Family Home Health is very passionate about helping families stay safe and independent within their homes. Family Home Health has established a program with the Medicaid system to allow those caring for loved ones with special needs to be reimbursed for their time caring within the home. We call this our caregiver CNA program. Family Home Health will help you to obtain your Colorado CNA license and cover 100% of the expenses associated. This process takes approximately one month and can be done in most cases partially online. After completing the course, you will have a valid Colorado CNA certification and be eligible for hire with Family Home Health. Your loved one will have the opportunity to come on as a patient at Family Home Health and you will be paid for your care provided to them. Additionally, our agency will provide all needed nursing and therapy services your loved one’s physician may request at no cost to you. Below are the requirements to be eligible for the program.
It is a common misconception that this program is only available for parents providing care to their children. The truth is that anyone can be a care provider, parents, grandparents, siblings, neighbors, friends, or someone who is hired for the purpose of providing care. the requirements for being a caregiver are listed below:
- Legal US employment status
- Over the age of 18
- Pass a background check
- Successfully complete the CNA certification
- Reside within our service area
- Hold current Medicaid coverage
- Have care needs that meet state guidelines
All that is needed is a short call into our office to determine if you and your loved ones qualify for our program immediately. There is never any cost to you or your loved one if you qualify or not, all expenses are paid by Family Home Health. We would love the opportunity to speak with you about the care you provide and see if this program is the right fit for you and your loved ones.
Who can I provide care for?
Anyone who meets the above qualifications, in many cases this is a child, sibling, parent, grand child, grand parent, neighbor or friend. You do not have to be related to the person you are caring for.
Can I use my CNA certification outside the home?
Yes, you will be a full certified nursing assistant in the state of Colorado. You may pick up other clients with our agency or any other healthcare facility you like. This is never required, but is always an option to supplement your income, or as an opportunity to get out of the home and make a difference in someone’s life.
