An Aging and Disability Resource Center (ADRC) is a central resource for information and assistance about all aspects of aging and living with a disability. Created by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services, ADRCs provide access to a wide range of programs and services for families with aging or disabled loved ones. ADCRC staff can help individuals understand and explore the various long-term care services that are available to them, help them apply for services, programs, and benefits, and access publicly-funded long-term care providers. Individuals living in all counties in the state of Wisconsin have access to a local ADRC.
A primary objective of the ADRC is to match consumers with services that they need. These services may include in-home care, housekeeping, errands, home repairs and modifications, transportation, home-delivered meals, housing, assisted living, financial assistance, legal assistance, mental health treatment, alcohol and drug abuse treatment, respite care, and adaptive equipment. Benefits specialists can help individuals resolve issues related to health care, insurance, and other benefits that they may have difficulty navigating. Staff also can help determine if you are eligible for public or private funding for long-term care, as needed.
ADRC is also an information resource for individuals in need of emergency services, such as those who are at risk of abuse or neglect, losing housing, or going without necessary utilities such as heat, electricity, or water. The organization has the connections and resources in order to avoid what could ultimately be a dangerous situation for an older Wisconsin resident.
At Boller & Vaughan, we are all too familiar with the rampant abuse and neglect that often occurs in understaffed, underfunded, overcrowded nursing homes. We have investigated many allegations of abuse and neglect, including those that have resulted in serious injuries to elderly residents, thus giving rise to a claim for damages against the responsible person and facility. Allow us to look into the background of your situation, evaluate the many options that may be available to you, and help you decide what move to make next.

We live in Friendship, Wisconsin, and Boller & Vaughan came to our doorstep to discuss our mother’s wrongful death claim on a Saturday morning. Not only were we pleased with the large recovery, we were so thankful to have lawyers who were willing to explain to us every twist and turn along the way. It is great to know there is a law firm that will fight for the rights of elderly people all over Wisconsin.
Mr. Boller and Ms. Vaughan were incredible in working on my case and my daughter’s case. I was out of work and in the hospital with a new baby. Mr. Boller and Ms. Vaughan protected our rights and it was a pleasure to work with them. I hope never to be in another motor vehicle accident, however, if I am and I am injured, I will contact Boller & Vaughan immediately.
I was referred to Michelle through a friend. I have never had a better experience. It took a little over a year to get my settlement but the staff there stayed in constant contact and kept me in the loop. Oh, and Michelle actually got me MORE money than we discussed. I will refer anyone to this firm. Words cannot do justice the thanks that I have for Michelle and her staff (Mary especially) thank you guys so much!
After my husband died as a result of a motor vehicle accident, Boller & Vaughan spent countless hours talking with me, meeting with me in person, and making sure that I was okay. The drunk driver who hit us did not have any insurance, and we had to make a claim through our own insurance. Boller & Vaughan was fantastic at explaining the law to me and the handling of our claims.
After my son was injured in a daycare setting, Ms. Vaughan took the time to thoroughly investigate our case and my son’s injuries. Michele was approachable and had answers to our questions. Talking with her helped to relieve many of our anxieties.
