Touch of Care recently had three unannounced surveys by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE). Touch of Care-Delta, Touch of Care-Montrose, and Touch of Care-In Home Support Services (IHSS) recently completed onsite surveys and for the second three-year-cycle in a row were all deemed deficiency free.
"Touch of Care strives to not only provide excellent care to our clients, but to also exceed all expectations in all aspects of our organization," April Martinez, IHSS agency manager said. "We would like to thank all of our staff in the office and out in the field who work to help at risk individuals remain independently in their homes."
Touch of Care continues to work to set itself apart from other agencies through its quality of care. "Touch of Care is not a franchise, rather a locally owned and operated business," said Tracy Martinez, administrator. "We started Touch of Care from the ground up over 15 years ago and are proud when the hard work of all those involved is recognized by the entities who oversee our programs."
