The Family Care Program is a pilot managed long term care program currently operating in five counties. It is based on the philosophy that service dollars should follow the client. People enrolled in Family Care who meet the nursing home level of care criteria have a choice of home care, Residential Care Apartment Complexes, Community Based Residential Facilities, Adult Family Homes, and nursing homes.
The Family Care program replaces/combines waiver programs and other sources of funding for long term care. It provides greater flexibility in the use of funds and improved access through shorter waiting periods.
