The Office of Aging and People with Disabilities (APD) provides services to older adults and people with disabilities. This includes opportunities for community living, employment, family support and long-term services. 

APD serves about 3,500 older adults who seek to remain in their homes through Oregon Project Independence; more than  35,000 older adults and people with disabilities pe​r month who receive long-term care services paid through Medicaid; about 212,000 people seeking Older Americans Act services; about 180,000 people in need of direct financial support services; and more than 43,000 individuals who receive a Social Security Disability determination. In addition, more than 44,000 people live in APD-licensed long-term care facilities. Additionally, individuals in Oregon make about 50,000 calls seeking to report abuse, neglect or request information and referral services from Adult Protective Services.

APD program units include the Aging and Disability Resource Connection (ADRC) of Oregon, a collaborative public-private partnership that streamlines consumer access to the aging and disability service delivery system. The ADRC is free and provides information and assistance that helps people make informed decisions about their care.

Employees from both APD local offices and Area Agencies on Aging throughout Oregon provide direct consumer services and determine eligibility of older adults and people with disabilities for services including Medicaid long-term care. ​
