The vast majority of Louisianans want to age at home, but that’s not always easy to do, especially for those who need help with tasks of daily living, such as transportation, bathing and preparing meals.

As part of the LiveAtHomeLA coalition, AARP Louisiana is advocating for the nearly 30,000 people awaiting approval of waivers that would provide such services in their own homes. The Community Choices Waiver helps older and disabled Louisianans with home modifications, meal delivery and other services.

The Adult Day Health Care Waiver provides supervised care for adults in a safe and supportive environment during daytime hours, providing peace of mind for family caregivers who work full- or part-time.

Still waiting for a waiver for yourself or a loved one? Email LiveAtHomeLA@gmail.com or call 225-376-1146.
