Options Counseling

What is Options Counseling?


Option Counseling is an interactive decision-support process where individuals, family members and/or significant others are supported in their deliberations to determine appropriate long-term care choices in the context of the individual’s needs, preferences, values, and circumstances. Options Counseling is available to individuals who:


  • Do not know how to access long term services and supports

  • Request transition assistance from one living setting to another

  • Lack awareness of existing community resources and supports

  • Are referred to the counselor by a hospital, nursing home, assisted living, community-based service provider or other agency


Options Counseling is a free service. Individuals may access Options Counseling through self-referral.
