|Options for Independent
was founded in 1998 by a group of health care professionals who saw a
need in the Central New York community for better in-home elder-care
services. Our combined experiences, ranging from nursing to health
care administration and medical practice management, bring a wealth of
health care knowledge and expertise to the organization.
Options for Independent Living is
managed by a team of professional nurses committed to provide the
highest quality elder care and to eliminating the loneliness and fear
often associated with old age. This team manages the care of each
clients, assessing their needs, finding just the right caregivers, and
following up to make certain the care provided is exactly the care
that's needed. Our philosophy is simple: "We care for each client as
if they were our own loved one." Isn't that what you would want?
Options supports independence and
dignity in the aging process by providing companion care and live-in
services, allowing elders to remain in their own homes and maintain a
higher quality of life and as much autonomy as possible.
Options provides care for clients who
need supervision, maintenance care, or companionship, but who are
medically stable. We provide access to short-term recuperative,
rehabilitative and preventive services, and work with health-related
services, when needed.
Options brings relief and peace of
mind to families who may care deeply for their elders, but find the
realities of that care overwhelming, or who may be simply too far away
to provide it themselves.
According to numerous
studies, and older person's health and well-being
decline dramatically when placed in an institutional setting earlier
than is medically necessary. Although nursing homes are the only
solution for some, and will be an eventual reality for many more, they
aren't the only alternative. The solution is reliable, quality home
