NOAH - Nurse Assisted Living Homes on Increase throughout statePublished 2/10/2003

Nurse Assisted Living Homes are popping up all over Denver. There are about 25 nurse owned ranch style Assisted Living Homes in the metro area. Some of the reasons for this new type of employment could be the increase in wages, less stress than working in hospitals, being your own boss or from the satisfaction of making the elderly people happy by spending more time with them and less time doing paper work. The client to nurse ratio is about 1 to 5.

These nurses are dedicated to helping the elderly population and have the goal of "keep people out of nursing homes that do not belong there." These homes, run by RNs, know how to deal with incontinence, know how to spot a Urinary Tract infection and know how to communicate with the physicians to explain any unusual or abnormal conditions.

These homes are licensed by the state and are fully insured. They have the same licensure as the large assisted living facilities. They have monitored fire alarm systems, and meet all the handicapped criteria, some are wheelchair accessible. These homes take private pay, insurance, or Medicad. The homes are staffed 24 hours a day and provide stimulating activities throughout the day, such as reading the newspaper out loud, nail grooming, health teaching, arts, crafts, and exercising.

The staff provides all the meals and snacks. These homes assist with showers, dressing ADL’s and whatever needs to be done. We now have time to put hand lotion on our clients and give backed rubs, as compared to working in the hospitals with a high staff ratio, where the extra comfort items don’t happen.

These homes take clients with Parkinson, heart disease, arthritis, osteoporosis, dementia, etc. They also offer day care and respite care.

For more information please contact NOAH president Eunice Kinrade, 303-948-0555. Eunice has 4 of these residential ranch-style assisted living homes in Littleton.
