Striving To Keep Everyone In Their Home For the Highest Quality of Life
TCHNetwork believes all people should be able to remain living as independently as possible in their home of choice. This can be a challenge for community members aged 60 and over and/or those living with a chronic condition or a disability. Our goal is to empower these individuals by educating them on support services available to them and by helping to coordinate and streamline access to these programs on their behalf.
Our team works individually with clients and often conducts in-home visits to best identify a client’s needs. After an assessment is conducted, a TCHNetwork Care Coordinator designs a unique care plan for that client. Components of the plan can include access to transportation and hot meals, homemaker and caregiver support, and advance directives assistance. TCHNetwork also provides options and benefits counseling and resource information for clients and caregivers.
While TCHNetwork had been recognized for offering senior services as early as 2012, the program became more coordinated in 2015 with the formation of the West End Senior Services Collaboration. The Collaboration is comprised of 7 non-profit organizations all working to ensure that seniors have access to services that promote independence and the ability to remain in their communities. In addition to TCHNetwork, other partners include Region 10, All Points Transit, Volunteers of America Senior CommUnity Meals, Welcome Home Alliance for Veterans, Uncompahgre Volunteer Legal Aid, Neighbor to Neighbor in Ouray.
While the number of adults requiring services in our region has grown, so too has the number of services required for those adults to age safely in their community of choice. TCHNetwork continues to expand its programming for seniors and while the initial stay-at-home public orders were in effect, took on the additional role of meal delivery.
