What Is the CADI Waiver, and How Does It Help?


Among the many sources of public aid provided to children and adults with complex daily living needs in Minnesota, the Community Access for Disability Inclusion (CADI) waiver is one of the most helpful. Cardenas Friendship Homes, your trusted assisted living facility in Burnsville, Minnesota, would like to explain what this resource provides to your loved ones and how we are one of your trusted providers for its services.

First things first: what is the CADI waiver, and why is it a good source of elderly care?

It is a program from the Department of Human Services in Minnesota designed to fund care services for children and adults who have a disability and require nursing facility-level care. Instead of being confined in a care center, people benefitting from the waiver get to choose where they receive care, whether it’s at home, in foster care homes, or in senior living communities.

Its waivered care services cover a variety of needs, including case management, adult companionship, day support services, help with activities of daily living, and even meals. To qualify, the person must be a certified disabled, be on or eligible for MA, be under the age of 65 when the waiver was opened for the first time, have a professionally assessed need for support and services over and above those available in other funding sources, and have chosen to receive care in the community.

Our assisted living home is one of the state’s certified CADI Waiver Care homes. We gladly cooperate with your chosen source of funding to create the ideal care experience for your loved one.
