Home and Community Based Waiver Services
Home and Community Based Waiver Services (HCBS) provide support and guidance to individuals with developmental disabilities to assist with independent living at home and in their community. This program enables individuals who have developmental disabilities or TBI (Traumatic Brain Injuries) and are eligible for Medicaid to receive Medicaid services in their community rather than in nursing homes or institutions.
This service can provide staff support to work with individuals on specific independent living skills goals that are chosen by the individual and caregivers.
Community goals may include
- community integration,
- money management,
- volunteering, or
- attending appointments.
Skills are taught in the home to promote independent living within the community include:
- How to do laundry;
- How to cook;
- How to maintain a home;
- How to schedule and keep appointments;
- How to develop a household budget;
- How to choose and attend activities and events.
