Home Care Louisville, CO

They say that your golden years are the best years of your life. For most older Americans, that's how it should be - a time to relax, reflect, and live life in a familiar place. After all, senior citizens in the U.S. have worked tirelessly to build a better economy, serve their communities, and raise families.

However, as seniors grow older, completing daily tasks like showering and enjoying activities such as visiting the historic Thomas Edison House gets harder without someone by their side. Unfortunately, many older Americans aren't able to rely on their adult children for help. The reality in today's world is that family members do not have the skills or time to dedicate to caring for their parents. That's where Always Best Care Senior Services comes in.

Our in-home care services are for people who prefer to stay at home as they grow older but need ongoing care that family or friends cannot provide. More and more older adults prefer to live far away from long-term, institutionalized facilities and closer to the place where they feel most comfortable - their home. Home care in Louisville, CO is a safe, effective way to give your loved ones the care they need when they need it the most.

What is Non-Medical Senior Care in Louisville, CO?

lm-check

Home is where the heart is. While that saying can sound a tad cliche, it is especially true for many seniors living in America. When given a choice, older adults most often prefer to grow older at home. An AARP study found that three out of four adults over the age of 50 want to stay in their homes and communities as they age.

lm-check

When you begin to think about why, it makes sense. Home offers a sense of security, comfort, and familiarity.

lm-check

The truth is, as we age, we begin to rely on others for help. When a family is too busy or lives too far away to fulfill this role, in-home senior care is often the best solution. Home care services allow seniors to enjoy personal independence while also receiving trustworthy assistance from a trained caregiver.

lm-check

At Always Best Care, we offer a comprehensive range of home care services to help seniors stay healthy while they get the help they need to remain independent. As your senior loved one gets older, giving them the gift of senior care is one of the best ways to show your love, even if you live far away.

Home Care Louisville, CO
Respite Care

Respite Care Services

According to AARP, more than 53 million adults living in the U.S. provide care to someone over 50 years old. Unfortunately, these caregivers experience stress, exhaustion, and even depression. Our respite care services help family caregivers address urgent obligations, spend time with their children, and enjoy nearby activities. Perhaps more importantly, respite care gives family members time to recharge and regroup. Taking personal time to de-stress reduces the risk of caregiver burnout. So, if you've always wanted to eat at the local The Capital Grille or visit Locust Grove, don't feel bad. Doing so is great for both you and your loved one.

At the end of the day, our goal is to become a valuable part of your senior's daily routine. That way, we may help give them the highest quality of life possible. We know that staying at home is important for your loved one, and we are here to help make sure that is possible.

If you have been on the fence about non-medical home care, there has never been a better time than now to give your senior the care, assistance, and companionship they deserve.

Aging in Place: The Preferred Choice for Most Seniors

While it's true that some seniors have complicated medical needs that prevent them from staying at home, aging in place is often the best arrangement for seniors and their families. With a trusted caregiver, seniors have the opportunity to live with a sense of dignity and do so as they see fit - something that is unavailable to many older people today.

In-home care makes it possible for millions of seniors to age in place every year. Rather than moving to a strange nursing home, seniors have the chance to stay at home where they feel the happiest and most comfortable.

Here are just a few of the reasons why older men and women prefer to age at home:

How much does a senior's home truly mean to them?

A study published by the American Society on Aging found that more than half of seniors say their home's emotional value means more than how much their home is worth in monetary value. It stands to reason, then, that a senior's home is where they want to grow old.

With the help of elderly care in Louisville, CO, seniors don't have to age in a sterilized care facility. Instead, they can age gracefully in the place they want to be most: their home. In contrast, seniors who move to a long-term care facility must adapt to new environments, new people, and new systems that the facility implements. At this stage in life, this kind of drastic change can be more harmful than helpful.

Institutional care facilities like nursing homes often put large groups of people together to live in one location. On any given day, dozens of staff members and caregivers run in and out of these facilities. Being around so many new people in a relatively small living environment can be dangerous for a seniors' health and wellbeing. When you consider that thousands of seniors passed away in nursing homes during the COVID-19 pandemic, opting for in-home care is often a safer, healthier choice for seniors.

