Providing Care & Support
to People With Disabilities

Developing New, Exciting and Innovative
Supports for Individuals Since 1986


Optional Rehabilitation Services (OPTIONS) Inc., a private company incorporated August 7, 1986, was born from the desire to develop new, exciting and innovative routes for providing care and support to people with disabilities.

OPTIONS was formed for the purpose of creating a new service choice for people who wish to initiate innovative routes for the provision of services to people with complex service needs.

It is OPTIONS’ belief that people who are disabled have the right to be treated with dignity; have the right to make choices; have the right to dignity of risk and have the right to live in the community.
