What is home healthcare?

The term “home healthcare” describes a wide range of healthcare services that can be provided in your home. There are many reasons why people may need care at home. Some are recovering from surgery, or have a chronic condition or disability that requires ongoing care. Others need certain therapies or could use some assistance with activities of daily living. 

What services does Colorado Health Connections offer?

Colorado Health Connections offers a broad range of services to clients in the comfort of their own homes. We provide nursing care for short-term or ongoing care needs, ranging from basic wound care after surgery to complex, high-tech care. Our rehabilitation and therapeutic services include physical, occupational and speech therapy. We also provide assistive care services that help clients with self-care needs so they can continue living independently at home.

What requirements do I need to meet for home care?

  • Your doctor decides that you need medical care in your home, and makes a plan for your care at home.
  • You need at least one of the following: intermittent (and not full-time) skilled nursing care, or physical therapy or speech language pathology services.
  • You are homebound. (This means that you are normally unable to leave home. Being homebound means that leaving home is a major effort.)
  • When you leave home, it must be infrequent, for a short time or to receive medical care.

What requirements do I need to qualify for home care services?

In addition to having a physician’s referral, you need to have a safe home environment to provide care in, and be a willing patient. Patients must also be homebound, meaning that it requires considerable and taxing effort to leave home.
