planning and decision-making. The ADRC vision is person-centered and integrated long term care systems that promote independence, individual choice and respect. The ADRC is operated statewide by Area Agencies on Aging and Centers for Independent Living. The goal of the Oklahoma ADRC program is to provide all Oklahoma citizens, regardless of income, a "no wrong door" system for information and options benefit counseling regarding long-term care decision-making and planning. Oklahoma plans to develop a person-centered information system accessible to the public, professionals and target populations offered in alternate formats. They will also ensure that caregivers and care receivers are supported in a way that honors individual choice by providing training to I&A specialists.
Target Populations Persons 60+ and people with disabilities
Streamlining Access Plans Oklahoma will streamline access to services by creating a standardized and efficient entry process for public and private pay services. They also plan to further develop formal linkages between and among the public and private providers of long-term care supports by creating MOUs and other formal agreements.
Program Expansion and Sustainability Oklahoma ADRCs are currently statewide.
Options Counseling As a 2010- 2012 Options Counseling grantee Oklahoma is collaborating with the Administration on Community Living to create national minimum standards for options counseling as well as developing statewide standards. Draft state standards will be tested in at least one area beginning in October 2011.
