I had a feeling.
Yesterday I followed up with the social worker for the county. True to form, B did not meet the requirements for the EDCD Waiver.
As I suspected, it was mostly based on not being able to document an on-going medical/nursing need. I mean, I provided all the medical stuff to them – but clearly he was “not disabled” enough. Never mind all the other physical/cognitive difficulties.
Anyway, back to the DD Waiver list I go. Left a message with that person and we’ll go from there.
I am blessed that we manage on our own, that we have our own insurance, and he gets services from his IEP. I know that. I just wish he can get everything that he is entitled to.
Too many people, too little coin to spread around.
