Caring for a loved one presents a unique challenge, especially when the responsibility descends upon you suddenly. We are proud to call ourselves Extended Family because that is exactly what we intend on being for your family. The Colorado community has entrusted us with the well-being of their loved ones for over fifteen years and we take this very seriously. Our in-home care services in Denver are carried out by our wonderful team, who is dedicated to providing quality care and a safety net of support. We are committed to supporting and empowering seniors in remaining in their homes where they can maintain a healthy sense of independence and personal dignity. Together we approach each client as if they are a member of our own family.
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 with our in-home care services in Denver.
By providing only the services people need at home, Extended Family 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. This is what we strive for as a Denver home care agency.
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.
We can provide from just a few hours of service a week to full-time in-home care. Our 24-hour care service includes a team of caregivers with a personalized care plan to suit the individual needs of each client. Around-the-clock care offers you and your family full-time peace of mind.
We want our clients to look and feel their best. Personal care services enhance their mental and physical well-being, helping them to feel positive about their appearance. We provide assistance with bathing, dressing, grooming, and bathroom care.
We are happy to announce that Extended Family has expanded its services to provide our community with home cleaning services. This service provides more extensive home cleaning than the light housekeeping services included in our home care service.
With the challenging and important responsibility of being the primary caregiver of a family member or friend, one needs to tend to one’s own physical, spiritual, and emotional needs. Respite care allows us to temporarily care for your family member when you are unable.
Our short-term recovery services are an outstanding solution that allows adults to recover following surgery, an illness, or an accident. Our services can mean a shorter stay in a rehabilitation facility, and it’s proven that people rebound more quickly in the comfort of their own homes.
