SC Appalachian Council of Governments: Upstate Aging and Disability Resource Center Website

Posted on: October 4th, 2012 by Kate Humphrey

The South Carolina Appalachian Council of Governments (ACOG) developed the Upstate Aging and Disability Resource Center Website to supplement and update traditional methods of communicating with consumers and caregivers. Three main groups of beneficiaries—those in need of care, care providers, and community advocates—use the website to access information on long-term care and referrals to resources such as transportation, financial assistance, food assistance, and housing in each
county in the region. The site also contains a calendar of events and application information for assistance programs. ACOG staff designed, tested, and produced the site to be accessible to people with disabilities, enabling visually impaired or physically limited visitors to easily navigate the site.
