The mission of Sweetwater Care is to empower and improve the lives of individuals with special needs. Through our ability to compassionately and cohesively coordinate and provide services such as respite, habilitation, and attendant care, as well as an adult day program, group homes and employment training, every aspect of every need is addressed.
The Family Care program integrates home and community-based services, institutional care (such as nursing home care), Medicaid personal care, home health, and other community-based services that were previously funded separately. Family Care does NOT pay health care costs (acute/primary care) such as hospital stays, emergency room visits, medications, and doctor visits. Family Care participants use
Medicare and Medicaid to purchase these health care services.
At a minimum, the service coordination team includes a registered nurse, social worker, and the member. Members may choose to include family members, loved ones, and other professionals to participate on their team.
