Georgia Medicaid Activities “Waivers”


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)
