Helping you stay in your home
We provide services to people who would typically require placement in a nursing home to maintain their health and safety. The Nursing Home Transition and Diversion (NHTD) Waiver allows individuals to receive oversight and supervision in their own home. Individuals wishing to leave a nursing home setting and return to their home or to prevent placement in a nursing home who meet eligibility requirements may participate in this program.
Eligibility: Individuals residing in Broome, Chemung, Schuyler, Steuben, Tioga, or Tompkins Counties who are age 65 years or older or between 18 and 64 years with a diagnosed disability (including but not limited to Alzheimerís, dementia, MS, spinal cord injury) may participate in the NHTD Waiver program. For more information, please contact our Intake Coordinator at (607) 937-3296.
Home and Community Support Services are provided through our Licensed Home Care Services (LHCSA). A Registered Nurse will provide oversight to all orders from the participantís medical practitioner recommending oversight, supervision, personal care services, mobility, meal preparation, and or light housekeeping tasks.
