Options Counseling

A major goal of the ADRC is to promote informed decision-making about long term care needs and supports. Options Counseling is a process that may include multiple contacts.  Relationship building is important to establish trust and to understand an individual’s preferences and needs.  An Options Counselor can help you think about the choices available and guide you to information on various topics.  We often think about income, insurance, or housing when we plan for our future, but physical and emotional health and satisfaction with your role in your family and your community is just as important.

Access to Service:  Contact the 24-Hour Senior HELP LINE at 602-264-4357, or visit the virtual Options Counseling section of the Arizona ADRC at www.azlinks.gov.

Under the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Area Agency on Aging, Region One, must make a reasonable accomodation to allow a person with a disability to take part in a program, service or activity. For example, this means if necessary, the Area Agency on Aging must provide sign language interpreters for people who are deaf, a wheelchair accessible location, or enlarged print materials. It also means that the Area Agency on Aging will take any other reasonable action that allows you to take part in and understand a program or activity, including making reasonable changes to an activity. If you believe that you will not understand or take part in a program or activity because of your disability, please let us know of your disability needs in advance if at all possible. Please contact the Area Agency on Aging, Region One, at (602) 264-2255.
