Support Programs

Our support programs consist of our Elder Benefits Specialist and Family Caregiver Support Program. The Elder Benefits Specialist assists people over 60-years-old in receiving benefits that they are eligible for. The Family Caregiver Support program provides support and assistance to caregivers that are caring for a family member over 60.

The Elder Benefit Specialist offers counseling, assistance and advocacy in the area of public benefits, health insurance, and consumer law, to people who are 60 or older. Benefit Specialists are trained and their casework supervised by attorneys who specialize in elder law and public benefits.

Elder Benefit Specialists assist with legal needs concerning public benefits such as Medicare, Medicare Part D, and a variety of other issues. The Elder Benefit Specialist also assists with grievance and appeals procedures and can act as an appointed representative.

The Elder Benefit Specialist can be reached at the Aging & Disability Resource Center of Douglas County, located in the Government Center, at 1316 North 14th Street, Suite 327, Superior, Wisconsin, on Monday and Wednesday, or at Senior Connections on Tuesday and Thursday.  Normal office hours at both locations are 8:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
