6 Reasons to Choose Extended Family Home Care

We all share similar concerns about our aging loved ones.

We know there’s no place like home, a familiar place filled with the love of family and friends. Aging presents challenges for the entire family and we help them find solutions that bring peace of mind.

Home care offers cost savings.

Many times, an aging loved one is placed in a long-term care facility when they’re no longer able to manage one aspect of their care at home, such as meal preparation or bathing, simply due to lack of options.

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.

Home care maintains dignity.

While long-term care facilities aim to provide the best experience possible, many aspects of care in those facilities are undesired, like sharing personal spaces (bedroom, bathroom) and having many different caregivers assist with toileting and bathing.

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 soothes the soul.

Aging can come with a variety of challenges and obstacles, including losing loved ones as they age and pass away, losing the privilege to drive, and losing independence.

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.

Home care provides safety benefits.

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.

Home care allows loved ones a choice.

Home care serves a critical role in the healthcare system by allowing clients more opportunities to make decisions about their care. It’s very difficult, in most cases, to move out of a facility once a person has moved in. So, choosing home care while it’s a viable option is a way to keep options open as long as possible.

Home care promotes nurturing relationships.

Sadly, many elderly people find that their relationships with loved ones change when they move out of their homes.

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.

Extended Family has been a godsend for my family. Especially my grandmother. My Grandmother's quality of life has been enhanced in so many ways since they came into her home. Don't look any further if you are looking for intimate, trustworthy, and amazing caregivers.

Our experience with Extended Family Home Care has been 100% positive. My mother was in an Independent Living facility, but needed some assistance in the mornings as she slowed down and her dementia got worse. We interviewed a few agencies, but Extended Family immediately had the right feel for us. I was especially impressed with the lengthy conversations I had with Leah as she figured out what services would be beneficial for my mom, what she enjoyed, and which caregiver would be the best match for her. We were so fortunate to have Susan as our caregiver. She was kind, compassionate, caring, and she knew exactly what my mom needed. She came 3 mornings a week and helped her with breakfast, showering, dressing, tidied up, did laundry, kept her apartment organized, and left her with a delicious healthy lunch plate. She also did a lot of extra things, such as painting her nails, going on short walks and providing friendly conversation as they got to know each other. Until the COVID19 restrictions, I was able to help and visit my mom on most days that Susan wasn't there. However, once restrictions were in place, Susan was my mom's only help. During that time, her friendship with my mom became essential. Susan's care and compassion was a life saver for us. She became my connection with my mom, letting me know how she was doing and what groceries/supplies she needed. The care Susan provided for my mom was excellent, but she also helped me, by being there when I couldn't. I never worried on the days that Susan was there. Extended Family excels at communication. Leah and Jon both were easy to contact, and very responsive. It seems that Leah could be reached at any time of the day. Both of them were helpful with any schedule changes, and were willing to work with me whenever I had a question. Unfortunately my mom's situation changed, and she had to move into Assisted Living, so we no longer need the help from Extended Family. I would recommend them to anyone who wants quality compassionate care for a loved one.

I highly recommend Extended Family Home Care in the Denver metro area. The company is extremely professional and compassionate. They sent several caregivers to our home over a ~2 year period to help with my elderly mother, who suffered from dementia and had various other medical conditions. Each caregiver was fantastic. Clearly the company takes hiring very seriously. They don't just hire 'warm bodies'. Instead they hire caring, patient and intelligent caregivers who are willing to do whatever it takes to help, including helping with things around the house such as vacuuming, laundry... Additionally, scheduling through Rachel and Leah was a breeze. You simply can't go wrong with Extended Family Home Care.

I cannot say enough good things about Extended Family Home Care! My mom suffered a stroke that left her totally bedridden for the last two years of her life. Over the course of her illness, we tried a long-term care facility and two other home-care companies before we found Extended Family. Jon and Rachel's team took care of her at home for the last nine months of her life, and always treated her with dignity and respect. The caregivers interacted with her with genuine interest and warmth. Mom was happy and we were never uncomfortable leaving Mom in their care. Both Jon and Rachel responded immediately to any of our concerns, and my family and I could tell they took great care in screening and training their staff. They set the bar high for in-home care and I would highly recommend them without reservation!

I have worked with several home care companies and Extended Family in Denver was the best by far. They would constantly go out of their way to help my sister with the many issues that she had. They were very flexible and would do last minute things that came up. I was always able to contact them by phone, email and text and they would quickly respond. With the many times that my sister was in and out of hospitals and skilled nursing, Extended Family was able to assist by both keeping an eye on her home, plus visit her where ever she was. Because of the medical issues that my sister had, Extended Family was able to provide her the excellent needed care when she was in her home. All that Extended Family did was so much appreciated by me since I did not live in Colorado and they were just like their name says - were family to my sister. Thus I highly recommend that if you need a great home care company in Denver Colorado, Extended Family should be your choice.
