This program is designed to provide services to individuals with disabilities or long term illnesses, who live in a nursing facility but want to transition home or to a community setting. Services are based on individual needs. The individual must have been in a nursing facility for at least 90 days to be eligible. Financial and medical guidelines apply.
Personal Choices is an option for self-directed home and community-based services. The program allows people who are receiving services through Medicaid Waivers to self-direct, offering more choices, flexibility, and control in managing their daily lives. The program offers seniors and people with disabilities more choice and flexibility in the type of care they receive and the provider of that care. Participants, with the help of a counselor, manage their resources.
