2 "For too long, too many Americans have faced the impossible choice between moving to an institution or living at home without the long-term services and supports they need. The goal of the new Administration for Community Living will be to help people with disabilities and older Americans live productive, satisfying lives." - Secretary Kathleen Sebelius

5 Options Counseling Trainee Responses Tell us why you think this change in the way we provide information around LTSS is necessary? Because there are fewer resources and more individuals in need of support, there needed to be a new way of "doing business" in order for people to obtain assistance and make informed choices. The change was needed to avoid agency 'silos' whereas agencies become isolated entities. Collaboration is key to the new model of LTSS. Life stages are multi-dimensional, often times requiring vital decisions that impact daily living. Information and guided support can be key elements in making the best decisions to meet an individuals needs, goals and values. 5
