HCBS Caregiver/Family Supports and Training

HCBS Caregiver/Family Supports and Training

    Description:

    The HCBS Waiver, authorized in 1915(c) of the Social Security Act, is to maintain individuals under the age of 21 with SED in their homes/communities who would otherwise be in hospital levels of care by reimbursing for non-traditional services. This service enhances the individual's ability to function as part of a caregiver/family unit and enhances that units ability to care for the individual in the home and/or community. Services include: interact/engage to offer educational,advocacy, and support resources to develop family's ability to independently access community services and activities; encourage self-sufficiency in caring for the individual in the home and community, educate/train the caregiver unit on resource availability so they can support/advocate for the needs of the child and appropriately access needed services. This service is not the CFTSS Family Peer Support Service which is required to be delivered by a certified/credentialed Family Peer with lived experience.