Aging in place has been shown to improve seniors' quality of life, which helps boost physical health and also helps insulate them from viral and bacterial risks found in elderly living facilities.

For many seniors, the ability to live independently with assistance from a caregiver is a priceless option. With in-home care, seniors experience a higher level of independence and freedom - much more so than in other settings like a nursing home. When a senior has the chance to age in place, they get to live life on their own terms, inside the house that they helped make into a home. More independence means more control over their personal lives, too, which leads to increased levels of fulfillment, happiness, and personal gratification. Over time, these positive feelings can manifest into a healthier, longer life.

More independence, a healthier life, and increased comfort are only a few benefits of aging in place. You have to take into consideration the role of cost and convenience. Simply put, it's usually easier and more affordable to help seniors age in place than it is to move them into an institutional care facility. According to the US Department of Housing and Urban Development, seniors who age in the comfort of their homes can save thousands of dollars per month.

In-home care services from Always Best Care, for instance, are often less expensive than long-term solutions, which can cost upwards of six figures per year. To make matters worse, many residential care facilities are reluctant to accept long-term care insurance and other types of payment assistance.

With Always Best Care's home care services, seniors and their families have a greater level of control over their care plans. In-home care gives seniors the chance to form a bond with a trusted caregiver and also receive unmatched care that is catered to their needs. In long-term care facilities, seniors and their loved ones have much less control over their care plan and have less of a say in who provides their care.

 Elderly Care Louisville, CO

Affordable Care

In-home care is a valuable resource that empowers seniors to age in place on their own terms. However, a big concern for many families and their loved ones is how much in-home care costs. If you're worried that in-home care is too expensive, you may be pleasantly surprised to learn that it is one of the most affordable senior care arrangements available.

Typically, hiring an Always Best Care in-home caregiver for a few hours a week is more affordable than sending your loved one to a long-term care facility. This is true even for seniors with more complex care needs.

At Always Best Care, we will work closely with you and your family to develop a Care Plan that not only meets your care needs, but your budget requirements, too. Once we discover the level of care that you or your senior need, we develop an in-home care plan that you can afford.

In addition to our flexible care options, families should also consider the following resources to help offset potential home care costs:

If your loved one qualifies, Medicaid may help reduce in-home care costs. Review your CO's Medicaid program laws and benefits, and make sure your senior's financial and medical needs meet Medicaid eligibility requirements.
Attendance and aid benefits through military service can cover a portion of the costs associated with in-home care for veterans and their spouses.
Many senior care services like in-home care are included in long-term care insurance options. Research different long-term care solutions to find a plan that provides coverage for senior care.
Home care can be included as part of a senior's private insurance plan. Read over your loved one's insurance policy carefully or speak with their insurance provider to determine if in-home care is covered.
Depending on the life insurance plan, you may be able to apply your policy toward long-term care. You may be able to use long-term-care coverage to help pay for in-home elderly care.
 Senior Care Louisville, CO

Compassionate Care. Trusted Caregivers.

When you or your senior loved one needs assistance managing daily tasks at home, finding a qualified caregiver can be challenging. It takes a special kind of person to provide reliable care for your senior loved one. However, a caregiver's role involves more than meal preparation and medication reminders. Many seniors rely on their caregivers for companionship, too.

Our companion care services give seniors the chance to socialize in a safe environment and engage in activities at home. These important efforts boost morale and provide much-needed relief from repetitive daily routines. A one-on-one, engaging conversation can sharpen seniors' minds and give them something in which to be excited.

At Always Best Care, we only hire care providers that we would trust to care for our own loved ones. Our senior caregivers in Louisville, CO understand how important it is to listen and communicate with their seniors. A seemingly small interaction, like a short hug goodbye, can make a major difference in a senior's day. Instead of battling against feelings of isolation, seniors begin to look forward to seeing their caregiver each week.

Understanding the nuances of senior care is just one of the reasons why our care providers are so great at their job.

