CHOICES refers to Connecticut's program for health insurance assistance, outreach, information and referral, counseling and eligibility screening. This program offers Connecticut seniors a one-stop resource that provides information and referral services on a wide variety of aging-related matters, including assistance on health insurance concerns. It also helps older seniors to understand and exercise their rights, to receive benefits to which they are entitled, and to make informed choices about life concerns.

Penny Whitaker, our Volunteer CHOICES counselor, is available by appointment at the Senior Center. Please call 860-742-3525 to make your appointment or for more information.
