  • Our Family Care Fact Sheet provides an overview of additional residential options and is a great tool for thinking about different options when more help is needed or living at home may no longer be an option.
  • Advanced Directives record a person’s goals for what level of care they want provided if something should happen to them. We encourage members to think about setting their goals early and having discussions with family about them. While these forms can always be changed, it’s a serious and important conversation to start having. Click here for more information.
