    Programs that offer an interactive decision support process that helps individuals in need of long term care and their families understand their strengths, needs, preferences and unique circumstances and weigh the pros and cons of available alternatives. The consultation includes a discussion of the factors to consider when making long term care decisions, information about the range of long term care support options available in their community (such as personal care, transportation and medication management) and resources that can help them pay for services. The program also provides decision support to help identify next steps in the process and help in connecting with services, if needed. The service is generally available to older adults and adults of any age who have a disability; can be of benefit to people using their own resources to pay for services; and may be provided over the telephone or in person (at home, at an agency, in a hospital, at a rehabilitation or nursing facility or in another setting of the person's choosing). The objective of the program is to allow people to live as independently as possible in the setting of their choice.

When given choice, an overwhelming number of people say they want to age in place in their homes rather than in institutions. The NHT program provides the opportunity for participants and their families or caregivers to be fully informed of all long-term services and supports options, including the full range of available home and community-based services (HCBS). Through the NHT program, participants can receive the guidance and support they need to make informed choices about their long-term services and supports. The program assists participants in moving out of institutions and eliminates barriers in service systems, as well as physical barriers by providing home modifications so that participants receive services and supports in settings of their choice.AlleghenyArea Agency on AgingAllegheny County Department of Human Services
