What Does Transition Mean?
Transition means moving home from a nursing facility. Sometimes, a person stays in a nursing home because they do not have the means to go home or start over.
A person doesn’t always need the higher level of service delivered in a nursing home when they could receive home and community-based services.
Who Can Use This Program?
ANYONE interested in seeking to return home from a nursing home. A person may qualify if they private pay, receive Medicare, Medicaid, or is dual-eligible.
It is important for family or a community member to be available and provide informal support.
