> Options Counseling Program

The Options Counseling Program provides unbiased information, resources and decision-support for adults with a disability or people age 60 and older. The program’s purpose is to assist people in making care options for themselves or their loved ones and to determine a plan for present or future needs. This short-term service has no income or need-based restrictions. This service is available to people who reside at home, in nursing homes, rehabilitation facilities, hospitals, or to caregivers living locally or out of state. Options counselors can meet with people by phone, email, virtually, or in person.

Options Counseling services are available statewide, through 11 regional Aging and Disability Resource Consortiums (ADRC), comprised of agencies from the elder network, the disability network, and other community-based partners working in concert to ensure efficient access to services and supports.
