Default oil usage

Hello, my 2008 prius with 260,000 miles goes through about one quart of oil about every 1000 miles, the dealer said that when i get to about 800 miles per quart i should think about having something done, if the motor needs to be rebuilt it will cost more (6-7 thousand $) it would cost more than my car is worth, my car seems to be running well, it doesn't smoke or anything, they say that the oil is building up in the motor, they also said that I could just keep driving it and keep adding oil when needed, not sure what to do.
