CHOICE provides personalized referrals for senior housing, senior care, and in-home
care services by matching your specific needs with the most suitable resources in
your area. From the options that CHOICE defines for you, you can either have a CHOICE
Housing & Care Advisor accompany you on your visits to these providers or you can contact
them on your own. If it's in-home services you are needing, CHOICE can be there
for the first meeting with the provider, too.
Working with CHOICE, you'll have the confidence that you have all the right information
to make educated decisions. Whether you're choosing to remain in your own home with
in-home services, move to a senior community or need financial advice, CHOICE is
there to help.
How we work
CHOICE exists because the options available to seniors in our community are vast
and ever changing. By working with an Advisor, you will receive a tailored list
of options that appropriately match your needs and interests.
Our funding comes from the senior housing and care industries. A referral fee is
paid to CHOICE when we successfully help you arrange for services.
We are an unbiased, helpful support for seniors and their families. Our contractual
agreements within the various senior housing and care types are identical. This
ensures that our referrals are based on appropriateness and not on the fee received
by the agency.
We're there every step of the way.
Step 1: We receive your request for help by phone or via email.
Step 2: We follow-up on your request to assess your needs, whether
in person or by phone, by asking a series of questions. We gather information about
your specific and unique situation, the level of support or services you require,
financial resources and your preference of location.
Step 3: We'll define the most appropriate options for your particular
situation. We can provide you with a written list of options that you can follow
up on, or we can contact the communities on your behalf. With your permission, we
can even discuss your needs with potential providers, and contact the providers
on your behalf.
Step 4: When you decide which services and support you need, we
can go with you to visit providers or be there when the provider visits you in your
home. We will always be available by phone or in person to answer your questions.
Step 5: We follow up with you every step of the way.
What people are saying about CHOICE
"I'm not sure how people would be able to consider all of the options without the
help of CHOICE. I'm thankful that you listened so carefully to our needs to be sure
we got information that was relevant and specific to our needs."
-- Christine and Bob
"The idea of moving from our home of forty years was daunting until I talked to
CHOICE. I may not have moved quickly, but I moved in a way that was comfortable
for me, and I knew I was supported through this difficult and very big move. Without
my husband here to help me make decisions, it gave me peace of mind to know someone
was looking after my best interests. Thank you, CHOICE, for being like family to
"When I finally made the decision to no longer live alone, I had no idea what to
do next. CHOICE came to my rescue! I was not only given several excellent options,
but I was also given the information I needed to make a wise decision for myself.
I'm particularly grateful that you helped me with the sale of my home, and even
made sure my move went smoothly! And thank you as well, for taking me to look at
my options. I am thankful that you let me make the choice on my own, but I'm equally
grateful that you were there to listen to me."
"CHOICE not only saved us time, you also helped us focus our search to communities
that would really work for my mom. This helped us make a decision quicker and made
the entire process much less stressful for us."
"I tried making calls on my own, but the more information I gathered, the more confused
I got about the entire process. I happened to be with my mother, visiting her doctor
and I found a CHOICE Guide in the waiting room. When I asked my doctor if he knew
about your agency, he told me about the good experiences he's had in recommending
people to CHOICE. When he told us about CHOICE, I thought, "It's too good to be
true!" Your services are invaluable."
"I was so fortunate to have your company recommended to me. Within a couple hours
of calling the "800" number, I heard from you. You are knowledgeable, caring and
compassionate and immediately both my Dad and I were comfortable with you. What
a relief to have all your information and services available to us. I am very grateful
for all you have done and have good feelings about my Dad's new home."
