True Direct Home Health Care is often asked by people caring for their loved one whether they can be paid for the work they do and the answer is… yes they can.
Most caregiving starts out as a labor of love, but it can quickly grow into an expensive and time consuming obligation. In these insecure times, caregivers like you are not only struggling with heavy financial responsibilities, but are also trying to deal with the amount of time needed to take care of their loved one.
True Direct Home Health Care is often asked by people caring for their loved one whether they can be paid for the work they do and the answer is… yes they can. Some states have waiver-based programs that help those in need of health and home care related services by reimbursing the caregiver of their choice -- and in many circumstances that reimbursement can be yourself or a family member receiving a salary or becoming employed through our Agency as a Certified Nursing Assistant or Home Health Aide. These programs — called variously, "consumer-directed," "participant-directed," "cash and counseling" or other titles — differ enormously depending on where you live. Luckily the state of PA has two programs for the disabled and the elderly that will allow you to get paid to be a caregiver for your loved one.
The first program is for people ages 60 and over and is for those who are in need of in-home assistance, personal care and other home based services. This is called a New Aging Waiver program.
The second program is for people aged 18-59 and is for those eligible and deal with a wide array of maladies and disabilities. This is called a Home and Community Based Waiver (HCBS) and is administered by the Pennsylvania Office of Long-Term Living (OLTL).
