Options Counseling provides guidance to individuals as they make informed choices about long-term services and supports. This service helps people think through the pros and cons of the various options while taking into consideration their situation, values, resources and preferences. The Options Counselor can also assist with making an Action Plan for the individual to implement.
Options Counseling may be helpful 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
- want to plan for future long-term services and supports needs
Options Counseling continues to expand in North Carolina. To find out if an Options Counselor is available in your county, contact the program manager, Jan Moxley.
