Welcome to the North Central Texas Aging and Disability Resource Center

The North Central Texas Aging and Disability Resource Center (NCTADRC) is funded by Texas Health and Human Services and a program of the North Central Texas Council of Governments.

The NCTADRC provides information about and referrals to long-term service and support programs (like in-home care) for people who live in Collin, Denton, Ellis, Erath, Hood, Hunt, Johnson, Kaufman, Navarro, Palo Pinto, Parker, Rockwall, Somervell, and Wise counties. We help people find services through other agencies rather than pay for services directly.

However, we have one direct service program: Lifespan Respite.  It provides temporary help to unpaid 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, including STAR+PLUS, Home and Community Services (HCS), and Community Living Assistance and Support Services (CLASS)

  • Community Attendant Services and other Health and Human Services Commission in-home programs

  • Medicare, Medicare Savings Programs, and Medicare Low-Income Subsidies

  • SNAP (formerly known as food stamps)

  • Area Agency on Aging programs for people aged 60 and over and their family caregivers

  • Subsidized housing for people with limited incomes

  • Public transportation services

  • Home-delivered meals

Through our Options Counseling program, we help people who are leaving rehabilitation facilities access community-based services.

Our services are free to people who are living with disabilities, their caregivers, and people who want to plan in advance of need, regardless of their income.
