  • The Home and Community Services Division of DSHS will open a new home and community based waiver on August 1, 2014. Read more...

    The Residential Support waiver will serve individuals moving from Eastern and Western State hospitals or community hospital psychiatric units who are stable and ready for discharge to a community setting.  Waiver services include specialized AFH services, skilled nursing, nurse delegation, client support training which includes behavioral training and consultation, and specialized medical equipment and supplies.

    1. A Washington State AFH license for at least 12 months;
    2. No significant enforcement actions during the prior 12 months;
    3. Demonstrable history working with people with behavioral challenges; and
    4. The ability to meet all contractual requirements for this new service.