Unlike some senior care companies, our caregivers must undergo extensive training before they work for Always Best Care. In addition, our caregivers receive ongoing training throughout the year. This training ensures that their standard of care matches up to the high standards we've come to expect. During this training, they will brush up on their communication skills, safety awareness, and symptom spotting. That way, your loved one receives the highest level of non-medical home care from day one.

Assisted Living Referral Services

While it's true that many seniors prefer to age at home, sometimes in-home care isn't the best fit. For those seniors and their families, choosing an assisted living facility makes more sense. Unfortunately, finding the optimal care facility is easier said than done in today's day and age. That's when Always Best Care's assisted living referral services begin to make a lot of sense.

Assisted living is a form of housing intended for seniors who require varying degrees of medical and personal attention. Accommodations may include single rooms, apartments, or shared living arrangements. Assisted living communities are typically designed to resemble a home-like environment and are physically constructed to encourage the independence of residents.


Respite Care Louisville, CO

At assisted living communities, seniors receive help with daily activities such as bathing, dressing, and eating. They may also benefit from coordination of services with outside healthcare providers, and monitoring of resident activities to ensure their health, safety, and well-being. Caregivers who work at assisted living communities can also provide medication administration and personal care services for older adults.

Other services offered within assisted living communities can include some or all of the following:

  • Housekeeping
  • Laundry
  • Recreational Activities
  • Social Outings
  • Emergency Medical Response
  • Medication Monitoring
  • Family Visitation
  • Personal Care
 Caregivers Louisville, CO

At Always Best Care, our representatives can match your senior's emotional, physical, and financial needs with viable assisted living communities nearby. Results are based on comparative data, so you can select the best choice for you or your loved one.

Always Best Care works closely with local senior living communities to gain valuable knowledge that we then use to help seniors and their loved ones make informed decisions. This information can include basic care and rent, resident availability, and services provided. Because Always Best Care is compensated by these communities, we provide senior living referral services at no extra cost to you.

Some of the most popular assisted living communities to consider in our area include the following:

  • Morning Pointe of Louisville Senior Living
  • Magnolia Springs Louisville
  • Arcadia Senior Living Louisville
  • BeeHive Homes of Louisville
  • Brookdale Stonestreet
  • The Altenheim Senior Health Care Community
Home Care Louisville, CO

For many seniors, moving into a senior living community revolves around how and when they want to make a transition to more involved care. Some seniors are more proactive about transitioning to independent living. Others choose to remain home until their care needs or other requirements are satisfied. Remember - our staff is here to help. Contact our office today to learn more about assisted living communities and how we can find a facility that exceeds your expectations.

Louisville's Jack Plummer selected ACC Co-QB of the Week

247Sports Embed Resource...

247Sports Embed Resource

Louisville quarterback Jack Plummer has been selected as the ACC's Co-Quarterback of the Week, the league announced on Monday afternoon. Plummer shares the honor with NC State's Brennan Armstrong.

Plummer guided a Louisville offense that racked up 470 yards in a thrilling 38-31 win at Miami. He completed 24 of 37 pass attempts for 308 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception to go with 11 yards rushing on five carries. It marked his third 300-yard passing game of the season and is also third time that he threw for three or more touchdowns in a game this season. He completed passes to 12 different players and won the game with a 58-yard reception to Kevin Coleman.

The victory over the Hurricanes clinched a spot for Louisville in the ACC Championship game.

Here's this weeks list of ACC Players of the Week:

Co-QUARTERBACK Brennan Armstrong, NC State, QB, Shelby, Ohio Armstrong led the Wolfpack to its third straight win and second straight on the road with a 35-28 victory at Virginia Tech. The quarterback tallied 292 of total offense versus the Hokies - 89 rushing and 203 passing – and rushed for a pair of touchdowns and threw two more scores.

RUNNING BACK – Omarion Hampton, North Carolina, RB, Clayton, N.C. Hampton picks up his fourth conference weekly honor, as the Tar Heel running back tallied 178 yards on 19 carries and rushed for two touchdowns versus Clemson. Hampton leads the nation in rushing yards this season and has a nation-leading six 100-yard rushing games on the year.

