“I am honored to serve as coordinator of the city’s OADC which provides resources, referrals and information to empower older adults, adults with disabilities, and their caregivers to live a safe and successful life in our community,” said Alli Woosley, OADC’s coordinator. “The COVID-19 pandemic has been difficult for this vulnerable population. Likewise, many service providers have had to suspend operations, and/or adjust their services to remote or virtual offerings. Our Resources Guide is full of up-to-date resources to help our aging and disabled population connect with the services they need to safely age in place.”
The OADC Resources Guide will be updated on a bi-annual basis. To submit a new service, edit a current listing, or request assistance with a printed copy, contact Alli Woosley at [email protected] or 502.574.5092. </…….
