Growing older comes with a lot of pros like wisdom and experience, but it also comes with some significant cons, such as failing health, declining physical and mental acuity, and more. Georgia residents experiencing the effects of aging may begin to need additional help with daily tasks, but are not yet ready to go into a nursing home. It is possible that a Medicaid waiver could help make it possible to receive benefits and remain at home as well.
A disability or other medical condition does not mean that a Georgia resident should not enjoy as much independence as possible up until it is no longer a viable option. When an aging person needs help bathing, shopping, dressing and doing other similar daily tasks, it does not mean he or she does not still retain the mental acuity or health to remain at home. Under these circumstances, having someone come in to help could prove invaluable, but paying for it could be an issue.
