 Naturally, most seniors would like to continue living at home, if at all possible. One must consider, however, if these services will provide all the necessary care that is required to insure the safety and well-being of an individual. If a signif- icant amount of care is required, this choice could become cost prohibitive and perhaps unsafe. Another consider- ation is the lack of social interaction that the home service provides. Even with a daily visitor from Meals on Wheels a se- nior can soon feel isolated. Isolation may lead to depression and this can greatly affect ones health.
The listing on page 17 is a place to start to ask more questions.
MI Choice Waiver programs – Nurs- ing homes or skilled nursing facilities used to be the only choice for older or disabled persons who needed help caring for themselves. Today the MI Choice Waiver Program, or simply, “the waiver,” can help. Through this program, eligible adults who meet income and asset criteria can receive Medicaid-covered services like
those provided by nursing homes, but can stay in their own home or another residential setting.
Nurse and social worker teams work with participants to develop a per- son-centered, individualized plan that includes a mix of services appropriate
to their needs and preferences. Each participant can receive the basic services Michigan Medicaid covers, and one or more of the following services unique to the waiver:
Community living supports, preven- tative nursing services, respite services, adult day health, environmental modifica- tions, non-medical transportation, chore services, personal emergency response systems, private duty nursing, counseling, home delivered meals, training in a variety of independent living skills, supports co- ordination, fiscal intermediary, goods and services, and more.
To find a MI Choice Waiver Program in your area reach out to your Area Agency on Aging to get started. Turn to page 38 for an Area Agency near you.
Services In & Out
of Your Home
Adult Day Care Services – This program is for individuals who need daytime supervision and social activities. Adult day care can provide respite care outside your home. It is helpful to family caregivers who work or who simply need a break from caregiving. Costs may be met through agencies in your community if you qualify, or services will be provided through private-pay.
Programs of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) – PACE is a Medi- care and Medicaid program offered in many states that allows people who oth- erwise need a nursing home-level of care to remain in the community. Part of their time may be spent in the day facility and then the balance of their day at home.
PACE programs offer adult day services as part of the enrollment in their program. CONTINUED...
