Aged and Disabled Waiver Program (ADW) is a long-term care alternative that provides services that enable an individual to remain at or return home rather than receiving nursing home care.
The care may be directed by a case management agency or the individual himself. The individual must meet certain medical criteria, as well as the financial requirements listed below. Some assets of a couple are protected for the spouse who does not need nursing home or home and community-based care and these assets are not counted to determine eligibility for the individual who needs care in the home.
The goals and objectives of this program are focused on providing services that are person-centered, promote choice, independence, participant-direction, respect, and dignity and community integration.
