  • Home and Community Based Waiver Services
    The Office of Aging and Adult Services (OAAS) administers home and community based long-term care services (HCBS) through various waiver and state plan programs for individuals who are elderly or have disabilities, assisting them to remain in their homes and in the community. The intent of these HCBS programs is to provide services and supports that are not otherwise available and that assist an individual to remain in or return to the community.  These programs do not individually or in combination provide 24-hour-per-day supports.  This means that in many cases it may be necessary and desirable for individuals to use other paid and unpaid supports at their disposal.
