CADI & Elderly Waivers
All of the accommodations at both of our Communities are eligible for Community Access for Disability Inclusion (CADI) waiver, Elderly Waiver (EW) and Brain Injury (BI) waiver, with no private pay eligibility period.
Our care team professionals will perform a complete assessment to determine the level of need and work directly with case managers on your behalf to ensure your paperwork gets processed appropriately and costs are finalized and approved.
We ensure that your loved ones needing extra levels of care will feel and welcome and secure in our community.
