Nursing Facility Transition (NFT)

The Nursing Facility Transition program provides nursing facility residents the opportunity to transition back to the community. The participant may choose to return to their home, move in with family or friends, find an apartment or choose another living option in the community which could include a licensed adult foster care or homes for the aged. Transition planning with our licensed social workers and/or registered nurses helps identify appropriate support and services needed to make the transition.
Supports and services needed after the participant transitions to the community may be available to those who meet medical and financial guidelines. A referral may be necessary and can be made by a nursing facility resident, social worker, family member, legal guardian or friend.
