Nursing Home Transition and Diversion Waiver

Nursing Home Transition and Diversion

The Nursing Home Transition and Diversion Waiver is a community based program regulated by the Department of Health which provides services to the aging population and allows people who are nursing home eligible to remain in their home with supports.
 
Individuals between the ages of 18-64, must have a physical disability to meet eligibility requirements; this requirement is waived for individuals 65 and older who are in jeopardy of nursing home placement or those who would like to transition from a nursing home into the community.
 
All participants must have Medicaid and community based long term care coverage. Heritage Christian provides NHTD services within four counties in the Rochester region (Monroe, Livingston, Ontario and Wayne) as well as within four counties in the Western New York region (Erie, Niagara, Orleans and Genesee). Heritage Christian is currently approved to provide Service Coordination and have applications in to provide several additional services.
