Money Follows the Person

BCID is partnering with the New York Association on Independent Living on “Money Follows the Person”.  The program is intended to increase the number of people in nursing homes and intermediate care facilities (ICF/IIDs) who are able to access home and community based services. Dancis Tamares has joined BCID as a Transition Specialist to directly assist people in nursing homes and ICF/IIDs in Brooklyn in accessing the services they need to return to the community. The program will also offer a Peer Outreach and Referral Program with one-on-one support from individuals who have lived the experience. For more information, contact Dancis Tamares at dtamares@bcid.org

Our Services to individuals are provided without charge. To make an appointment, or to find out more about our programs, including support groups, please call 718-998-3000 or email at info@bcid.org
