“You are a dynamic and giving couple. So grateful for your service.” − Diana B. (Picture Rocks, Pennsylvania)
Words like those from Diana are so meaningful to us and much appreciated. We are dedicated to helping families communicate about their health, personal care, and aging issues. Our mission is to prepare individuals for changing roles and responsibilities in caring for the impairments and debilities of loved ones as they age, as chronic diseases progress, or as terminal diagnoses are received. You can talk about this … and we can help.

Caring Choices is located in Central Pennsylvania where both Cindy and Jim were raised. We have progressive ideas about meaningful conversations related to aging, healthcare choices, and dying/death planning. While we acknowledge the value of technology, we wholeheartedly believe that these very personal conversations are better in person and in comfortable surroundings. We are, however, open to online consultations should people desire that. Contact us for consultation options.
