The North Central Texas Aging and Disability Resource Center (NCTADRC) is funded by Texas Health and Human Services and led by the North Central Texas Council of Governments, with support from our many partner agencies.
Its purpose is to serve as a resource connection, rather than to provide direct services. However, it does offer one direct service program: Lifespan Respite. The Lifespan Respite program provides temporary assistance to family caregivers who need a break from their caregiving responsibilities, don’t qualify for other agencies’ respite programs, and can’t afford to pay privately for respite.
We’re familiar with a broad range of federal, state and local programs. We have specialized knowledge of the following programs.
Medicaid waiver programs, such as STAR+PLUS, Home and Community Services, and Community Living Assistance and Support Services
Medicare, Medicare Savings Programs, and Medicare Low-Income Subsidies
SNAP (formerly known as food stamps)
Area Agency on Aging programs for people age 60 and over and their family caregivers
Veterans Administration programs
Subsidized housing for low-income older and disabled persons
We target people who are returning to their homes from nursing homes, assisted living facilities, hospitals, and rehabilitation centers.
Our services are made available at no cost to people with disabilities, their caregivers, and people who want to plan in advance of need, regardless of their income.
We have a satellite office, located at the Denton County Veterans Service Office, 400 S. Carroll Blvd Suite 200, Denton. We're available on Wednesdays by appointment. To schedule an appointment, contact Jackie Helmer at email@example.com or 817-695-9142.
No appointments are necessary to meet with us in our Arlington office. However, you may want to call ahead at 1-855-937-2372 to make sure someone will be available to meet with you. Sometimes our work takes us away from our offices.
