Current Office Operations
Although we are trying to resume in-person meetings with clients, we still encourage clients to consider meeting with us remotely, particularly if they have health concerns. Our office staff has been vaccinated, and we practice social distancing, but remote meeting through the use of technology like Zoom is safe and convenient, so we continue to encourage its use.

The most common type of Medicaid waiver expands Medicaid to cover home care to individuals who need a high level of care, but who would like to remain at home rather than enter a nursing home. Care that may be provided by a waiver includes personal attendants, home health aides, medical supplies and equipment, respite care, counseling services, transportation, homemaking services, hot meal delivery, and more.
