Freedom to Choose
Are you, or a loved one, residing in a long-term care facility such as a nursing home or intermediate care facility (ICF/MR)?
- Have you considered returning to your family home, an apartment, or a community-based small group home?
- Would you prefer more independence and the freedom to make meaningful choices about your healthcare needs and daily activities?
Thousands of individuals across the country, through the efforts of Money Follows the Person and other programs, have successfully transitioned from an institutional setting to the community.
Depending upon your specific needs – whether you are aged, have a physical or developmental disability, or a traumatic brain injury – supportive services such as the following help people live successfully in community-based settings:
- Home Care/Chore Services
- Home-Delivered Meals
- Adult Day Health Care
- Nutrition Services Independence Skills Building
- Personal Emergency Response System
- Transportation (Non-medical and medical)
- Assistive Technology and Home Modification
- Home Again
- Home Health
- Habilitation Services
- Team Behavioral Consultation
- Child Day Services
Nebraska’s Money Follows the Person project can provide you with information about these supportive services and direct you to the appropriate waiver agency which will help you determine your level of needs and the services you may require. Certain eligibility requirements do apply, but the program provides outreach, education, and referral information to all those who are interested in community-based services.
If you, a loved one, or a friend prefer a community-based setting as an alternative to a facility-based setting, call Nebraska’s Money Follows the Person.
