13 Executive Office of Elder Affairs 13 COMMENTS  After meeting with my counselor I became aware of the services available that offer me a better quality of life. I am so pleased that getting older doesn't need to be so fearful. There are people who care. Thank you.  The services provided were limited. I had to call twice to get information. I am disappointed that there was no "follow up" to those who do not qualify for services.  The Options Counselor needed to work with the reluctant caregiver more. Caregivers who are not invested in helping their family member, and are willing to let them go to a shelter, shouldn’t be relied on to do the work needed to find them housing, or get them benefits.  The counselor informed me of a once a week program that I was seeking and not the everyday or several time a week services that other agencies did not know about or did not inform me about. I am very grateful to her.
