Options for Long Term Care (OLTC)

Options for Long Term Care provides access to publicly funded programs that provide support to people with disabling functional conditions and limited finances. These programs are designed to help people continue to live in their own homes or in other community settings, as alternatives to nursing home care.

OLTC provides assessment and on-going case management to older and disabled low-income individuals who are in need of long-term care services in their own homes or alternative care facilities, and provides assessment for people in need of placement in a skilled facility. OLTC currently provides ongoing services to approximately 1300 Larimer County residents outside of nursing facilities, with the goal of providing long-term care in the settings requested by clients and their families and utilizing Medicaid in the most cost-effective manner.
