About CHOICE Advisory

Since 1993, we’ve been helping older adults and their families get to know the senior housing & care options available in our community.

Our services to seniors and their families are free. We are financially supported by the senior housing & care industry.

Select an Advisor to help you

It’s time to call a CHOICE Advisor:

  • When home is no longer practical or safe
  • When health suffers from poor nutrition or missed medications
  • When social isolation leads to boredom and depression
  • When family and friends are voicing concerns


  • Adult children helping their elderly or frail parent move into a care situation
  • Spouses who can no longer meet the high demands of caregiving at home
  • Powers of attorney working on behalf of an elderly family member or friend
  • Seniors living alone and in need of companionship and care

Housing and/or care services must be paid through private funds or long-term care insurance benefits


CHOICE exists because the options available to seniors in our community are vast and ever changing. By working with an advisor, you will receive a tailored list of options that matches your needs, interests and situation as closely and appropriately as possible.


Step 1: We receive your request for help.

Step 2: One of our advisors will follow up with your request, either by phone or by arranging an in-person meeting.

Step 3: We’ll define the options you’ll want to consider. We can provide you with a written list of options that you can visit on your own, or we can contact the senior living communities on your behalf.

Step 4: We’ll accompany you on your visits or we can coordinate your tour of the senior living communities.

Step 5: We are available by phone or in person to answer your questions and to follow up with you after your selection is made to ensure that you are satisfied with your selection.


1st CHOICE To The Rescue!

“When I finally made the decision to no longer live alone, I had no idea what to do next. 1st CHOICE came to my rescue! I was not only given several excellent options, but I was also given the information I needed to make a wise decision for myself. I am thankful that you let me make the choice on my own, but I’m equally grateful that you were there to listen to me.”  – Betty

Doctor Recommended

“I tried making calls on my own, but the more information I gathered, the more confused I got about the entire process. I happened to be with my mother, visiting her doctor and I found a 1st CHOICE Guide in the waiting room. When I asked my doctor if he knew about your agency, he told me about the good experiences he’s had in recommending people to 1st CHOICE. When he told us about 1st CHOICE, I thought, “It’s too good to be true!” Your services are invaluable.”  – Renee

Comfort In A Difficult Time

“The idea of moving from our home of forty years was daunting until I talked to 1st CHOICE. I may not have moved quickly, but I moved in a way that was comfortable for me, and I knew I was supported through this difficult and very big move. Without my husband here to help me make decisions, it gave me peace of mind to know someone was looking after my best interests. Thank you.” – Char
