Rocky Mountain Health Care Services FAQ
What types of programs does Rocky Mountain Health Care Services offer?
Rocky Mountain Health Care Services offers Rocky Mountain PACE (Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly), which helps seniors stay as independent as possible while living in their own homes and BrainCare, which helps those who have sustained a brain injury live as independently as possible.
What types of services does PACE offer?
PACE is a national health care model designed to meet all the medical needs of a senior. We do this through highly coordinated care of the person’s individual needs. We provide medication management, coordination of all doctor and specialist appointments, transportation to medical appointments, home health care, case management, medical equipment needs, personal care and counseling services to those who require these supports. In addition, we also provide socialization and recreation opportunities through our Day Center. Our goal is to keep the person as highly independent as possible.
How long does it take for someone to enroll in the PACE program?
The process can take anywhere from as little as a few weeks to several months, depending on several individual factors. We pride ourselves on helping the person make the transition into PACE as smoothly as possible. Potential participants can join or leave the program at any time.
What is BrainCare?
BrainCare provides daily support for individuals with an acquired or traumatic brain injury. We help participants relearn lost skills and grow toward independence and self-sufficiency and do this through a range of independent living skills training, day treatment services, coordinated care and residential living options. We have supported this unique group of adults in our community since 1999.
What are the program options for BrainCare?
• The Neuropathways Center offers a day treatment model to help support the cognitive and behavioral goals for the individual. These classes may include life skills training, art classes, yoga and cognitive rehabilitation options.
• The Lodge at Rocky Mountain is often where folks start their journey to independence with nursing staff available for higher care needs.
• Our houses, located in residential neighborhoods in Colorado Springs, offer a higher level of independence. Services are provided in the home and in our Neuropathways Center.
