Long-Term Care Services Offer Options for Those Who Can't Care for Themselves
Nursing Home & Institutional Care
The best solution for someone with severe disability or fragile medical state may be a nursing facility. They provide care for individuals who cannot care for themselves at home, and nursing homes also can assist with activities of daily living.
For faster processing of a nursing home application in Montgomery County, please submit your application through the nursing home.
Home & Community-Based Waiver Services
Home and community-based waivers are programs of in-home and community care that help Ohio Medicaid consumers remain at home instead of being in a nursing home, hospital or facility for people with developmental disabilities.
States must apply for "waivers" from the federal government in order for Medicaid to provide home and community-based services. Waivers allow qualifying individuals to have more control of their lives and remain active in their community.
