Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS)
Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) are designed to help people in their own home or community, rather than moving to a facility such as an ALF or nursing home. These programs can also provide caregivers with supportive services such as Adult Day Care. HCBS offers Health Services to meet medical needs and Human Services that support daily living needs. Programs may offer a combination of both types of services.
