Frequently Asked Questions
How are care costs covered?
Guardian Care is proud to be an Indiana Medicaid Home Care Provider. We work with the Indiana Family and Social Services Administration (FSSA) to provide comprehensive Home Health Services to Indiana residents. Traditional Medicaid is a program created to provide health care coverage to individuals with low income. Like other health care programs, eligibility and coverage are based on the member’s aid category.
We also accept private pay and some long term care insurance options.
Guardian Care is certified to provide services for the following Medicaid Waivers:
Aged and Disabled Waiver (A&D) The Aged and Disabled Waiver provides an alternative to nursing facility admission for people who are aged, blind, or disabled. There is not an age requirement to qualify for this waiver. The waiver is designed to provide services to supplement informal supports for people who would require care in a nursing facility if waiver services or other supports were not available. Available services for A&D Waiver.
Traumatic Brain Injury Waiver (TBI) The Traumatic Brain Injury Waiver provides services to Medicaid eligible people of any age who have experienced an external insult resulting in a traumatic brain injury and who require services ordinarily only available in a nursing facility.

What is 2-1-1?
It is a three-digit phone number that anyone can call, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to get free information about health and human services.
Trained and caring Information and Referral Specialists answer the 211 calls, discuss the caller’s needs, and offer referrals to human service programs, such as housing, food, financial help with rent or utilities, health care, legal aid, counseling, and much more.
What qualifications do you need to be a caregiver?
There are no specific qualifications or certifications needed to be a paid caregiver. You do not have to be a home health aide (HHA) or a CNA (certified nursing assistant) to do this job. Because Guardian Care is a non-medical provider. you will be doing non-skilled care only.
How many hours of attendant care can I receive?
We understand that the care for clients who experience chronic, complex health needs, extends beyond usual parenting responsibilities. Because of this, the number of hours is not the focus. We recommend that every caregiver make a detailed 24/7 schedule. We know you are providing care during many, or even all, hours of the day and night . Many of these caregiving activities involve sustained attention and physical labor and must be performed multiple times each day. We want to ensure that the clients' needs are met and the parents' needs are supported either financially or through respite care.
Who can be a caregiver?
Whether you are a parent of a child with medical complexities or a family member/friend caring for your loved one, you can be a paid caregiver. We can help you navigate this process but you must first pass a background check to get started.
What are the steps in the hiring process?
Our entire onboarding process is done virtually. There is no in-person requirement. We understand that caring for someone with medical complexities does not always allow you the opportunity to leave the house. We are here to meet you where your needs are.
Do I have to stay home while providing attendant care?
No. Parents are frontline public health workers. They nurture, support, supervise and teach healthy habits to ensure their child is safe and supported in their community and to help their child get the education and health care they need. In order to do this, you often have to take your child and leave the home. Attendant care be provided anywhere you are with your child, to exclude hospital admissions.
Can I work another job and still have attendant care?
In addition to caregiving duties, many parents of complex medical children must also stay employed for regular income and also to keep their family’s health insurance. As a result, you may have another job on top of the attendant care you receive.
