Aging & Disability Resources

LifeTime is one of over 600 national and 16 Indiana Area Agencies on Aging, a network addressing the needs of older adults, persons with disabilities, and their caregivers. We serve Dearborn, Ohio, Ripley, Switzerland, and Jefferson counties in Southeastern Indiana.  LifeTime’s Aging and Disability Resource Center (ADRC) is part of the INConnect Alliance, a statewide network that connects consumers with the support and resources they need, including:


Information & Assistance

LifeTime maintains a database of health and human resource programs, assists individuals in accessing public benefits, and makes referrals to programs within LifeTime and other human service agencies.


Community Resource Library

We also provide an on-site resource library that contains numerous books, videos, and pamphlets about a wealth of issues related to family caregiving and other subjects of interest to our target population.  The library is open to the public and any of the resources are available to be checked out.  Computers with Internet access are also available for individuals to use during regular library hours: 

Monday through Friday
8:00am to 4:30pm.



Options Counseling

Our Options Counselors assist individuals and their caregivers in exploring various alternatives to long-term institutional care by offering information pertinent to each unique situation.  If a more in-depth assessment of need is warranted, our experienced Options Counselors are available for in-home visits to discuss a wide range of possible options designed to foster the individual’s independence.  Some of the topics we may be able to assist with include:
    •    Personal Care
    •    Respite care

    •    And others as needed and as available.


Home Care Management

Our certified Home Care Managers partner with older adults, persons with disabilities, and their caregivers to identify their individualized needs and to access funding for in-home services, with the goal of delaying institutional placement. With an eye always toward safety and the quality of life, our Home Care Managers connect individuals, families, and caregivers to a network of resources that may be available to them.

Legal Assistance 

The legal assistance program may provide individuals who are at least 60 year of age with help in dealing with certain legal issues. The goal of the program is to assist older adults with understanding and maintaining their rights, to assist older adults in exercising their rights, to help older adults benefit from available services, and to resolve disputes. The program also promotes the need for lifetime planning through the understanding and the use of advance directives.


Long Term Care Ombudsman
This program informs long term care facility residents of their rights under federal and state law, encourages residents to voice their complaints/concerns, and intervenes if the complaint/concern cannot be resolved.
