Providing Care & Support
to People With Disabilities
Developing New, Exciting and Innovative
Supports for Individuals Since 1986
OPTIONS is a private company incorporated on August 7th, 1986. Elaine Yost is the President & Director of the company and as such has ultimate control and responsibility for the company in its operations. An advisory committee comprised of parents, consumers, professionals and lay people assists in the development of policies and procedures that affect the company in its work.
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.
It is our belief that those individuals who know the person best should have access and input to all decisions made about and with the individual. It is our hope that the relationship between parents/guardians, consumers and OPTIONS can be built on a joint commitment to supporting the individual in the most positive way possible; to openness in communication; to constructiveness and creativity in problem solving; and to a shared responsibility.
