Welcome to the Hawaii Aging and Disability Resource Center
The Hawaii Aging and Disability Resource Center (ADRC) helps older adults, individuals with disabilites, and family caregivers find options for long term supports and services available to them in the State of Hawaii. The ADRC is a highly visible and trusted source where people of all incomes and ages can turn for information. ADRC staff will help to determine if you are eligible for government paid programs, assist you in finding providers you may pay for yourself, and work with you to develop an individual plan for meeting your future long-term care needs. The assistance is paid for by the State and Counties (at no cost to you).
The Feasibility of a Long-Term Services & Supports Social Insurance Program for Hawaii
The aging of the population requires a careful consideration on the funding and delivery of long-term care. Most people do not have private long-term care coverage; few people can afford private long-term care insurance, and private health insurance does not cover long-term care. Policy notes that offers recommendations for funding long-term care services and supports for Hawaii residents are located in the Reports and Publications tab.
