Service Options Using Resources in a Community Environment
The SOURCE program is designed to help sick individuals with limited financial resources who can’t afford to pay for nursing home care services. It aims to help improve the well being of people with chronic health conditions without placing them in hospital or nursing facilities but supporting them to receive nursing services at their own homes.
Eligible individuals to receive support with the SOURCE program will be taken care of by skilled nurses in their homes or communities, which helps them avoid having to be placed in a hospital or nursing facility. The program supports their recovery and aims to help them have a life close to normal in the middle of their loving families and communities.
Our health care agency, Faith Medical Services, is an approved participating provider of home care and nursing services by the State of Georgia. We are here to offer home care services to adults in Georgia who are eligible to receive the SOURCE waiver.
So, if you or one of your loved ones qualify for the SOURCE program and need home care services, under the program, you may receive home care and nursing services from our company at no cost because we are reimbursed directly by the State of Georgia.
