New Opportunities Waiver (NOW)
The New Opportunities Waiver replaced the Mentally Retarded and Developmentally Disabled Waiver in 2003. The goal of the program is to uphold self determination to supplement the family while the recipient is in the community. The services offered by NOW are almost the same as CCW except that it highlights self-empowerment through these services:
- Self Direction Option
- Employment-Related Training
- Supported Employment and Transportation
New Day Personal Care Services provides supported living, respite, and skilled nursing services to patients who are qualified for NOW. We encourage you to take advantage of this program for yourself or your loved one today. You may call us at 337-264-7128 for details.
