What is Living Choices?

Living Choices is an assisted living program that enables you to live on your own in an assisted living facility, to do the things you enjoy, and to be healthy. Because of that, it’s a wonderful alternative to living in an institution.

For example, if you need help bathing, toileting, eating, and drinking, a trained person at the assisted living residence is there to help you do all those things. Plus, there are social activities to brighten your day, help with your medications, and many more services designed with one goal in mind – to keep you in the community.

How do I apply?

Call your local DHS county office or the Choices in Living Resource Center to explore your choices. 1-866-801-3435.

What is assisted living?

If living on your own isn’t an option anymore, our assisted living program may be the solution for you.
