At Dellwood Gardens, we strive to provide our residents and their families with peace of mind by providing affordable housing and services while alleviating the financial burden associated with moving to an assisted living community. Our mission is to make high-quality assisted living accessible to people of every cultural and economic background, and we proudly accept Medicaid Elderly Waiver (EW), CADI Waiver, and Group Residential Housing assistance to help do so.
If you’re on or qualify for Medicaid, Elderly Waiver (EW) could cover the cost of your care. EW programs help to fund home and community-based services for individuals requiring a higher level of care.
This is known as the Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) waiver because it allows states to treat certain Medicaid populations in-home or in other community-based settings. Medicaid waivers support the independence of older adults and adults who experience physical disabilities by providing services such as:
- Home delivered meals
- Personal home care
- Adult daycare
- Assistive devices
Depending on the state you live in, Medicaid resources for the Elderly Waiver can vary by state, so it’s vital to find the waiver that specifically pertains to where you reside. With the Elderly Waiver, seniors can access the care they require while remaining in community with others.
At Dellwood Gardens, we’re one of the few assisted senior living communities to accept residents covered by the Community Access for Disability Inclusion (CADI) Waiver. This program helps individuals with disabilities who require nursing-level care to maintain a level of independence by providing financial assistance for home and community-based services such as:
- Care management
- Adult day care
- In-home care
- Supplemental services
This is a statewide program that enables an individual to continue living in an assisted living facility with the benefits of personal assistance, respite care, and home modifications. This program is intended for people under the age of 65 at enrollment, but they may continue after the age of 65 or enroll in the Elderly Waiver.
We are passionate about this program because it provides an alternative to institutionalization for seniors and those with disabilities. These services allow an individual to remain as independent as possible in community settings while encouraging health, safety, and meaningful community involvement.
Group Residential Housing (GRH) Assistance
The Group Residential Housing (GRH) plan is a state-funded income supplement program that pays for the housing costs for low-income adults who’ve moved to a licensed or registered community. This program requires the county’s human service agency to negotiate and settle a monthly rate. Benefits administered through the Group Residential Housing (GRH) program are accepted at Dellwood Gardens.
