This waiver provides an alternative to nursing facilities for aging and/or disabled adults. They are designed to provide services that supplement informal provisions for people who would require care in a nursing facility if the waiver or other support systems were not available.
The services we provide at HopeLink under the Aging and Disabled Waiver are:
Attendant care services primarily involve hands-on assistance for aging adults and persons with disabilities. These services are provided to allow aging adults or persons with disabilities to remain in their own homes and to carry out functions of daily living, self-care, and mobility.
Homemaker services offer direct and practical assistance consisting of household tasks and related activities. Homemaker services assist the individual to remain in a clean, safe, and healthy home environment. Homemaker services are provided when the individual is unable to meet these needs or when an informal caregiver is unable to meet these needs for the individual.
