What is the Adult Services Program?
Our Adult Program provides services to people with disabilities so they can remain as independent as possible. The agency serves as a service coordination provider for the Pennsylvania’s Waiver programs under the Office of Long Term Living. Persons with disabilities who do not qualify for the waiver program but are in need of support may be provided with general social work services to assist them with services to maintain their independence. Nursing Home Transition Services are provided for individuals with disabilities who wish to move from a Nursing home back to the community.
IMPORTANT! The OBRA and Act 150 Waivers are not a part of Community Health Choices and we continue to provide Service Coordination in those waivers.
General Eligibility Criteria
To receive services, a person must comply with the following:
- Over age 18
- Be a person with a disability
- Determined to be in need of the particular service requested
- Determined eligible by the Independent Enrollment Broker
What is the Nursing Home Transition Services Program?
The program provides coordinated resources and services for adults to live independently in the community. NHT (Nursing Home Transition) services promote individual choice in long term living options. Any individual residing in Chester County in a nursing home who would like to return to the community is eligible for Nursing Home Transition services. The agency serves as the facilitator of NHT services for individuals with disabilities under the age of 60 and has a collaborative relationship with the Chester County Office of Aging for long term living services.
