LINC offers a variety of services to those who want to maintain their independence. The Idaho Department of Health and Welfare developed a program called the Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) waiver, the Aged and Disabled Waiver (A&D), allowing elderly and adults with disabilities the opportunity to receive home and community care. This valuable program preserves your independence as well as your ties to family and friends.
After determining eligibility and unmet needs, Medicaid may approve services under the HCBS waiver.
Personal Assistance Services
We provide services to individuals capable of making their own decisions in self-directing their care. With self-direction, you determine the supports that help you reach your unique independent living goals. With the freedom to hire, train, and schedule your personal assistants, you can build a care plan unique to your needs. We also handle billing and payroll and maintain employment records for personal assistants. And most importantly, you remain in your own home and self-direct your independence.
