Caring for Children with Disabilities: How Leading Home Care Can Help

Feeling tired and overwhelmed? You’re not alone. Caring for a child with disabilities can be challenging, and sometimes you need extra support. At Leading Home Care, we understand the demands and are here to help. Our professional caregivers are dedicated to providing the best care possible, ensuring your child maintains their independence while receiving necessary assistance.

What is the Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnostic, and Treatment (EPSDT) Program?

The EPSDT program is designed to help children with disabilities manage activities of daily living (ADLs). These tasks include personal care activities such as:

  • Toileting
  • Grooming
  • Bathing
  • Dressing
  • Assistance with eating and food preparation
  • Household chores

EPSDT ensures that children receive the care they need to thrive at home.

Who Qualifies for EPSDT?

Medicaid recipients who are 20 years old or younger and meet the medically necessary criteria are eligible for EPSDT services. If your child qualifies, they can receive up to 4 hours of care a day, 7 days a week, right in the comfort of your home.
