“A Life Lived Fully Every Day”

Elder Options supports older adults, the disabled and their families by creating care services that enable your loved one to experience a life lived fully every day.

We work with you to uniquely personalize the support you require now as health and situations change. Whether at home or in a care community, our care management, home care, respite and assisted living services are designed to insure a safe, happy and fulfilling “every day.”

Our 30-year elder care heritage in the greater Sacramento area demonstrates a reputation without peer. Carol Heape, our Founder and CEO, pioneered the development of care services in the region and continues that work today in recognition of the changing values of older adults and the disabled. Our legacy and leadership has empowered Elder Options to craft long-lasting relationships with critical elder health care programs in the area and attract a talented, credentialed team.  This enables us to select the best resources for your loved one now and over their entire life.

Elder Options understands our real business is people. Our clients’ experiences have blessed us with the recognition that we are invested in the dignity of every person we serve, to do our part in enabling a life lived fully every day.

Working with clients/families to honor wishes and provide a safe living environment with a cost-effective, professional approach

It’s a fact. Older adults and people with disabilities want to remain at home and age in place. It may be the family home where they’ve lived for 60 years, the ranch or wine property that has been in the family since the Gold Rush, a retirement home or an assisted living community where they’ve relocated to be closer to family. The locations vary depending on the wishes and needs of the client/family. For now however, it is home and it’s where they want to stay. Established in 1988, Elder Options understands that. Our goal when we meet with client/families is to understand

  • what the wishes are.
  • what needs are emerging.
  • what the expectations are.

Beginning to develop the relationship with the client/family helps our credentialed Aging Life Care Managers, experts in the field find solutions that meet what the client and their family are searching for.

Credentialed Care Managers work to:

  • Understand the clients and their expectations.
  • Evaluate the client from a health, emotional, memory, and physical perspective.
  • Identify client needs and develop a plan of care.
  • Assure resources sought are appropriate and cost effective.
  • Continue to be a resource to client/family with regular communication and access.
