In-Home Nursing Program
Skilled Nursing Care
Quality nursing care has been a core tenant of Dominican Home Health Agency (DHHA) for over 90 years. Our nurses carry on the mission of the Dominican Sisters of the Sick Poor bringing skill and compassion to the poor and vulnerable patients we encounter. DHHA utilizes Registered Nurses to provide care to disabled adults and seniors in the home. Our nurses go above and beyond just taking vital signs and checking medications — we provide in-depth, holistic care in the home that encourages independence, improves health outcomes, and allows our patients to age with dignity.
Certified Nursing Assistants (CNA) provide a wealth of personal care to the homebound, sick and frail elderly such as bathing, dressing, meal preparation, and laundry. Our dedicated and caring home health aides provide personal care to help our pa-tients remain safe and independent in their homes.
Patient Health Advocacy
Our Patient Health Advocate works directly with patients to advocate for their health and reduce gaps in their care. The PHA works with community agencies to connect patients to available resources. These may include assisted living organizations, vision and dental resources, hospice care, legal services, benefits eligibility, mental health services, home-meal delivery, and transportation.
Food for Patients program
In partnership with Food Bank of the Rockies and generous donations, DHHA advocates and nurses are able to provide nutritious food for patients during their visit.
Pastoral Care / Friendly Visitor program
Seminarians and community volunteers provide both spiritual and social visits in person and/or by phone for patients. We feel these visits improve health by reducing isolation and feeding the soul and spirit of our patients.
Nurse-led exercise program
With doctor's approval, the in-home nursing visit can include an exercise program for increased balance, strength and mobility to improve health outcomes and quality of life.
Patient Financial Assistance
A special fund from local foundations is available for critical needs of our patients. These needs can include life-saving medications, specialized equipment, dietary supplements or other items or services that will potentially avert a crisis in the future.
Community Benefit Programs

DHHA provides mobile wellness clinics at low-income housing sites in the Denver metro area. These nurse-run clinics assist residents with chronic disease management, medication adherence, and connection to community resources that are instrumental in maintaining their quality of life and their independence. We utilize volunteer nurses to provide a large portion of the care, so please contact us if you are interested in volunteering your nursing skills to improve the health and wellness of hundreds of poor, sick elderly in your community!
