How Do Waiver Services Help Your Care?

how-do-waiver-services-help-your-care

Waivers are designed to provide ongoing assistance to those requiring it for the foreseeable future, such as those with severe health conditions or developmental handicaps.

Many states have established waiver services to prevent people from moving into nursing homes. While most services are geared at people with the nursing home level of need, some may be available to those with less severe conditions but are nevertheless at risk for a nursing facility.

Depending on where you live, these services may be referred to as long-term care, Medicaid waivers, or home and community-based care.

If you are eligible for a waiver, you will eventually get the help you need, even if there is a waitlist. The number of waiver services you use can increase or decrease as your circumstances change.

Two primary options are available through waiver programs: self-directed and agency. It’s possible, for instance, to hire a caregiver from a home care agency or to find and employ an aide independently.

Finding the right home care program in your state can take some time because there are several options, including personal care, companionship, and others.
