OPTIONS COUNSELING - FREED

FREED CENTER FOR INDEPENDENT LIVING #74648790


location_on B
  • 435 Sutton Way
    Grass Valley, Nevada

As a member of the Nevada County Aging and Disability Resource Connection (ADRC), FREED assists people in making informed decisions about their short- or long–term care needs, and helps them make a plan to be able to live as they want in the community.

The ADRC helps individuals form a realistic view of what the community options in Nevada County really are. The consumer is encouraged to sit down with the ADRC Navigator to make an action plan and then become responsible for carrying out the steps of the plan. A sample plan might include contacting family members for their input, contacting a financial advisor or planner to help with the money issues, or gathering information from local agencies on energy assistance or low cost telephone programs. It is up to the person to follow through on the plan but assistance from the ADRC Navigator is readily available if needed. A follow-up call will be made to see if the plan has been successful or if an amended plan is needed.

location_on C
  • 435 Sutton Way
    Grass Valley, Nevada

The FREED Telephone Reassurance program is for anyone feeling lonely or isolated in Nevada County. A phone bank of volunteers makes phone calls Monday - Friday to check-in, chat, and socialize. Individuals who would like to receive telephone calls can choose to receive calls from one day a week up to 5 days a week. 
 
The FREED Friendly Visitor program matches Friendly Visitor participants to volunteers—who then get together to see movies, hang out, have conversations, play cards, go for a walk, or just talk. Volunteers can also meet by phone. 
 
Due to factors such as a lack of transportation or community inaccessibility, many seniors and people with disabilities go through prolonged periods of social isolation and loneliness. People who have disabilities identify numerous obstacles to community inclusion. In rural areas, especially, people are at risk for experiencing isolation which is a risk factor leading to many poor health outcomes.
