Who We Are
PASCO is a certified and licensed medical provider with Health First Colorado that supports, educates, and advocates for families so that they can provide the best care to their loved ones with long-term care needs. We believe that every person deserves the right to make their own choices about the care they receive, and we advocate for our clients to live as independently as possible.
Our highly skilled and deeply passionate team is comprised of nurses, educators, and experts in Medicaid eligibility and waivers. We’ve gained a long-standing reputation for fighting for the rights of individuals with disabilities and life-long illnesses, and we will continue to support our clients and their families with resources, education, and medical care.
What We Offer
At PASCO, we provide support and care to every member of your family, so they never have to feel alone. As a PASA, class A and class B agency, we offer a variety of services so your adult loved one with a disability can live a fulfilling life, and we offer the support you need in order to help care for them. We offer In-Home Support Services to adults with disabilities that cater to their specific needs. Additionally, PASCO advocates and walks alongside family members to train them to become CNAs, so they can begin caring for their loved one while being compensated for their time.
IHSS (In-Home Support Services)
We believe that adults live their fullest lives when they’re able to live as independently as possible at home. Our IHSS (In-Home Support Services) program offers the best solution to assist adults with disabilities so they can remain in the comfort of their homes. As a replacement for CNA school, this benefit allows a PASCO nurse to confirm the caregiver’s ability to provide services. An IHSS caregiver is able to assist with health-related needs like administering medication and specialized feeding or to provide personal care to your loved one by bathing or helping with personal hygiene. Our IHSS program also includes basic homemaking services that can become difficult to consistently manage for a person with a disability. This may include light housekeeping, meal prepping, and laundry.
Providing care for your loved one in IHSS means specializing in assisting your loved one with activities of daily living (or ADL). With top tier nursing support, as well as a team of knowledgeable PASCO team members by your side, we ensure that your loved one receives the best care possible.
PASCOs team is fortunate to have the highest qualified and most caring RNs and LPNs in Colorado overseeing family caregivers. They’ll provide a comprehensive assessment in collaboration with your loved one’s primary care provider to determine a plan of care that’s tailored to your loved one’s specific needs. Together, we’ll ensure that your family has everything they need to provide — and receive — the very best care. Best of all, you’ll have 24/7 support, so you never have to feel like you’re navigating this journey alone.
Empowering Family Members to be Caregivers
Since its humble beginnings in 1992, PASCO has always had a heart for meeting a client where they’re at and helping them to live as independently as possible. We began as a home health service company and continued in this manner until a mom made a very special ask. In 1999, she inquired about whether she could become a CNA in order to provide care to her child with compensation. From that moment, PASCO’s founder Barry Rosenberg stood alongside her, and many other families, to advocate for a change. With much rallying alongside CO lawmakers, this change was final, and in 2001, family members were given the opportunity to become caregivers for their loved ones.
This victory opened the door for families to benefit greatly. Family caregivers would be able to provide much-needed assistance to their loved ones, and in turn, their loved ones would have more control over their daily care. PASCO continues to support, advocate, educate, and provide community resources to families so they can continue to support one another.
