Options Counseling Program

At WestMass ElderCare, we’re here to help you navigate the important decisions you make regarding your living arrangements and support services as you age. We understand that these choices can be overwhelming and filled with uncertainty, but don’t worry! Our knowledgeable Options Counselors are ready to provide guidance and assistance every step of the way.

Are you wondering if you can continue living safely and independently within your community? Perhaps you’re contemplating whether a nursing home, assisted living facility, supportive housing, or another living environment might be the best fit for you. We’re here to address these questions and explore the available options together.

One of the main concerns you may have is identifying the services and assistive devices or home modifications that can support you in maintaining your independence at home. Our Options Counselors are well-versed in these matters and can provide information on the various resources and solutions available to you.

Speaking of resources, we understand that financial considerations play a significant role in decision-making. That’s why we can help you determine if your current insurance covers any services or home modifications. In case it doesn’t, we can explore funding options available to support you.

Our Options Counseling program is a personalized and friendly process designed with your needs in mind. You can reach out to us via phone or schedule an in-person counseling session. During our conversation, we’ll discuss your personal goals, your ability to function, your support network, and your financial situation. By gathering this information, we can comprehensively explore all the service and funding options available to you.

Rest assured, our approach is completely unbiased. Our aim is to provide you with the information and support you need to make the best decisions for yourself. As part of our commitment to your well-being, we offer written material regarding long-term care options, ensuring you have access to valuable resources even beyond our counseling sessions.

We understand that connecting with resources can sometimes feel like a daunting task. That’s why we’re here to assist you in any way we can. If you need help navigating the system or finding the right services and supports, we’ll be right by your side. And once you’ve accessed the resources, we won’t leave you hanging. We’ll make sure to follow up with you to ensure your needs were adequately addressed.

WMEC’s Options Counselors’ goal is to empower you with knowledge and support, allowing you to make informed decisions about your future. We understand the importance of finding the right living arrangement and accessing the necessary services and supports, and we’re dedicated to helping you every step of the way. So, reach out to us today, and let’s start this journey together.
