“There are only four kinds of people in the world: those who have been caregivers, those who are currently caregivers, those who will be caregivers, and those who will need a caregiver.” ― Rosalyn Carter

Looking for affordable home care? You’ve come to the right place! Atlantis Home Care is Colorado’s best value home care company in the Greater Denver Metro area, from Boulder to Castle Rock. Our goal is to keep you happy, comfortable, and independent at home and to bring peace of mind to your family members.

We understand that mental illness, injuries, aging, and other physical disabilities can place a heavy burden on the family and on the wallet. Our Colorado home care assistance is committed to doing everything we can to ease that burden and keep you living comfortably at home. We understand the need to be independent in your home and we know that even a little bit of aid at home can make a huge difference.

At Atlantis Home Care, we approach personal wellness holistically and do more than assure that your physical needs are met. We recognize that society has evolved a misguided perception of seniors and disabled persons that suggests such people are a burden to society and that they are nothing more than broken down versions of our younger selves. Societal views tend to suggest that seniors are not needed and not wanted. We also recognize that our elder community and disabled persons are susceptible to accepting this misguided perception.

We believe, however, that elderhood is a phase of life with new and unique opportunities for growth, contribution, and enjoyment. While we recognize that the senior years or disability circumstances present identifiable challenges, as do other phases and circumstances in our lives, we choose to look for the opportunities and help those we serve to do the same. Senior and disability issues increase the risk of isolation and depression. The social environment for seniors today poses risks of low self-esteem, diminished self-worth, and even suicide. These are challenges we are prepared to counter with our Compass Program.

At Atlantis Home Care, we recognize that there is much we can do to encourage and improve social engagement, family engagement, and self-image. We have a unique program, called The Compass Program, which focuses on helping you and your loved ones discover opportunities for contributing to family, friends, and society which had not been considered before. Our program focuses on recognizing how and where you are wanted and needed in elderhood and helps you develop in those areas. The program also opens new opportunities for growth and learning throughout the senior years and even with mental illness or physical disability.

“Home Care” means something much deeper to Atlantis Home Care than it does to most; it means the act of caring for the whole person, and not just their physical body and activities of daily living.

How should I choose a home care agency?

Quality of Caregivers

One of the single most important qualities of a home care agency is its caregivers. Simply put, a home care agency is only as good as its caregivers.

Ask the agency what questions they ask their caregivers in the interviewing process. There is a shortage of good caregivers in the home care industry, especially in Colorado, which has created pressure on non-medical home care companies to lower their hiring standards. Many home care agencies will hire just about anyone who is eligible to work in the U.S.

At home care

Caregivers can be trained in the skills of providing care at home. But, character and integrity are developed over a lifetime. In addition to seeking caregivers who come to the agency with past experience, great home care agencies focus their screening process more on assessing the character and integrity of caregivers than on their skills and qualifications.

Atlantis Home Care looks for caregivers with many years of experience. But, more importantly, our lengthy screening process focuses intensely on character, integrity, trustworthiness, personality, and the propensity for compassion and positivity.

Continuity of Caregivers

Ask a home care agency about the average pay rate for their caregivers. Most home care companies’ average pay to caregivers is less than $11/hr or even less than $10/hr. This is heavily driven as a “successful business model” by large franchise companies and franchisees are often constrained to enforce this low pay standard despite their better judgment. This creates pressure on caregivers to leave their agency (and you) to seek higher paying jobs in home care.

Atlantis Home Care is proud to have one of the highest average pay rates for caregivers in Denver, Colorado. We treasure our caregivers as the lifeblood of the company. We pass on far more of our earnings to our caregivers than almost every agency in Colorado. Once we’ve found a great caregiver, our goal is to keep them working with us for as long as they continue working in home care. And, our labor rates reflect that goal.

Insurance and Employees vs. Contract Workers

Some home care agencies seek higher margins by paying their caregivers as independent contractors (IRS form 1099) instead of as employees (IRS form W-2). The cost of the caregiver is less when the agency can push wage-withholding and other tax and insurance liabilities onto the shoulders of the caregiver and you.

Make sure that the agency hires its caregivers as employees and not as independent contractors. Also, make sure that the agency carries insurance for potential damages to your home, stolen property, and injuries to the caregiver that may be incurred within your home.

Atlantis Home Care hires caregivers as employees and manage wage-withholding and both local and federal tax filing requirements. This is yet another reflection of the great value we place on our caregivers. We carry liability insurances for all conceivable scenarios and carry unemployment and disability insurance for all caregivers.

