EDWP Case Management Agency
Private care managers are health care professionals with a background in nursing, social work, gerontology, family counseling, & etc., who specialize in elder care issues and are trained to help family caregivers by:
* assessing the particular needs of a family; the level of care needed and the living situation;
* helping them navigate the medical system; and planning and supervising care, among other services.
MTMS provides an assessment of the individual’s needs and re-evaluates the client’s needs frequently.
Families living out of town or out of state can rely on our staff to monitor the client and the services on a regular basis. The care manager follows up with the individual to be sure the person’s needs continue to be met. If the situation changes, a reassessment will be made and new services arranged if necessary.
MFP is a joint initiative between the Georgia Department of Community Health (DCH), the Georgia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities (DBHDD), and the Georgia Department of Human Services (DHS) Division of Aging Services (DAS). The project's goal is to transition Georgians residing in institutional settings to the community primarily through the use of Georgia's Medicaid waiver programs - the Elderly and Disabled Waiver Program (EDWP), the Independent Care Waiver Program (ICWP), the New Options Waiver (NOW), and the Comprehensive Support (COMP) Waiver.
Structured Family Caregiving (SFC) is a program that was approved to help support family members by providing 24-hour care for an elderly or disabled family member. This program is to help live-in family caregivers who are unable to work outside of the home because of caregiving responsibilities. SFC provides support by health coaches and the provision of a daily stipend.
