It's Official: Choose Well is the County's Newest Program

Congratulations to all our Choose Well providers. On Tuesday 1 August, 2017, the County made it official:  Choose Well was officially launched.  And, if you missed the news reports about Choose Well, you can catch up here. As new stories are found, we will link to them here.  

On Tuesday 1 August, 2017, the County made it official:  Choose Well was officially launched.  The media launch, held at the County Administration Center, witnessed an impressive array of elected officials and public servants behind the microphone.  With Choose Well being the brainchild of Chairwoman Dianne Jacob and Greg Cox, they were the first two speakers - describing for the audience the purpose of the program, why the county thought funding this program was important, and the personal challenges they had individually experienced when trying to find appropriate assisted living placements for their own family members.  Nick Macchione Director of HHSA, discussed Choose Well as a valued component of the County's Live Well Initiative.  And the and the legendary Deputy District Attorney Paul Greenwood spoke about the program and its benefits to providers and consumers.  Also in attendance were AIS Interim Director Chuck Mathews, and Former AIS Interim Director Mark Sellers.  Speaking on behalf of Choose Well's providers, Tim Frazier Chief Administrative Officer of St. Paul's Senior Services (St. Paul's has three Choose Well facilities) spoke   about the logical development and construction of the Choose Well Scoring Device - a device based on sound methodology and objective information.

It's not too late to become a Choose Well volunteer provider.  You need only call us at the Choose Well Help Line at (858) 221-4862 and we'll tell you everything you need to know about the program. 

Kudos and Congratulations to each of our Choose Well Founding Members!  for being early adopters of this innovative program offering transparency and fact-based information about your care and services - directly to consumers looking for your services.  Your commitment to transparency is destined to make a difference in how families make their placement decisions, and in how assisted living services in San Diego County are perceived.
