Creating Successful Aging and Disability Partnerships
Implementing an ADRC requires strategic partnerships at both the state and local levels, as well as solid working agreements among state agencies, local health and human services authorities, service providers, and other private partners. The central partnership between the aging and disability networks provides the foundation for developing effective working relationships among aging and disability organizations stakeholders at all levels. This training, developed in collaboration with the National Council on Independent Living (NCIL), reviews the importance and fundamentals of successful partnerships, describes the aging and disability service systems and opportunities for collaboration, and presents examples of successful partnerships that have been established among aging and disability organizations. The training also highlights “lessons learned” about establishing and maintaining effective partnerships among aging and disability service providers.
