We are here to help you live a stress-free life
Medicaid waivers were created to provide the option of staying in the home or community instead of an institution or facility such as a nursing home. Choosing to stay in the home or community is not only more comfortable but has economic benefits as well. In Georgia, there are several Medicaid Waiver Programs for which our clients may be eligible. The largest programs are SOURCE and CCSP, both of which are provided by Joynus Care.
At Joynus Care, we strive to provide our community with the proper resources and tools available to help them get the assistance they need at home. Whether its getting their home care services started to help our clients renew their Medicaid. Joynus Care has several resources available for our senior clients. It may not be an easy task but we are here to guide you and your family. Below are some of the options and programs we provide. We will always find the right option for you. Please feel free to contact our office for further questions.
SOURCE (Service Options Using Resources in Community Environment) is a statewide Primary Care Enhanced Case Management Service under the Elderly and Disabled Waiver that links primary medical care with many long term health services in a person's home or community setting to prevent unnecessary emergency room visits and hospital stays and avoid institutionalization.
Community Care Services Program (CCSP) helps Medicaid-eligible people who are elderly and/ or functionally impaired to continue living in their homes and communities. CCSP offers community-based care as an alternative to nursing home placement. The division of Aging and Services, a division of the Department of Human Resources, administers, CCSP.
The Independent Care Waiver Program (ICWP) offers services that help a limited number of adult Medicaid members with physical disabilities live in their own homes or in the community instead of a hospital or nursing home. ICWP services are also available for persons with traumatic brain injuries (TBI). The program operates through the Georgia Department of Community Health (DCH) under a Home- and Community-Based Waiver (1915c) granted by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).
The Structured Family Caregiving Program ( SFC) with Joynus Care offers financial support and guidance to families that provide at-home care to a senior or disabled person. You may be eligible if you meet the following SFC requirements:
Family members providing the care must be willing and able to provide care at home
Family members will not have an outside job or run any other business from home
Family members will receive a weekly stipend
The client must be enrolled in one of the two Elderly Disabled Waiver Programs, CCSP or SOURCE to be eligible for the SFC Program
The phrase "long-term care" refers to the help that people with chronic illnesses, disabilities or other conditions need on a daily basis over an extended period of time. The type of help needed can range from assistance with simple activities (such as bathing, dressing, and eating) to skilled care that's provided by nurses, therapists or other professionals. Buying a long-term care insurance policy can be expensive, but there are steps you can take to make it more affordable and flexible.
When all options are exhausted, you may look into the option of paying privately. Call us for a brief consultation to see if Joynus is the right fit for you and your family.
