Home and Community Based Services (HCS)

We Maximize Independence for the Developmentally Disabled

Our goal is to help those with special needs to be as comfortable and as self-regulating as possible.  In support of our goals, Wellness Healthcare Solutions offers practical, workable and affordable types of Home and Community Services (HCS) in 25 counties in the state of Texas. 

The overall goal of the HCS program is founded on being able to assist consumers in being as independent as possible as they live and work within the community.

The HCS program is a Medicaid Waiver program that provides services to individuals with mental retardation.  These individuals are either residing with their families, in their own home, in a foster/companion care setting or in a residence with no more than four individuals who receive HCS services.

Wellness Healthcare Solutions provides a multitude of specialized services under HCS, which include the following:

  • Case Management: Wellness Healthcare Solutions delivers the most essential elements of case management, which includes: client in-take, assessment of need, service planning, service coordination and linking.  It also delivers monitoring and continuous evaluation of the client, of service delivery, and of available resources.
