“Options Counseling” is a person-centered process embraced by our staff that focuses on working with individuals’ values and preferences. Through Options Counseling, our staff works with older Vermonters to help them decide what supports they need to live where they want to with dignity and choice.
Seniors and those who help to care for them are often not aware of all the services and supports that are available. Our staff will explore your options for housing, in-home supports, transportation, public benefits, nutrition, and caregiving. Together, we help you make the best choice for your unique situation.
Options counselors receive specialized training to help them think “outside the box” in supporting what is best for your unique situation and to make the choices that best meet your needs.
Once you agree to your plan, CVCOA options counselors connect you to the services that meet your needs. If more long term support is needed, Options Counseling may result in a referral to our care coordination team.
