Elderly Disabled Waiver Program (EDWP)

EDWP helps people who are elderly and/or disabled to continue living in their homes and communities. EDWP offers community-based care as an alternative to nursing home placement and offers Georgians a greater choice in deciding where to live and what assistance they need. EDWP helps clients to help themselves, stay in control of their lives, and maintain a presence in their community.

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. 

Money Follows the Person (MFP)

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 Care (SFC)
