This initial step involves a thorough assessment to determine if you qualify for the program.


What can I expect?

Upon completing the intake process, our team will contact you for an initial discussion and may schedule a more detailed interview to provide an in-depth understanding of the NFHT Program. Active participation in crafting a transition plan that reflects your specific needs and choices is crucial. For those planning to return to their homes, we offer evaluations to recommend necessary modifications for a seamless transition. We also support locating affordable housing and identifying essential programs and services to uphold your independence.


How do we help?

Our approach includes coordinating your transition from a nursing facility or hospital to a community-based setting and managing any long-term care services you may require for ongoing independence.
