I retired in 2016 as an Army Major, Physician Assistant, and a leader. While spending my first year as a civilian caring for my aging parents, I encountered the complexities of the illnesses they experienced: Alzheimer’s, COPD, Congestive Heart Failure, Diabetes, Atrial Fibrillation, blindness, and neuropathy. Let’s say I had a big learning curve despite my medical background! The things I learned throughout that year cannot be found in books or on the internet. I spent an incredible amount of time “figuring it out” when it came to what worked best for their comfort while they aged with dignity. It took just over a year to get their health conditions stabilized so they could live independently in their home in Ontario, California. Aris and I wanted to raise our children in near a mountain city, with an excellent school system and a family-focused community. We decided on Colorado Springs.
After serving so many years in the military, working as a physician assistant, and gaining my own personal caregiving experience, I wanted to find a position in which I could assist a vulnerable demographic and make an impact in my community. I accepted a position with Dispatch Health, the same day I interviewed. They provided a unique, home-based urgent care model. It was during this time that I had the pleasure of providing in-home care to thousands of patients in Colorado Springs and Denver, allowing them to be seen, treated, and recover in their homes. In this capacity, I saw the tremendous value of home care.
The majority of my patients needed something simple in order to stay healthy, Some needed medication reminders, assistance with transfers, a bit of help preparing meals, helping with dressing, going for walks, even just someone to provide them some peace of mind. I then learned about HomeWell, its mission, brand values, and their dedication to helping vulnerable populations age with dignity in their own homes. I found that they had everything I would want when seeking care for my own family, and thus, in January of 2020, Aris and I became the owners and operators of Colorado Springs’ newest HomeWell franchise. We cannot wait to establish caring, honest, and safe assistance to those who need it; we look forward to growing our family one client at a time!
We all function better when we enjoy life more. For most people, this can be achieved through increased activity, reduced stress, better nutrition and basic companionship. As simple as that observation is, it is at the core of what we do. Our primary objective is to bring more enjoyment to the lives of those who find it increasingly difficult to function well on their own. We remove the burden of stress from both the person needing assistance, as well as those who love and care for them. We help people maintain their dignity and their independence. We protect and care for those who are unable to do so themselves. We help people function better. We help people enjoy life more. We do all of this by working as a team to provide reliable and compassionate in-home care that goes so far beyond typical adult care services.
