HOME Choice

Helping Ohioans Move, Expanding Choice


HOME Choice Transition Coordination Services

Ombudsmen act as Transition Coordinators to assist people of any age with disabilities who wish to move from nursing homes back to their own home or other community setting. Participants achieve greater choice and control of the services they receive in their preferred setting.

Transition Coordinators provide direct assistance with helping participants locate appropriate housing, setting up their household, and accessing the services and goods necessary to live in the community.
