About This Service
Options counselors assist elders and their families in making informed decisions about the services and settings that best meet their long-term care needs, and which allow them to live as independently as possible in the setting of their choice.
Elders and their families meet with an options counselor for short-term counseling and receive unbiased information about a range of long-term care support options — including options for nursing homes and rehab facilities, and at-home services such as personal care, transportation and medication management — and are informed of the resources available to help pay for services.
The program also provides decision-making support to identify next steps in the process, and help in connecting with services if needed.
