Elder Care


The Arc Mid-South provides care to adults ages 65 and older through the Aging Commission of the Mid-South. This program enables us to assist seniors in Shelby, Fayette, Tipton, and Lauderdale counties.

The Elderly and Adult Disability Services program is an approved provider of CHOICES. We are a network of home and community based services designed to assist the elderly and adults with disabilities, enabling them to live independently for as long as possible. Our program is built on a solid reputation of providing quality service to each and every individual.
