General Information
Description of ProgramThe Open Door Program assists people living in nursing homes and intermediate care facilities receive individualized home and community based services.

The Transition Center helps people living in these facilities receive home and community based services. This includes information about the services and supports available in their local community. There are transition specialists at Independent Living Centers in counties all over New York State.

Transition specialists will meet with you and/or your family members to identify what services you will need and help you in getting those services.

Peers visit nursing homes and developmental centers to share their experiences with residents and support people who want to move to the community.
