Georgia Medicaid Activities “Waivers”

Georgia

Waiver programs help people who are elderly or have disabilities and need help to live in their home or community instead of an institution such as a nursing home or ICF-MR. Each program offers several "core" services: -service coordination (help with managing care needs and services) -personal support (assistance with daily living activities, i.e. bathing, dressing, meals and housekeeping) -home health services (nursing, home health aide, and occupational, physical and speech therapy) -emergency response systems -respite care (caregiver relief)
