Choices Elder Support, LLC is owned and operated by Sharon Connor, a social worker with over 20 years experience working with older adults.  As the clients require, Sharon collaborates with colleagues who are experienced nurses and social workers.  Our goal is to problem solve with our clients and their families to support and honor their choices.

Care Management: Offers ongoing care to those elders who require support to live in the least restrictive manner that they can.  A comprehensive assessment  is completed, which has recommendations for services and resources to best assist them.  We then arrange for,  monitor and  modify the services as needed.  We are available to assist in an emergency.  We partner with family and caregivers to meet the needs of the client on an ongoing basis.

Consultation is for those older adults who are thinking about future changes, and would like to know more about their options.  We complete a comprehensive assessment based on their finances,  lifestyle and health, and  provide a recommended plan that takes into consideration the myriad of services available.   This is a short term service usually involving 2-4 visits to complete.
