NY Medicaid Waiver Services We Offer
Service Coordination services are essential for maintaining a participant's independence as they coordinate all the community services someone could need to support them to live as independently as possible. This can range from securing financial benefits such as social security, finding and securing a place they can afford to live, arranging medical services, vocational/educational services transportation, therapies and of course, services such as ours which are approved through the NYS Department of Health Medicaid Waiver program. The Service Coordinator then monitors the participant’s services and makes adjustments based on how well the participant is progressing.
Independent Living Skills Training (ILST)
A ILST works one on one with individuals in their home & community by developing goals they choose to become more independent in their daily activities. These goals may include: budgeting, maintaining & organizing their household, planning and coordinating medical appointments they may have, taking medications as prescribed. It may include re-learning how to plan for meals, grocery shopping and meal preparation. Many of our participants struggle with short-term memory and our staff work with them on learning strategies and techniques they can use to help compensate for their memory deficits such as implementing planning and organizational tools in their home.
Our Connections day program offers an opportunity to work on personal goals in a group setting. This program provides several opportunities for members to contribute to the community.
