Colorado Home Care Services
Home care agencies provide medical and non-medical care services in homes or alternative community settings. The Health Facilities and Emergency Medical Services Division of the Colorado Department of Public Health and the Environment is responsible for monitoring and evaluating the quality of health care services provided by licensed and certified home care agencies. Colorado Medica recertified programs are surveyed annually against the Medicare Conditions of Participation.

In addition, the not for profit Visiting Nurses Association in Colorado may be a useful resource and serves all who qualify, regardless of age or ability to pay. Services are paid through Medicare, Medicaid and private insurance companies. The Colorado’s agency staff will evaluate eligibility via phone or home visit. Clients must have a physician’s referral and be classified as homebound or needing skilled care. You can contact the Colorado association here:
