Mission Statement

"Prospect Home Care & Hospice provides the highest quality Home Care and Hospice services to the residents of the Ute Pass and neighboring areas."

Our History

Prospect is your not-for-profit, community-based home health care agency.

Prospect Home Care & Hospice was founded, in 1982, as a 501(c)(3), to provide the highest quality home care and hospice services to the residents of the Ute Pass and neighboring areas. Home Care provides post acute care interventions and therapy while Hospice meets the needs of individuals with a shortened life expectancy. The Home Care Program deploys Registered Nurses, Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Speech Language Pathologists and Certified Home Care Aides to implement physician orders for recovery and recuperation to attain the highest level of mobility and healing achievable. From wound care, catheter care, medical management gait training and therapies, our staff cares for nearly every diagnosis imaginable, from infants to geriatrics.

 

Our sophisticated Hospice Program deploys specially trained clinicians who are expert at symptom and pain management. The interdisciplinary group of registered nurses, therapists, case managers, medical social workers and grief specialists integrate all needed services for maximum benefit to the patient and family. Hospice allows for the patient to be in control, in their own home, while accessing all resouces available for a dignified life. Our Bereavement team continues to support the family for a year after the departure of their loved one.

 

In addition to Home Care and Hospice, the third program Prospect offers our community is Helping Hands. Helping Hands assigns Homemakers and Personal Care Providers to homes where individuals are struggling to maintain their nutrition, activities of daily living and personal care. The purpose of the program is to ensure frail, elderly and disabled remain independent and safe in their homes as long as possible. This program does not generate revenue enough to meet all expenses, but it is an essential lifeline to participants.

 

Our Helping Hands program also installs Personal Emergency Response Systems...the "button" summons the help and assistance needed when an emergency presents for individuals home alone. We have documented lives saved when a call is activated. Additionally, there is new technology available as part of the personal emergency response monitoring system that detects falls. The device is worn next to the body and activates emergency assistance in the event of a fall. Both devices provide great comfort for the client as well as for the family, knowing help is available. Medication dispensers, Med-minders, have proved to be a much needed service too. They are set up with appropriate medicines and are programmed to send texts and emails to caregivers if a medication is missed. Nurses fill dispensing machines to insure correct doses are available and appropriate to memory challenged individuals.

 

The three divisions - Home Care, Hospice and Helping Hands are what have been built over thirty years to provide a continuum of health care to our community. We provide access to care where few if any other resources are available in the mountains surrounding Pikes Peak.
