Description of Service
The Nursing Home Transition (NHT) Program is designed to assist and empower participants who want to move from a nursing facility back to a home of their choice in the community. When given choice, an overwhelming number of people say they want to age in place in their homes rather than in institutions. The NHT program provides the opportunity for participants and their families or caregivers to be fully informed of all long-term services and supports options, including the full range of available home and community-based services (HCBS). Through the NHT program, participants can receive the guidance and support they need to make informed choices about their long-term services and supports. The program assists participants in moving out of institutions and eliminates barriers in service systems, as well as physical barriers by providing home modifications so that participants receive services and supports in settings of their choice.
