If you are age 60 or older, want to remain at home, but need some assistance, Choices for Independence may be for you. Choices for Independence will help you understand your options to continue living at home, with the focus on how you want to live. A Licensed Social Worker will visit with you to discuss your plans for the future and help you assess your situation. You will receive information on services available in your community and help developing a plan.
What are the benefits of Choices for Independence?
Choices for Independence recognizes that accepting assistance might feel like a loss of independence for some individuals, even though the help may be necessary in order to continue living independently. We work with individuals, understanding they are independent, capable people, who have made their own decisions and determined their life direction for decades. Based on the needs identified by the Licensed Social Worker, it is the participant who determines what services they would like to try and how often they would like to receive the assistance. The individual may also invite family members into the process as well.
