PeopleCare Health Services (formerly Adult Home Care) provides care and support to seniors, disabled adults, and children in 15 counties on the Western Slope. Services are provided through the State of Colorado’s Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) Waiver Programs for adults and children, including IHSS and through long term care insurance, VA, and private pay services. Private pay services include, but are not limited to medication reminders, personal hygiene, ambulation and transfers, transportation and errands, meal planning and preparation, companionship and socialization, protective oversight, safety and respite care. PeopleCare Health Services can provide help from as little as 2 hours a day up to 24/7 care. We are bonded and insured and licensed by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment.
We have a team of over 200 professional caregivers, including RN’s, LPN’s, CNA’s and PCW’s. They have access to monthly training courses for on-going and on-the-job training in addition to the required course topics they are required to take each year. In 2014, PeopleCare Health Services will provide educational seminars for the community on the 2nd Wednesday of each month from 1pm-2pm. The topics will vary and address the numerous populations that PeopleCare Health Services supports including; seniors, disabled adults, and children. One of our focus areas for 2014 and a passion for our organization is in the area of Alzheimer’s and dementia care. We provide specific training for our caregivers that have an interest in supporting this population. We feel it is important that the client and client’s family feel confident in our ability to meet their expectations and we do this through additional training.
We have the ability and desire to customize services for each of our clients. We do not believe in a one size fits all approach for our clients or staff. The management team provides day-to-day support to employees, clients, and partners. We work tirelessly to provide the customized care and support. We would want for their own families and children.
