What is Options Counseling?
Options Counseling is an interactive, short-term decision-support process to assist consumers of any income (elders age 60 or over, or individuals over the age of 18 with any disability) and their family members, caregivers and/or significant others to make an informed choice about long term services, supports, and setting.
Primary Consumers Seen by Options Counselors:
Consumers in hospitals and rehabilitation facilities, at risk of discharge to a long term care facility.
Consumers in a long term care facility seeking to return to a community setting.
Consumers in community settings and who are at-risk of admission to a long term care facility who prefer to remain in the community with services.
