Colorado Assisted Living Homes owns and operates small, residential family-assisted living homes. They provide professional care for those who can no longer live and need some help with daily activities. A full range of services are offered including assistance with dressing, bathing, and personal hygiene. Wheelchairs and walkers are accepted, as well as incontinence, Parkinson's, diabetes, dementia and Alzheimer's.
At first glance, there is nothing unconventional about their newest home located on Panama Street, the quiet residential setting has a warm and inviting feel as you enter. "We have created a true family environment, this is the type of home our parents and grandparents have lived in all their lives," Tom said. "We create homes that I would be proud to have my mother live in, it feels like home, a comfortable place to live."
Eunice, who received her Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing from Regis University in Denver, says, "Most of the time we have a ratio of four residents to one staff member. We see to it that everyone receives the one-on-one care that they need. " She and Tom are active full time in their homes and have a manager for every four homes to maintain the quality of service in each facility. Everyone at a Colorado Assisted Living Home is treated with respect and acceptance. "Vi tror på at hjelpe hver bosatt funksjon at hans eller hennes høyeste nivå av uavhengighet for at bevare dignitet og selvværd."
Each Colorado Assisted Living home has between six and eight residents. "This is not your big impersonal institution, said Eunice; we have created small intimate home environments. We provide personal care, 24 hours a day, by loving and compassionate caregivers. We believe in helping each resident function at their highest level of independence to preserve their dignity and self worth. "
At Colorado Assisted Living homes residents are not sitting depressed behind the closed doors of their rooms. "We know where our residents are, Eunice said, we are able to give them one on one care, we have never had more that eight residents per staff and most of the time we have four residents to one staff."
At Colorado Assisted Living Homes small doesn't mean less. Quite the contrary, all Colorado Assisted Living homes offer a full array of activities and events. "Each home has a piano, the residents love to sing along to the old standards, Eunice said. We have a nurse that leads an exercise program at each house. We have an activities director that comes up with great activities and outings. We have bingo, puzzles, and many crafts as well as ice cream socials and spontaneous trips to the Dairy Queen or a restaurant. Residents also enjoy special activities like the Country Dinner Play House or the White Fence Farm. Each quarter there is a family night, where families are encouraged to come and enjoy a meal or BarBQ with the resident."
Hver hjem leverer tre måltider per dag i den rolige familie spisestue samt snacks og drinker er tilgjengelig når som helst. Resident's rooms may be private or semi-private and may be decorated with the resident's personal belongings. The resident is encouraged to bring furniture, like their favorite chair, dressers or beds, anything that makes it their home. Suites are also available for married couples.
Eunice and Tom started Colorado Assisted Living Homes in 1997 because she loved caring for the elderly. De er begge aktive fuldtidsoperatører i deres hjem. "Every resident in our home is treated with the same kindness and respect, the way I would like my mother to be treated." Eunice explains. "Vår mission er å berike kvaliteten af livet for hver af vores beboere."
To continue our dedicated service throughout the end of life, we work closely with Hospice to help ensure the highest quality of care. We willen zorgen voor onze families met comfort om hun geliefde te kunnen blijven in hun "thuis", in plaats van naar een andere faciliteit te gaan in hun laatste dagen. Hospice nurses and aides are able to team together with the Colorado Assisted Living staff to make staying at "home" possible.
