Assisted Living Waiver (ALW)
COMPASSIONATE CARE WHEN YOU NEED IT MOST
Calstro Hospice participates in the ALW (Assisted Living Waiver) Program. This program is uniquely designed to help participants transition from the hospital and skilled-nursing facility setting and into a more appropriate long-term setting
Your Partner in More ways than One
As a CCA (Care Coordination Agency), Calstro Hospice is perfectly positioned to assist in the placement needs of you, your loved one, or your resident. The goal of the ALW is to:
Facilitate a safe and timely transition of Medi-Cal eligible seniors and persons with disabilities from a nursing facility to a community home-like setting in a Residential Care Facility (RCF), an Adult Residential Care Facility (ARF), or public subsidized housing, utilizing ALW services.
Offer eligible seniors and persons with disabilities, who reside in the community, but are at risk of being institutionalized, the option of utilizing ALW services to develop a program that will safely meet his/her care needs while continuing to reside in a RCF, ARF, or public subsidized housing.
Assisted Living Waiver
Per the DHCS website: The Assisted Living Waiver (ALW) is a Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) waiver that was created by legislation that directed the California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) to develop and implement the project to test the efficacy of assisted living as a Medi-Cal benefit (please see link below to navigate to DHCS website).
