The Aging & Disability Resource Center (ADRC) of Sheboygan County assures that individuals or their legal representatives who contact the ADRC receive accurate and unbiased information about public long-term care funding, and can request an assessment to determine functional and financial eligibility to receive these benefits.
Family Care and IRIS
Family Care and IRIS are publicly funded long-term care programs designed to keep individuals out of nursing homes or other institutions. These programs fund services to keep an individual independent in the community. Long-term care programs will also provide funding for assisted living facilities and nursing homes if this level of care is deemed necessary. A person must meet a target group in order to qualify. The target groups that Family Care and IRIS serve are adults with: developmental disabilities, physical disabilities, or the frail elderly. Once a target group is identified, there are two areas of eligibility: functional and financial. Individuals must be both financially and functionally eligible to receive these services. Contact the ADRC for more information about Family Care and IRIS.
