Going Home Plus: Independence, Dignity, Choice
Transitioning individuals from hospitals, nursing facilities, and ICF-ID to community settings. 749 Successful Transitions Since 2009!
The Going Home Plus (GHP) project helps residents who have been living in hospitals, nursing facilities, and ICF/ID facilities move back into the community. For those residents who choose to live in the community, the GHP project will assist in finding housing (if the resident does not have a home to return to) and services (for example, help with cooking and bathing).
Individuals from all islands are eligible to participate.
The Going Home Plus (GHP) project is funded by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Money Follows the Person Rebalancing Demonstration grant through June 30, 2020. The project is a partnership between the Hawaii Department of Human Services Med-Quest Division and the University of Hawaii Center on Disability Studies.
Spouse: “I was hesitant and scared having him go home without a leg as it was a new life changing experience. Services and equipment were delivered which made it easier and more comfortable. The hospital gave up, but with the services and therapy, he is able to stand and transfer from bed to (wheel)chair and continues to make progress."
