Resources and Referrals

 

FTAAAD's mission is to assist older adults and adults with disabilities with the information and services that promote quality of life and independence.  FTAAAD's Information & Assistance line is the perfect starting point for these resources.

 

The SHIP and SMP departments help callers with Medicare and other insurance-related questions, and the FTAAAD Service Directory compiles region-wide resources that are available by county in dozens of categories.
