Easterseals is excited to offer the Agency With Choice (AWC) to individuals enrolled in the Medicaid Lifespan Waiver through the Division of Developmental Disabilities Services!
If you live in your own private residence or in the home of a family member, Easterseals can help you in accessing up to $2,700 a year to use as you need through the Agency with Choice program.
With a referral by your Community Navigator, our Agency With Choice Coordinators can help you to recruit, hire, train and supervise your caregivers! You may choose to use your funds for respite services, such a Camp, or for personal care.
Easterseals AWC coordinators can answer your questions and assist you with enrollment paperwork. Your $2,700 annual allotment can be used to pay the caregiver that you choose or to pay to attend respite camps, as approved by your Community Navigator.
For more information on Easterseals Agency With Choice call us at (302) 324-4444 and ask to speak with our Agency With Choice (AWC) team or email us at: DDDS_AWC@esdel.org
