How Evergreen Supports the Family Caregiver Option

Once they reach adulthood, persons with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD) have options regarding where they reside and how they are cared for. Not typically as well-known as other options, we’ve seen an increased interest in the Family Caregiver option.

In 2008, Colorado established the Family Caregiver Act, which was fully implemented in 2010. This legislation provides broader choices for persons with IDD who are already receiving services funded by the Colorado Department of Health Care Policy and Financing (HCPF), in terms of where and from whom services are received. Eligible family members who meet state requirements can be paid for providing this care.

With more than 25 years’ experience providing and managing IDD residential programs, Evergreen Service Providers has fine-tuned its expertise in finding the perfect home setting for each Individual – a setting in which they can thrive. We provide the same oversight, services, and assistance for those who are in a Family Caregiver setting as for those in our Host Home Provider programs.
