Home and Community Based Services (HCBS)

Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) are provided to children and teens (under the age of 21) who are enrolled or eligible for Medicaid and require additional care at home and/or in the community. HCBS is intended to provide children and teens with a wide range of developmentally and culturally relevant services. HCBS are frequently designed to allow individuals to remain in their homes rather than be admitted to a facility for care. Our program strives to deliver care that is highly customized, attentive, and well-trained. These characteristics apply to three major areas of service: Attendant Care, Habilitation, and Respite in the member's home and community.

  • Respite Care Program(RSP)
  • Attendant Care (ATC)
  • Habilitation Hourly (HAH)

Respite Care Program (RSP)

Our caring team is dedicated to assisting persons with intellectual/developmental disabilities (I/DD) in living their lives to the fullest. Our comprehensive services can help the entire family. Participants in the program are provided with services that allow them to thrive, strive for independence, and contribute to community life. Our experts will provide carers with informed answers as well as referrals to helpful programs that can benefit the entire family. Here are the important benefits of Respite

  • Short-term, temporary relief. Relieving family members from the demanding responsibility of providing care to their loved one
  • We provide care and supervision to protect a person’s safety in the absence of a family member.
  • We help to meet basic needs and other responsibilities
  • Respite is the most requested service by family members, and yet it is incredibly in short supply
  • Respite enables people with I/DD to stay in their own home

Attendant Care Program (ATC)

Attendant care services are offered to those who have difficulty completing self-care and daily living tasks. These services are frequently offered to those who are disabled or have been injured. Our ATC service assists members in remaining at home and participating in community events. They can effectively integrate into society if they are assisted in maintaining their personal hygiene, everyday routines, and safe and hygienic living situations. Our services include:

  • Meal preparation and clean up
  • Eating and assistance with eating
  • Bathing
  • Dressing and grooming
  • Toileting
  • Mobility

Habiliation Hourly (HAH)

Through the hourly habilitation program, Marley Healing Hand is delighted to provide members and their families who live at home or on their own with a number of valuable services to help them live a more balanced and regulated life. The purpose of this program is to assist each member in achieving success in all aspects of community life. Hourly habilitation is intended to assist individuals in living independently. Our Habilitation Specialists teach members new skills to help them gain independence. These programs are offered to help members improve their social skills, personal hygiene, and other self-help abilities so that they can keep their independence. This program allows each participant to build a feeling of dignity and self-worth.
