Description:

Ohio Home Care is for eligible adults age 59 and younger (under 60).  Services include nursing, personal care assistance and/or skilled therapy, plus waiver-specific services such as home modifications, home-delivered meals, adult day health care, respite care, supplemental transportation, adaptive/assistive devices, and emergency response systems. Eligible participants must be financially eligible for Medicaid and be assessed for an intermediate or skilled level of care. Without the Ohio Home Care Waiver Program, participants would be at risk for hospital or nursing home placement. Click here for more information.  Approved participants instead receive care and services at home.  There may be a waiting list for this program.  Contact your county Department of Job and Family Services for information about applying for this program. More information is also available by contacting CareStar or Council on Aging, care management providers for the Ohio Home Care waiver.

  • Transitions MR/DD Waiver Program provides the identical services, providers and administration as the Ohio Home Care Waiver Program but serves consumers who were transferred from the Ohio Home Care Waiver because they were identified as having an ICF-MR (intermediate care for people with developmental disabilities) level of care. Contact your county Department of Job and Family Services for information about applying for this program.
  • PASSPORT provides the identical services, providers and administration as the Ohio Home Care Waiver Program but serves consumers who were transferred from the Ohio Home Care Waiver because they turned 60.
