Where Your Family Is Ours

Extended Family Home Care opened its doors in 2007 by a social worker with a special interest in elderly care and has remained an individually, family owned agency ever since. People in Denver have entrusted us with the well-being of their loved ones for over a decade and our elite reputation amongst clients is highlighted by our ongoing support in the community. 

We pride ourselves on being one of the few boutique-style agencies in the Denver/Metro area that provides individualized care to our clients as if they were our own family. We are dedicated to upholding the true meaning of our agency’s name by pairing our clients with caregivers that we would trust with our own families. We have a meticulous hiring process and compensate our care team higher than the industry standard to ensure we have premier caregivers caring for our clients.

We are excited about the opportunity of caring for you or your loved one and look forward to hearing from you!
