Nevada's Care Connection:

Database Inclusion and Exclusion Policy

Nevada's Care Connection envisions empowering consumers to make personal decisions, plans, and social connections that allow them to maintain their independence as long as possible.

The Nevada Care Connection project is a network of community-based sites, also known as Aging and Disability Resource Centers (ADRC) with the common purpose of providing:

  • Information and Referral,
  • Assistance and Advocacy also known as Options Counseling and
  • Eligibility and Access or Benefits Counseling

The focus is to connect Nevada's elders, persons with a disability, their families, care givers and anyone wanting to plan for their future long-term support needs, into public programs that are geared towards maintaining one's independence in their own community.

The purpose of the resource database is to catalog community service providers and services that serve the ADRC target population and maintain current and accurate information in order to connect our consumers with needed or wanted services.

In order to maintain the integrity of the information and assistance component of Nevada's Care Connection, the following guidelines have been established to determine which organization services may be included in the resource database. Inclusion in the Nevada Care Connection database is free.

The following criteria were based on the inclusion/exclusion criteria provided by the Alliance for Information and Referral Systems Standards.
