Colorado Choice Transitions

Colorado Choice Transitions (CCT) is a program delivered through the Aging and Disability Resources for Colorado (ADRC) that supports the transition of nursing home residents who wish to return and live in their community.  ADRC Options Counselors go to the nursing home to explain eligibility, the choices and options for residents, and make referrals to agencies who work with the resident to create a transition plan.

What services are available through Colorado Choice Transitions? Some services that may be available to help you transition to and live in the community include:

  •  Services to help you set up your home, such as moving expenses, security and utility deposits, and household furnishings.
  •  Services to help you develop and maintain your independence, such as financial management and organizing your home.
  •  Devices or equipment used to increase or maintain your ability to function independently in the community, such as wheelchair ramps, bed lifts, and shower bars.
  •  Home-delivered meals and meal preparation.
  •  Assistance with eating, bathing, dressing and housekeeping.
