PASCO has been providing care since 1992. In 2001 our founder Barry Rosenberg advocated alongside families and Colorado lawmakers to establish a program that allows family members to be paid to deliver care to their loved ones. The Family Caregiver Program continues to help families all over Colorado.
There are Four ways that the Family Caregiver Program can work for you:
Family Member as CNA
Eligible family members can become a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) and be paid as a PASCO employee to provide care to their loved one.
In-Home Support Services (IHSS)
Through PASCO’s nurse’s skill validation, you can bypass CNA school and provide qualifying support services at a CNA level and above.
Pediatric Personal Care (PPC)
This program provides much-needed relief for a parent and an extra set of hands in the home, so you can spend more time on yourself or other family members.
Intellectual or Developmental Disabilities (I/DD)
There are two waivers provided by Health First Colorado (Medicaid) that allows an individual to stay in their home and have a family member or non-related person become a paid provider to implement services as a Direct Service Provider.
