Care Management for Seniors (NHTD)

Care managers work with folks with physical disabilities and seniors to ensure they are able to live as independently as possible while receiving the services they need.

About the NHTD Waiver

The Nursing Home Transition and Diversion (NHTD) Waiver is one of the options available to New Yorkers with disabilities and to seniors so they may receive services in the most appropriate, least restrictive setting.
