As a home care agency enrolled in the Home Care Pulse Quality Management Program, we have proven our commitment to clients’ satisfaction with monthly third-party verification of quality client care.
Leaders in Dementia Care recognize a commitment to training staff in order to better care for those affected by Alzheimer’s disease. Extended Family Home Care has earned the distinction as a “Leader in Dementia Care” by the Alzheimer’s Association of Colorado.
A proud partner of the Home Care Pulse Quality Management Program, we take great pride in being an industry leader for several years in caregiver satisfaction, training, and compensation.
By providing only the services people need at home, home care can significantly reduce the cost of care and the burden for clients and taxpayers.
Clients who receive home care have the privilege of establishing trusting relationships with consistent caregivers and are able to receive care in the privacy of their homes.
Home care allows people to hang on to the things that mean the most to them while still getting the assistance and care they need – the familiarity of home, the comfort of their own bed, and all of those memories left at the kitchen table throughout the years.
Our aging population is at higher risk of falls due to being left alone often, reductions in vision, hearing, balance, and mobility. Unfamiliar surroundings can increase this risk; things like rugs or small steps may not be anticipated in advance.
By providing the assistance they need in an environment they know well, we can reduce the risk of surprises, falls, and debilitating and painful injuries.
But clients who are able to receive care in their own home can welcome guests, invite family overnight, and have private conversations without interruption. They can receive phone calls and house calls whenever they choose with no limit on visiting hours.
