elderly and disabled waiver programs accepted
The Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals (LDH) coordinates various statewide medicaid waiver programs to make services accessible to all individuals and families who qualify for Medicaid. Among these programs are elderly and disabled waiver programs and home and community based waivers. These cover services such as personalized in-home caregiving from our highly-trained caregivers.
