Options Counseling

Pre-admission counseling and options counseling are conversations that can help a person with a developmental disability get the information they need to make choices about living on their own, with other people in their community, or in an intermediate care facility. The final decision about where to live is up to the person accessing services.

Options counseling focuses on people who live in an intermediate care facility where nine or more people can live. Everyone who lives in the facility can choose to take part and hear about some options that may be available to support them if they want to move out of the facility.
