EDCD Waiver – Elderly or Disabled with Consumer Direction Waiver
The EDCD Waiver got its start in Virginia in 2005, merging two existing waivers. It’s designed to prevent nursing home placement by providing significant care in the applicant’s home.
The EDCD Waiver provides services that help individuals live in their own home or community instead of a nursing home. It is available to individuals 65 years of age and older, and to individuals of any age who have a disability. Individuals who depend on another person for their supports and have medical or nursing needs may be eligible for the EDCD Waiver.
