CAP/DA Lead Agency Service Provider for Davidson County, NC.
CAP/DA stands for the Community Alternatives Program for Disabled Adults. It is a special Medicaid program that saves money by allowing people to get services so that they can stay at home at a lower cost than nursing facility placement. CAP/DA is an alternative to nursing home care for adults who:
· Are 18 or over
· Live in Davidson County
· Require Nursing Home Level of Care
· Meet financial criteria
· Have family or friends willing to help make sure his or her needs are met
CAP/DA is intended for individuals who have very limited financial resources. They must be eligible for Medicaid. Medicaid eligibility for CAP/DA differs from regular Medicaid because the income and assets of the potential participant are counted, not the income of the family or spouse.
Some of the services provided by CAP/DA include:
· More extensive in-home care
· Adult Day Health
· Nutritional Supplements
· Incontinence Products
· Case Management
· Personal Emergency Response Services
· Any regular Medicaid services that the person is entitled to
CAP/DA cannot provide 24 hour care for someone who requires it. Family and or/friend support is a requirement to participate in the program. All of the services that Medicaid provides must be within a cost limit. There is a waiting list for CAP/DA and services cannot be started right away. For individuals with incomes exceeding the Medicaid limit, there may be significant financial cost to participate in CAP/DA.
