HomeChoice® can provide low-income services through Consumer-Directed Attendant Care (CDAC) Elderly Waiver. To qualify, you must be approved by a case manager. For more information, please contact Aging Services, Inc. in the Cedar Rapids area and Aging Resources of Central Iowa in the Des Moines area.
Agency staff will work to match the individual with appropriate community services including housing, funding, and medical needs. They can offer alternatives to out-of-home or institutional placement when appropriate.
They are so responsive and help make my job so much easier
Whenever we have a new client, HomeChoice is always willing to work with them. They are so responsive and help make my job so much easier because they always answer their phones and are always willing to go meet my clients the same day I call! I have a busy caseload and they make working with our mutual client easy by communicating regularly and through their flexibility. They treat all of our clients with respect and do their best to meet their needs and desires.

Aging Resources helped me get approved
I really wanted to stay in my home but was starting to have problems with getting some of my house work done on my own. I was afraid that I wouldn’t be able to afford home care but when I talked to Aging Resources they helped me get approved for CDAC Elderly Waiver services and directed me to HomeChoice Senior Care. HomeChoice was more than willing to work with my Elderly Waiver, and Jordan and all of the staff there are just so helpful. Now am I able to safely stay in my home with some extra help each month from HomeChoice.

Mom qualified and now she has a caregiver
We were referred to HomeChoice® after Mom was discharged from the hospital following an illness. She needed help at home, but we just couldn’t afford to pay for a caregiver. Steve at HomeChoice told us about the Medicaid Elderly Waiver program and helped us get in touch with a caseworker through Aging Services who helped us apply for the program. Mom qualified and now she has a caregiver that comes in to help her a few hours a week. It’s such a relief for all of us. We wouldn’t have known about this program without Steve and the HomeChoice team!
