In-Home Support Services (IHSS)
In-Home Support Service (IHSS) is a fairly new Medicaid program and PASCO was one of the first agencies in Colorado to provide this consumer friendly service. IHSS enables consumers to have real choices in selecting, managing, and, if necessary, firing their attendants while still having the protection of an agency, that can provide on-call, back-up services. The service is geared to individuals with severe disabilities who are receiving Medicaid and who need assistance with various activities of daily living, including: transferring, bathing, bowel/bladder and skin care, feeding, etc. Attendants providing this necessary service do not have to be CNA’s.
In-Home Support Services are a cross between the Medicaid Home Health program and the Consumer Directed Attendant Services (CDAS) program. Through an arrangement with the How To Place, PASCO will assist consumers requesting: Peer Counseling, I & R, Advocacy and Independent Living Skills Training.
PASCO helps facilitate In-Home Support Services (IHSS) as well as provide its comprehensive back-up system throughout Colorado’s Front Range (Adams, Arapahoe, Boulder, Broomfield, Clear Creek, Denver, Douglas, Gilpin, Jefferson, Larimer, Park & Weld counties) daily.
