Nursing Home Diversion Program

The Nursing Home Diversion Program is designed to enable people living with disabilities to live independently and remain in their homes rather than moving to a more restrictive and expensive setting.  

The program provides home modifications, such as widening a doorway to accommodate a wheelchair; installing grab bars to make the shower safer; or building a ramp to provide easier access in and out of the home.

Staying at home, rather than moving to an institution, enables a person living with a disability to participate in their community.   To learn more about the Nursing Home Diversion program, please visit our profile of Wendy Strickland.
