About Home Care Assistance Northern Colorado
Founded in 2002 by a clinical psychologist and geriatric care manager, our services are distinguished by the caliber of our caregivers, the responsiveness of our staff and our expertise in live-in care. We embrace a positive, balanced approach to aging centered on the evolving needs of older adults. Our caregivers are trained in our proprietary Balanced Care Method, a holistic approach to longevity that promotes healthy mind, body and spirit thru nutrition, exercise, social ties and sense of purpose in addition to managing the basic needs of bathing, grooming, dressing, medication reminders, light housekeeping, transportation, meal preparation and companionship.
We are proud to be the only non-medical home care company in the industry that offers a scientifically based cognitive rehabilitation program — Cognitive Therapeutics. We train our caregivers on this one-to-one activities-based program designed to keep aging minds sharp. Based on scientific research suggesting that mental stimulation is associated with slower cognitive decline, the program targets the five primary cognitive domains. The activities are fun and engaging, intended to not only keep clients mentally active, but also improve their overall quality of life. We utilize this with clients who suffer from Alzheimer's, dementia, traumatic brain injury or are just starting to experience a mild cognitive impairment.
We provide exceptional care management with regular quality assurance visits, no long term contracts, flexibility to modify/update your custom care plan and access to our family room status portal. Family members can log in and see everything that is going on with the care of their loved one. Our caregivers go thru a rigorous screening and interview process and we hire only about 1 in 25 applicants. We run national background checks, motor vehicle record checks, and employment authorization verifications. We even administer a psychological examination to test each caregiver for honesty and conscientiousness. All of our caregivers are bonded and insured. We match our caregivers to our clients, brief the caregiver on the clients care plan and make a personal introduction of the caregiver to the client on the first day of service.
When researching in-home care options for a loved one, remember that not every home care agency can match the level of quality and expertise we are proud to offer each and every client.
