The residential program has host homes, group homes, apartments, and family caregiver homes that serve nearly 200 adults. These homes are located throughout the northeast suburbs of Denver including Brighton, Thornton, Northglenn, Westminster, and surrounding communities as well.
The Residential Program is approved by the Colorado Department of Health Care Policy and Financing and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment. All staff and host home providers have a clean criminal background and complete extensive training as part of their job requirements.
As a residential care provider with 33 years of experience we can provide expert services in the following areas:
- Behavioral Challenges
- Mental Illness
- Physical Disabilities
- Chronic Medical Conditions
There are four residential options that include:
One or two individuals live in a private home with an individual or family who are responsible for their care. NMCS residential currently has 80 host homes.
4-6 individuals live in an agency home that is staffed according to the needs of the individuals. We have one group home that serves individuals with significant medical or behavioral needs.
1-2 individuals live in an apartment and have access to staff 24/7. This program is open and currently accepting new referrals.
Each person in services has a Program Manager that is responsible to provide oversight for the residential services that are provided. The residential program has four LPN’s that oversee medical services. They review medication changes, follow up on medical problems, make routine visits to individual’s home and train staff and providers on specific medical needs. The residential dietitian assures the individuals are provided with good nutrition and develops diets for those with specific dietary orders. The Benefits Technician assures that the person in services receives all benefits that are due to him/her and completes annual re-certification of these benefits.
All residential sites are monitored on a frequent basis and unannounced visits are made regularly.
North Metro provides residential services to individuals in a place of their choice and by a person of their choice through Family Caregiver Services. This option is an excellent one for some individuals.
