A new brochure from the Minnesota Department of Human Services (DHS) will help consumers better understand Elderly Waiver (EW) services in assisted living, including eligibility and the application process.
Elderly Waiver Services in Assisted Living: What You Need to Know is intended for older adults who are seeking EW services and their family members. It was designed to specifically address how to get help exploring options, including the application process to pay for services, common questions and concerns regarding eligibility, and key questions to ask assisted living providers about their EW policies.
Providers may want to have this informational brochure available for prospective or current residents who may be eligible or have questions about the Elderly Waiver Program. The DHS-7935-ENG Elderly Waiver Services in Assisted Living: What You Need to Know brochure is available through eDocs and can be ordered for free at the DHS Bulk Ordering web page.
