Sherburne County Health and Human Services provides case management and support services to persons with disabilities with the goal of assisting individuals to live as independently as possible in the least restrictive setting.
Home care provides medical and health-related services and assistance with day-to-day activities to people in their home. It can be used to provide short-term care for people moving from a hospital or nursing home back to their home, or it can also be used to provide continuing care to people with ongoing needs. Home care services may also be provided outside the person's home when normal life activities take them away from home.
Home and Community Based Waivers
Minnesotan residents with disabilities or chronic illnesses who need certain levels of care may qualify for the state's home and community based waiver programs. Waivers are intended to promote community living and independence by providing health care and support services based on individual needs. Waivered services are used to supplement, not replace, other funding sources such as insurance, Medical Assistance or Medicare.
SNBC is a voluntary managed care program for people with disabilities ages 18 through 64 who have Medical Assistance. Enrollees may have a care coordinator or navigator to help them get health care and support services.