RECEIVER – Xavier Restrepo, Miami, WR, Coconut Creek, Fla. The Hurricanes' top offensive performer Saturday, Restrepo had a career-high 193 receiving yards in a loss to top-10 Louisville. Restrepo hauled in eight passes on 10 targets and finished with a career mark on a day when Miami's offense totaled 31 points. Restrepo's longest catch of the day was 48 yards against the Cardinals, and he also had a touchdown catch.

OFFENSIVE LINEMAN – Will Putnam, Clemson, C, Tampa, Fla. Earning his second conference weekly honor, Putnam anchored an offensive line that allowed zero sacks for the third time this season and helped Clemson extend its active streak of victories when not allowing a sack to 40 consecutive games, dating to 2011. He also helped Clemson rush for 247 yards, its fifth 200-yard rushing game of the season, and helped Clemson reach 200 yards both rushing and passing for the fourth time this season. Putnam and the offensive line powered Will Shipley to a season-high 179 yards from scrimmage and helped three different Tigers score a rushing touchdown in the win over North Carolina.

DEFENSIVE LINEMAN – Dayon Hayes, Pitt, DE, Pittsburgh, Pa. Hayes was an absolute menace off the edge, collecting 2.0 quarterback sacks, 3.0 tackles-for-loss and two deflected passes in Pitt’s win over Boston College. On one of his pass breakups, he batted the ball directly back at the quarterback, who caught the ball and then was dropped for a two-yard loss by Hayes. Hayes had six total tackles on the night and helped limit the ACC's top rushing team to just 154 yards.

LINEBACKER – Kyle Efford, Georgia Tech, LB, Dacula, Ga. Efford posted a game-high 11 tackles and recorded a game-sealing interception in Georgia Tech’s bowl-eligibility-clinching 31-22 win over Syracuse. Efford's 11 tackles were a career-high. His first career interception came with 2:18 to go in the game to seal the victory. However, perhaps his biggest play of the game came in the third quarter when he and teammate Horace Lockett teamed up to stuff Syracuse on fourth-and-one from the GT 32-yard line, which gave Tech the ball back with its 24-10 lead intact. The big play proved to be instrumental later in the game when the Orange pulled within two points at 24-22. Efford led a defensive effort that saw Tech limit Syracuse to just 259 yards, nearly 100 yards below the Orange's 357.6-yard average this season.

DEFENSIVE BACK – Nate Wiggins, Clemson, CB, Atlanta, Ga. Wiggins recorded eight tackles, a touchdown-saving forced fumble, a pass breakup, and a game-sealing interception in Clemson’s win over North Carolina. He recorded his forced fumble in unbelievable fashion, chasing down the ACC's leading rusher from behind to force a fumble at the goal line. It was the second time this season Wiggins had chased down a ballcarrier from behind to force a fumble short of the goal line. Wiggins recorded his second interception of the season, which was also his second all-time against North Carolina, joining his pick in last year’s ACC Championship Game.

SPECIALIST – Will Bettridge, Virginia, K, Miami, Ohio Bettridge converted all three field-goal attempts in Virginia’s 30-27 victory against Duke. He made good on field goal tries from 46, 21, and 30 yards out. His final kick came with 3:43 to play and proved to be the winning margin in the game.

ROOKIE – Anthony Colandrea, Virginia, QB, St. Petersburg, Fla. Already named the Freshman of the Week by College Football Network (CFN), Colandrea completed 21-of-30 passes for 278 yards and three touchdowns in Virginia’s 30-27 win versus Duke.

The true freshman quarterback had 344 yards of total offense as the Cavaliers accounted for 448 yards of total offense against the Blue Devils.

LOUISVILLE, Colo. — Sierra Space is laying off many employees and contractors after completing the construction of its first Dream Chaser spacecraft.

The Louisville-based company, which employed about 2,200 people nationwide, informed about 165 employees and an unknown number of contract workers this week that their jobs were ending.

News of the jobs cuts was first reported by CNBC and confirmed by a company spokesperson.

