Senior Options & Solutions (SOS)

The Senior Options and Solutions (SOS) Program is a free resource for seniors to get information or guidance when faced with health and care issues. 

Information & Education
To meet the needs of the residents of our community, Stony Brook Eastern Long Island Hospital offers the Senior Options and Solutions (SOS) program. This program provides assistance to older adults, families and caregivers who need help answering heath care questions, identifying their needs, and accessing necessary services.

Collaboration
Stony Brook Eastern Long Island Hospital is working closely with Southold Town Senior Services and other local programs that serve seniors; and is committed to strengthening our community by improving quality of life for older adults. 

Assessment
A care manager is available to assess each individual’s needs at a convenient location — in the home, at community centers or at the SOS office, located at 222 Manor Place across the street from Stony Brook Eastern Long Island Hospital in Greenport.

After a review of topics such as:

  • Medical Status
  • Mental Health Status
  • Housing and In-home Needs
  • Social Functioning

the care manager connects the individual with services to encourage independent living and optimize good health.

Referrals
It is very common for your loved one to be referred to alternate community services that specialize in particular needs. Our care manager’s expertise and knowledge of available options benefits seniors through professional referrals and direction.

Some of these services are:

  • Social Interaction/Programming
  • Cognitive Programming
  • Nutrition
  • Benefits Assistance
  • Home Services
  • Housing/Placement

Stony Brook Eastern Long Island Hospital remains committed to attentively, expertly and compassionately guiding older area residents in their pursuit of health and wellness. Cooperative efforts of multiple local agencies make these services possible.
