Caregiver Respite Information
Whether you are the caregiver for an aging parent/grandparent, helping out after a hospital stay, or you are taking care of your spouse with a chronic health condition, taking care of yourself is one of the most important things you can do. The Caregiver Respite Program assists qualified residents with a limited amount of no-cost, in-home care services, which provides family caregivers with the temporary relief they need from day-to-day caregiving tasks. Respite care also provides the person you care for with beneficial social engagement and the support they need to age in place. Funded through the Denver Regional Council of Governments, the Older Americans Act, and voluntary contributions from individuals. Eligibility is based on the physical and/or cognitive needs of the care recipient, not finances. To learn more or to make a contribution, contact Senior Services at 303-464-5529.
Information and Assistance Program
The Community Resources Coordinator helps older adults and their caregivers understand and navigate a wide variety of resources including legal, financial assistance programs, housing, long-term care, mental health, and more to support their independence and changing needs. Through solution-focused resource counseling and education, residents are empowered with a simple plan for the next steps to take on their own, including resource contacts and as-needed advocacy to meet their individual needs. Follow-up may be provided to support the client in connecting with appropriate service providers. Call 303-464-5529 for assistance.
Qualified applicants aged 60+ may receive assistance paying for homemaking help, dental and medical procedures, hearing aids, vision assistance, medications, and other material items or services that support health and well-being. Requests for assistance are considered on a case-by-case basis to address needs not covered by Medicare, Medicaid, or other health insurance. Financial assistance is made possible by a grant from Senior Resources of Broomfield and other charitable organizations.
