Adult In-Home Care
Our Kids Grow, So Do We. We Serve Adults Too!
ACP entered adult care when our pediatric patients starting to age out of the GAPP Program. Every family that transitions from caring for a “child” to caring for an “adult” understands how challenging this time can be. As a matter of fact, as our medically fragile children age and require more specialized care, our ‘healthcare system’ does not follow the same path of progression. At 21 years of age, many Medicaid programs become unavailable to our “grown up kids” even though their needs have not changed.
We understand the importance of continuity of care in this critical time. We are committed to offer you the resources you need for your loved one’s smooth transition to adulthood. You can count on us!
ACP specializes in high acuity care to medically fragile patients in need of long term care.
ACP serves Medicaid patients enrolled into the COMP/NOW Waiver, and Private Insurance or Private Pay.
What is the COMP/NOW Waiver
Understanding Your Medicaid Option
The New Options Waiver (NOW) and the Comprehensive Supports Waiver Program (COMP) offer home- and community-based services for people with a developmental or intellectual disability.
Purpose of the NOW/COMP Waiver Programs:
The NOW waiver program enables individuals with less intense and urgent needs than out-of-home residential treatment or extensive waiver services to live independently in the community. ACP offers personal care support (CNAs) to individuals on the NOW waiver.
The COMP waiver program is for individuals who need comprehensive and intensive services to live in the community. Individuals eligible for the COMP waiver program need out-of-home residential support and supervision or intensive in-home services to remain in the community. ACP offers nursing services (LPNs) and personal care support (CNAs) to individuals on the COMP waiver.
ACP guides you through the initial insurance application or with the the transition process from the GAPP program to the COMP/NOW waiver. Call us for help!
