Nursing Home Transition and Diversion

The purpose of this program is to assure health and safety. It also allows you to receive support and services in your own home and the community instead of a nursing home.

The Service Coordinator’s primary role is to assist you in exploring and securing supports and services that best meet your needs and desires while allowing you to live as independently and productively as possible. The Service Coordinator works in partnership with you and acts as an “advocate”. This may include helping you find an accessible place to live, linkage to a variety of supports, adult day programs, counseling, nutritional and educational services, respite, or home delivered meals.

Additionally, Service Coordinators coordinate assessments, make referrals, provide information regarding benefits and entitlements, monitor, and maintain most services/supports as they apply to you.