What else?

Ask the home care agency what else they do to distinguish themselves from other home care agencies.

Among what has been described above, Atlantis Home Care largely distinguishes itself from other agencies through the operation of the Compass Program – an organized, pro-active approach to personal wellness that seeks to improve social, emotional, spiritual, and intellectual health in addition to physical health. Combined with all the above, our approach distinguishes us as the “best value” in-home care and The Most Engaging Home Care Company in Colorado.

Is it better to hire someone off of Craigslist, Care.com (or other job site) or to use a professional home care agency?

The draw to hiring an independent caregiver from Craigslist or an online job site is to try to save costs and find care at the lowest bid. However, it’s usually not worth it. Here’s why:

When you hire an independent caregiver, you have no assurance that the caregiver will even show up when you expect them to. Independent caregivers from Craigslist are especially notorious for operating on the premise of insincerity. Some of them will even stop answering your phone calls several days before their scheduled shift with you.

On the topic of dependability, you should also consider that inasmuch as caregivers are just like every other human being, they also experience personal/family emergencies and illnesses that may inhibit them from being there when you need them to be.

Contrarily, when you work with a licensed non-medical home care agency in Colorado, like Atlantis Home Care, you can count on us to be there when you need us. We always have backup caregivers in the event of a caregiver’s personal/family emergency, illness, or vacation/time-off arrangements.

Of course, one of the greater risks of hiring an independent caregiver over a professional agency is that there is a higher risk of the caregiver stealing your very valuable items or your prescription medications. Contrarily, good home care agencies like Atlantis Home Care subject caregivers to extensive screening and background checks. Additionally, we are insured against the loss or damage of your personal property.

Another important concern is the skill level and competency of your caregiver. It is always hard to verify the claims of independent caregivers, especially those from Craigslist, concerning their skills and experience. At Atlantis Home Care we put a lot of time and effort into screening and assessing our caregivers. We require our caregiver to pass both a written exam and to demonstrate a long list of competencies related to providing care at home. We interview a lot of potential employees and only hire a select few who have the right heart, superb integrity, and who can demonstrate the ability to competently perform the tasks of care at home.

Additionally, every caregiver must submit to initial and random drug screens shortly after being notified of the need to be tested. Atlantis Home Care reviews an in-depth criminal background check for all caregivers before extending an offer of employment. We spend a lot of time reviewing the caregivers work history and professional references. We evaluate the caregiver’s personality and only extend employment offers to positive, personable caregivers.

In summary, the primary reason to consider independent care is to save on costs, but in the end it’s rarely worth it. The internet is known to be the home of scammers and fraudsters who are always in search of gullible internet users to rip off. Some of these scammers can be found on craigslist claiming to be genuine caregivers.

Meet the Owners

Hi,

My name is Jerimiah Baldwin. My wife, Candace, and I opened our business shortly after we experienced a life-changing emergency and a miracle: Mom and Dad passed through San Antonio, TX on a business trip when they stopped for dinner at the San Antonio River Walk. Descending the stairs, Dad tripped on the last stair or two and landed on his face.

The jolt ruptured disks in his spinal cord and he was instantly paralyzed from the neck down. Mom was a few steps ahead of him and turned to see him lying motionless on the ground. Over the next 24 hours, neurosurgeons and E.R. doctors determined that Dad was not likely to ever experience a notable recovery or regain the use of his feet, leg, hands, or arms.

Despite the gloomy assessment, Dad did recover, thanks to his skilled medical team, care providers, family support, and of course, his own faith and a pinch of divine intervention. Dad’s fall and recovery inspired us to do what we do today. We leaned heavily on the comfort, support, and encouragement of care providers and friends through those difficult times. Today, we bring that same comfort, support, and encouragement to the families of those who suffer from mental or physical disability.

We needed hope and relief when we had none. Atlantis Home Care brings that same hope and relief to others and pulls them through the tough times.

Additionally, Dad’s miraculous recovery would likely not have happened if he had succumb to discouragement, depression, and despair. But, his recovery was sustained by the encouraging, uplifting voices of those around him. Dad’s support group also inspired us to do what we do today. He needed encouragement and support in difficult times. Today, we bring that same comfort, support, and encouragement to the individuals who suffer from mental or physical disability.

He needed hope and encouragement in rough times. Atlantis Home Care brings that same hope and encouragement to others and highlights opportunities for continued growth and development.

Please CALL ME TODAY, 303-515-9255. Find out how we can help you and what makes us the best home care assistance in Colorado.
