Are you or someone you know living in a nursing home or other long-term care facility? Are you interested in moving back home to the community? The Hawai‘i Going Home Plus (GHP)project can help to explore community choices and services available, create a care plan to meet your individual needs, and find the housing and services to help you.
The GHP project helps older adults living in hospitals or nursing facilities for three months or longer. They will assist older adults in finding housing (subsidized or adult foster home) if the older adult does not have a home to return to. Assistance with cooking and bathing are also available.
GHP is a federally grant funded program from the Centers on Medicare and Medicaid Services that began in 2007, operated by the Hawai‘i Department of Human Services, Med-Quest Division.
Who is eligible for help?
