Founded by healthcare professionals in 1983, Home Nurse was created to provide quality and affordable senior care. The newly updated service includes expert assistance in securing SFC support and helping clients to become paid caregivers.

For local families, the updated service creates a more sustainable situation that allows loved ones to continue to receive care from familiar faces in a comforting home environment. Home Nurse Inc has years of experience with SFC admin and provides professional assistance through the application process.
The Structured Family Caregiving program is provided through Medicaid, with some requirements to qualify. Family members must live with the client in the same home and have to be over the age of 18.
It is also important for the caregiver to be related biologically or through marriage. This eliminates spouses or guardians from consideration. In addition to this, the person receiving care must participate in Medicaid under the CCSP or SOURCE waiver program.
The program provides financial stability for eligible family members through weekly payments made directly to their bank accounts. Further education and skill development are also included, with health coaching and guidance from the Home Nurse team.
The program offers support and training for those who provide housekeeping, bathing, meal preparation, and dressing for family members. Other services include personal hygiene care and assistance, managing clients’ appointments or medication, and carrying out tasks related to their general safety and well-being.
A form is provided on the Home Nurse website, which includes personal and location information and Medicaid confirmation for the client in question. Once the form is completed, a team member will consult with the applicant and provide guidance on the next steps.
A spokesperson states: “The Structured Family Caregiving program offers financial support services to Georgia families that deliver care at home for a senior or disabled person. You can become a paid caregiver for a family member at home in Georgia.”
