There are many state and federal programs and services for children and adults with developmental disabilities. The availability of programs will vary depending on age, disability, individual and family income and waiting lists for services. Medicaid also funds group homes, also know as supervised group living. Medicaid Waivers allow Medicaid to pay for services that support families in caring for a loved one at home, allow adults with disabilities to live in the community residential programs with up to 24 hour supports, and supports to help people move out of large congregate facilities, including nursing facilities.
Family income and resources are not counted when determining Medicaid eligibility for children receiving Medicaid Waiver services. Because there is a waiting list to get Medicaid Waiver services, it is important to apply and get on the waiting list, even if you do not need services at this time. Group homes, also know as supervised group living, funded by Medicaid, typically serve six to eight people. This includes a 30 bed facility in Marion and a 20 bed facility in Greencastle.
Placement is made through BDDS. There are also some specialized group homes for up to four people who have Extensive Support Needs ESN and specialized group homes for up to four people who have ificant medical needs. People with developmental disabilities need not live in nursing homes unless they have a serious medical condition.
If your loved one is currently living in a nursing home, they can move to a community-based residential program, funded through the Medicaid Waiver program, with 24 hour supports. If you are considering placing your loved one in a nursing home, or if someone is recommending a nursing home as an option, it is important to explore other residential options.