The layoffs come just after Sierra Space sent its first completed Dream Chaser spacecraft off to a NASA testing facility ahead of the space plane’s first launch, which is targeting an April liftoff.

What issue would you like to see the Council address and resolve? I would like the Council to work together to improve Louisville’s economic vitality so we can retain and grow current businesses and attract new ones. First, we should revise our antiquated land use rules and planning processes. Some types of applications may not need multiple reviews by our planning commission. Others might be handled better administratively. Both our rules and processes need to be clear, consistent, predictable, expeditious, and fair. Second, in response to Marshall Fire survivors’ rebuilding of homes, our Community Development Department masterfully streamlined our residential permitting process. We should focus resources on improvements for commercial applicants also. Third, Council should rely primarily on incentives, not mandates in inducing changes by businesses.

The many open spaces in Louisville are beloved by residents. How can the city work to preserve open space while still addressing wildfire mitigation? Wildfire mitigation is essential to preserve Open Space. The Marshall Fire found an abundant fuel source in non-native species, and sound management requires control of both. It also requires maintaining vegetation at a reasonable height. Regenerative agriculture using cattle and goats can help accomplish this. Regularly mowing Open Space swaths bordering residential areas helps create a barrier to mitigate wildfire. Finally, voters should pass ballot measure 2C to ensure proper funding for preserving Open Space and ensuring wildfire mitigation.

How can Louisville continue to work towards its sustainability goals? One step is electing leaders who are committed to Louisville’s sustainability goals. I continue to strongly support the clean energy and carbon emission reduction goals we adopted in 2019, and the policy framework we passed in our 2020 Sustainability Action Plan. Voters should take time to learn candidates’ views about both. Another step is found in the Community Decarbonization Plan Council recently passed to encourage residents to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by retrofitting their homes. In partnership with Xcel, for example, we hope to provide incentives to residents to replace their gas furnaces with electric heat pumps. Third, Louisville needs to increase its housing stock, which presents a great opportunity to meet our sustainability goals. Building denser housing reduces its carbon footprint. Constructing it near our bus rapid transit station will encourage residents to use public transportation, reducing GHG emissions. Louisville can incentivize developers to achieve both with a mix of zoning changes and incentives.

Colorado-Based Aerospace Company Opening Manufacturing Facility at Bolder Innovation Campus in Louisville

Colorado-based aerospace company Tendeg has leased 100,080 square feet at the recently constructed Bolder Innovation Campus in Louisville that will house its new headquarters and an advanced manufacturing facility.

Colorado-based aerospace company Tendeg has leased 100,080 square feet at the recently constructed Bolder Innovation Campus in Louisville that will house its new headquarters and an advanced manufacturing facility. The facility will allow Tendeg to increase production of its deployable antennas used by aerospace and defense contractors across the U.S.

Tendeg leased the entirety of Building 1 at 1350 S. 96th St., just off Northwest Parkway. Built in 2022 by general contractor Murray & Stafford, the Class A industrial building has a 24-ft. clear height, ESFR sprinkler system, dock-high and drive-in loading, and 3,000 amps of available power.

CBRE’s Erik Abrahamson represented Tendeg in the lease, with Jeremy Kroner, also of CBRE, representing United Properties as the landlord.

“CBRE was able to listen to Tendeg’s needs both from a location and facility standpoint and run an efficient process to secure a new expansion location close to their Colorado headquarters. The building’s open floor plan, high clear height, and readily available power will help Tendeg scale its operations in an efficient manner,” said Mr. Abrahamson, senior vice president, CBRE. “This transaction is the latest indicator of how the aerospace market in the northwest corridor continues to grow.”

Tendeg is a growing aerospace, research and development, and advanced manufacturing company founded and based in Colorado. The company has operated in the northwest corridor for over 20 years with two other facilities nearby, including its former headquarters, all within the Colorado Tech Center (CTC).

