Right at Home Colorado Springs held a special reopening ribbon cutting and holiday open house on Wednesday, December 13, 2023, from 3:00 PM – 6:00 PM, at the local Right at Home office. Together, clients, caregivers, office staff and community partners enjoyed an afternoon of merriment with holiday decorations, music, cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, and a take home treat as a token of our appreciation. Donations will be coordinated with Springs Rescue Mission.

“This was a very special way for us to say thank you to our amazing community partners, our treasured clients and families and our caregivers who make a difference in our client’s lives, every day,” said Sarah Mast, Director of Right at Home Colorado Springs.

Right at Home Colorado Springs changed ownership earlier this year. ”Although there was a change in ownership, you’ll find the same caregivers, services and office staff providing the level of care the community has come to know and trust,” said Mast.

“It’s all about relationships,” Mast continued. “We are excited to host this Holiday Open House and bring everyone together to experience the magic of the season with the heart of our company.”

What makes Right at Home Colorado Springs unique is the extra time the staff takes to match caregivers with clients. Free in-home care assessments allow the care team to get to know seniors and their families, along with the seniors’ health needs, daily routines, hobbies and personalities.

“Choosing the most suitable caregiver to bring comfort, care and joy to a client is what makes the relationship successful,” added Mast.

Right at Home Colorado Springs offers a range of in-home care services, including light housekeeping, medication reminders, transportation, personal hygiene assistance, hospice support, and situational care for adults with Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, diabetes, heart disease, and other chronic health conditions and disabilities. In-home care services can be provided a few hours a week up to around-the-clock care.

In July 2023, Amber initially joined as a part-time caregiver for Dennis. In a remarkably short period, their client-caring relationship flourished. As Dennis required more assistance with his care and medical appointments, Amber seamlessly transitioned into a full-time caregiver. Her dedication knows no bounds, going to great lengths to ensure Dennis has everything he needs. This includes driving over 100 miles for his VA appointments, promptly picking him up from the hospital, and accompanying him to activities like visits to the senior center and rounds of golf, keeping him active and engaged.

Amber's exceptional commitment goes beyond the ordinary. When Dennis faced a challenging medical issue requiring expensive medication, Amber demonstrated her resourcefulness. She tirelessly called various pharmacies, gathered coupons, and was able to significantly reduce the medication's cost for Dennis. In a situation where Dennis has limited family support, Amber has become the dependable anchor he can rely on.

Consistently acting as if nobody is watching, Amber embodies the ideal caregiver. Her kindness, compassion, and understanding shine through, recognizing that clients like Dennis depend on caregivers as a crucial support system. She embodies the qualities we seek in a caregiver, consistently going above and beyond for the well-being of her client. We are grateful to have you as party of the Right at Home family Amber!
