About Us

LifeLong Links™ is Iowa’s network of Aging and Disability Resource Centers, whose purpose is to expand and enhance the state’s information and referral resources for older adults, adults with disabilities, veterans and caregivers as they begin to think about and plan for long-term independent living.

Administered by the Iowa Department on Aging and enriched by a collaborative partnership with Iowa’s six Area Agencies on Aging, LifeLong Links is modeled on the “no wrong door” approach, meaning it is available to any Iowan in need of home-based and community services and is accessible through physical locations across Iowa, a toll-free call center (1-866-468-7887) and a website (www.lifelonglinks.org).

With a mission to help Iowans achieve their personal goals for independence and full participation in their community, LifeLong Links provides information about topics and services and connects individuals to local service providers in an effort to support the philosophy of self-directed care.