“The new Bolder Innovation Campus building is perfectly suited for our needs, and Tendeg is happy for the opportunity to continue to expand and stay within our Louisville home,” said Gregg Freebury, founder and CEO, Tendeg. “Our unique deployable antennas for satellites have gained extensive traction for both Government and commercial programs. Most of our contracts will be supporting a constellation of satellites. Consequently, we need to build a state-of-the-art facility for our growing team and increase our production rates. This will be our third facility in Louisville, and this phase of our growth has been generously supported by tax incentive plans from the City of Louisville and the State of Colorado.”

Tendeg’s commitment means the recently completed Bolder Innovation Campus is now fully leased. Comprised of two buildings totaling 200,000 sq. ft., the campus was built with unique finishes and sustainability considerations in mind, including a cool roof and daylight light sensors for exterior lighting. The campus also has enhanced structural steel in the speed bays to allow for future solar panel installation and conduit in the parking lot to accommodate future EV charger installation. The site is four minutes from U.S. Highway 36, 15 minutes from Boulder, and approximately 30 minutes from downtown Denver and Denver International Airport.

“Boulder County offers a highly educated, robust technology and advanced manufacturing workforce,” said Mindy Rietz, vice president of development, United Properties. “We’re thrilled to offer businesses like Tendeg the opportunity to expand into a new, class A project in a prestigious and high barrier to entry location.”

Overall industrial leasing volume was up in Metro Denver in the second quarter of 2023 with over 2.9 million sq. ft. transacted, a 73% increase quarter over quarter, according to CBRE research.

Bardstown Bourbon Co. joins Whiskey Row in downtown Louisville. Here's a sneak peek inside

The windows of 730 W. Main St. have been covered up for months, as work continued on the tasting experience of Bardstown Bourbon Company in downtown Louisville.

During a recent media preview of the new space, which opens to the public Wednesday, the bourbon brand’s CEO, Mark Erwin, said he was excited to finally say, "Welcome in."

“When you walk in here, we want you to be wowed," Erwin told the Courier Journal.

It was the first time that windows went uncovered to let passersby get a peek inside and the daylight could shine on the posh details of what Erwin and his team are calling “Louisville Home Place” for the distillery that launched in 2016 and has an original home about 40 miles south in Bardstown.

The $5 million project has been in the works for over a year, following the passing of House Bill 500, in which the Kentucky General Assembly allowed distillers to sell bottles at gift shops and open satellite tasting rooms.

That’s some of what you’ll find at the downtown Louisville version of Bardstown Bourbon Company. Upon walking in, you’ll see an organized area to the left with rows of bourbon bottles on lit-up display, next to a retail area showcasing more bottles, T-shirts, glassware and other merchandise. To the right is a moss background behind an impressive video wall showing glimpses of the distillery’s process.

In between, you’ll see the beautiful marble bar with another moss background and a check-out area with a background reminiscent of a green and glossy rock climbing wall.

These are the details that Erwin says provide “Instagram moments” and “Wow” moments for patrons.

“We don’t want to be just another downtown bar,” Erwin said. “We’re a full bourbon experience.”

To add to that, the operation includes a classroom setting where guests can learn the ins and outs of Bardstown Bourbon Company’s products, on a walk-in or reservation basis. Tastings might involve morsels of cacao or Pop Rocks to accentuate the flavors.

“This allows us to bring the modern bourbon experience that we have down in Bardstown to folks in Louisville who might not make it Bardstown,” Erwin said. “It’s a great opportunity for us to share what goes on at the distillery.”

The location on Whiskey Row is somewhat strategic, he said. It follows the openings of other nearby experiences, such as Buzzard’s Roost, Doc's Bourbon Room, Expo Bar, Barrels & Billets, and an expanded Angel's Envy distillery.

“We don’t want to miss that crowd,” he said.

And it will hopefully draw more interest in Bardstown Bourbon Company overall, said Dan Callaway, vice president of product development.

“When you come to see us in Bardstown, it’s intentional,” Callaway said. “We want to reach more people. I’m excited for more people to know our brand. We’re still a well-kept secret in some ways.”

Now, in downtown Louisville, the secret is out. Bardstown Bourbon Company’s tasting experience is open Tuesday-Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Find more details at bardstownbourbon.com/plan-a-visit/.
