Representatives from the Dane County Department of Human Service Area Agency on Aging will help you to understand how to navigate the Aging Network of services for older adults in Dane County.  This information is vital to understanding how to access services and supports you may need in retirement. The presenters will share a broad overview of the aging services system, the vast array of services available, the entry points for accessing these services, and opportunities for you to stay actively engaged on every level throughout retirement. 

During the second part of this workshop, the Manager of the Aging & Disability Resource Center of Dane County will present an overview of ADRC services and resources at the beginning, middle, and end of your retirement journey. Your local ADRC is the single-entry point for publicly funded Long Term Care.  Staff at the ADRC are able to explain the functional and financial eligibility for these publicly funded programs.  You will leave with a better understanding of where to start your journey.
