In order to meet the requirements for the new program, applicants must be at least 18 years of age and related to the person receiving their care, either biologically or through marriage as a daughter-in-law, son-in-law, or other similar relationships. Applicants must also live in the same household as their family member and cannot currently be receiving income from employment outside the home or via a home-run business. The caregiver will be eligible for financial aid from Home Nurse Inc if they perform daily tasks for their family member, including meal preparation, feeding, bathing, dressing, transportation, getting in and out of bed, movement around the house, and other living activities.
Family members will qualify for care in the SFC Program if they require assistance with the aforementioned daily activities. Additionally, they must be eligible for Georgia Medicaid and participate in the CCSP or SOURCE waiver program for the applicant to receive financial compensation. Once accepted into the SFC Program, Home Nurse Inc will provide the caregiver with coaching from a health professional, personalized care plans developed by the agency’s SFC staff, and a weekly, tax-free stipend.
