We can help you cut through some of the “red tape”.

Options Counseling

Our Options Counselors help you create a care plan which meets your needs and preferences including:  where you would like to live, what type of care you may need in the future, who you may want to involve in your planning, and other considerations.  We do this by collecting information from you, assessing your eligibility for various programs, and working with our community partners.

Our staff can provide residents with emergency assistance for utilities, rent, minor home modifications, transportation for medical appointments, and other emergencies.
