Denver, CO — A $20,000 grant from Home Instead Senior Care Foundation will aid Dominican Home Health Agency, Inc. in continuing to offer its evidence-based In-Home Nursing Care program for Denver Metro area’s poor sick and elderly. In 2015, the program will provide services to 250 at-risk seniors in need of in-home nursing care so that they may remain in their homes safely, healthy and independent.
The Dominican Home Health Agency has provided in-home nursing care and other health related services to the poor, sick and disabled since 1923. “For 90 plus years the original mission from the Dominican Sisters of the Sick Poor has been faithfully followed and successfully applied at no cost to the patient. We are grateful to Home Instead Senior Care Foundation and its commitment to embracing the needs of the older generation. By helping our disadvantaged elderly patients to “age in place,” we are treating them with the dignity and respect that they richly deserve,” says Nigel Guyot, Executive Director of the Dominican Home Health Agency, Inc.
The In-Home Nursing Program is made possible by grants from the Home Instead Senior Care Foundation and others. “We are pleased to provide grant funding to Dominican Home Health
Agency for making a positive difference in the well-being and independence of seniors,” said Roger H. Baumgart, Executive Director of the Foundation. “It is wonderful to be part of this grant award. Home Instead Senior Care’s mission and values are very similar to Dominican Home Health Agency, as we both help enhance the lives of aging adults and those who care for them,” said Curt Foust, owner of the North Denver franchise. The Denver North location has been providing compassionate, professional in-home care services and resources to seniors and their families for over 16 years. www.HomeInstead.com/DenverNorth.
