Introduction & Instructions on How To Use the National Resource Center
The mission of the National Resource Center for Aging with Disability is to connect people with information about programs and organizations that can help them live healthier, more enjoyable lives. Our national database is designed to let users explore various organizations and agencies using search topic categories and/or keywords as well the option to limit the results to a specific state or states. Using this tool will allow you to find programs and resources in your area to support healthy aging with a disability.
You can also bookmark or “save” the agencies/organizations you identify as providing the services that best match your needs. To do this, click on the bookmark symbol next to the organization’s name. To view your bookmarks, click on ‘My Bookmarks’ tab at the top right of the navigation tool bar. They will also appear one right side of any organization’s page you view within the database. Please note: The bookmark function works best when using a Google Chrome web browser.
Database information is identified and compiled by staff at the Investigating Disability factors and promoting Environmental Access for Healthy Living (IDEAL) Rehabilitation Research and Training Center (RRTC) at the University of Michigan. The resources and programs on this site have been vetted or are currently being vetted by the IDEAL RRTC research team.
