Waiver programs, also known as waiver funded services, are programs for individuals that require long-term care but wish to remain in the comfort of their own home. The quality of care received through a waiver program is the same level as one would receive in a hospital or nursing home setting, but allows patients to live as independently as possible and delay or even prevent admission to a medical center.
Education regarding waiver programs is, unfortunately, lacking. Many people that are eligible for these options are unaware that they exist, and the result can be an emotional and financial strain on patients and their families.
Waiver services are aptly named because the government “waives” the typical regulations associated with using medical assistance and Medicaid; rather than requiring that funds be used for institutional care, certain individuals are able to use waiver programs to allocate funds to home health care services.
All American Home Care & Hospice offers services and support via waiver programs so that patients can receive more than just the care they need, but the care they deserve. It is important to note that not all home care agencies offer support through waiver programs. We are able to do so by being recognized by the state of Pennsylvania as a qualified provider.

Home care for your loved ones is available around the clock, even nights and weekends.
