Options Counseling

 

Options Counseling is an interactive decision-support process by which individuals and families receive guidance in their deliberations to make informed choices about Long-Term Services and Supports (LTSS).

An Options Counselor is available to talk with you, your family members, caregivers and/or significant others about various long-term services and support options to fit your needs and preferences and to guide you through what can be a difficult and complicated decision making process. The Options Counselor can help you to weigh the pros and cons of each decision and help you to develop a realistic “Plan B” if additional services and supports are needed.

By calling the Council on Aging, individuals and caregivers receive free, unbiased information about the range of long-term care support options and resources available to help pay for them.
