The Door County Senior Center has been providing services to our local community since 1987. Thanks to the hard work of so many, the Senior Center has expanded and is now the Aging and Disability Resource Center (ADRC) of Door County. The ADRC is moving to its new facility in the completely renovated Door County Highway shop located next to the current center located at 916 N. 14th Avenue in Sturgeon Bay. The new facility creates greater opportunities for the ADRC staff to fulfill their mission to our Door County residents, both as a resource hub for older adults, adults living with an intellectual or physical disability and their families but also as a destination for residents to stay engaged and active in their own community.
The new Door County Aging and Disability Resource Center (ADRC) and Emergency Services building broke ground in May of 2017 and it echoes the stonework and strong lines of the existing architecture, paying homage to the original 80-year-old County Highway Shop it once was.
Other features of the new Aging and Disability Resource Center (ADRC) building include: three multi-purpose rooms, a caregiver library and support group room, a banquet hall and kitchen with natural light, an expanded fitness room, a sweeping new lobby and gathering space with a doubled sided fireplace and confidential professional offices.
A planned public open house is set for Thursday, January 18th from 4:00 pm until 6:00 pm at the new Door County Aging and Disability Resource Center and Emergency Services building. There will be staff and volunteers on site and stationed throughout the ADRC portion of the building to answer any questions individuals might have.
The physical move will take place the entire week of Monday, January 22nd through Friday, January 26th in preparation for the ADRC grand opening on Monday, January 29. During the move the ADRC will be closed. For additional information about the services and programs the ADRC provides please contact the ADRC at (920)746-2372 or email at ADRC@co.door.wi.us.
