Professional Partnerships

With over 25 years in the community, developing professional partnerships is a valued resource for Elder Options. Unique within the profession, Elder Options continues to join with other long-term care professionals in looking for solutions for the client/families it serves.

Elder Options is able to serve client/families through partnerships with:

State of California (DHCS) – Assisted Living Waiver Program (ALWP).  Elder Options has been part of this Medi-Cal waiver program since its inception with RNs conducting initial assessments, reassessments and RNs/Social Workers making monthly monitoring visits for all clients moving into an approved Assisted Living and the ALWP in Sacramento County.

Alta California Regional Center – Respite Care.  Elder Options serves eligible consumers and their families with respite care throughout El Dorado County, South Lake Tahoe and portions of Sacramento County. Our Care Managers make initial home visits and develop a care plan for respite care based on the needs of the consumer and the expectations of the family.

Multiple Sclerosis Society (MS) – Through a contract with the Multiple Sclerosis Society–San Francisco, Elder Options receives referrals for Care Management to assist clients diagnosed with MS with education, support, and hands-on assistance while living independently at home.

El Dorado County – Family Caregiver Support Program/Multipurpose Senior Services Program A contract to provide limited care in the home is available through a contract with El Dorado County and Elder Options. When a referral is received from FCSP or MSSP, home care hours are set up with times and tasks coordinated with client/family. There is no charge to the client/family.

Long-Term Care Insurance Companies – Elder Options’ credentialed Care Managers take the lead once a client/family begins services with us and client(s) have long-term care insurance coverage. The Care Manager reviews coverage and assists clients with the submission of a claim to start services. Monthly case notes are completed and billing can be done directly by Elder Options’ billing department.

VA Grant – Many veterans throughout the county access their health benefits through the Veterans Administration (VA). However, there is no VA health facility within the county limits. A veteran may have difficulty getting to a VA health facility due to disability, age, lack of family/friend support or health issues making it impossible for them to drive themselves. The Veterans Transportation grant awarded by the County of El Dorado Veterans’ Affairs Commission will assist with veterans’ out of county transportation needs. The mini-grant is matched by funds from the Elders Community fund, a committee governed fund with the El Dorado Community Foundation.

Additional Referrals come from:

  • Barton Hospital, Marshall Hospital, Mercy Hospital–Folsom, U.C. Davis Hospital, Kaiser Hospital System
  • Marshall Home Health, Sutter Home Health, Mercy Home Health, Barton Home Health, and Kaiser Home Health
  • Snowline Hospice, Kaiser Hospice, Mercy Hospice, Barton Hospice, and other hospice organizations
  • Physician’s offices, community clinics
  • County agencies throughout the Sacramento region
