The ADvantage Program provides an opportunity for frail elders and adults with physical disabilities to stay at home instead of residing in a nursing home. Persons served through this program can receive the services they need in their own home or in a family member’s home.
Administered by Oklahoma Human Services, the program is funded through a partnership between the federal and state governments via a waiver to the Medicaid Program.
The goal of the ADvantage Program is to offer a choice to those who would otherwise have to receive services in a nursing home. It is an appropriate service for individuals whose needs can best be met at home, but it does not replace nursing home care in all cases. It does not replace the care the family and friends provide in the home.
EODD offers services in Adair, Cherokee, Creek, Delaware, Hughes, McIntosh, Muskogee, Okfuskee, Okmulgee, Osage, Rogers, Sequoyah, Tulsa and Wagoner Counties.
Eligibility for the ADvantage Program is determined by the Oklahoma Department of Human Services. For more information or to make a referral, contact Amber Jennings of EODD at (918) 682-7891 or contact your county DHS office.
