Host Home Provider of the Month

Please join us in congratulating our final Host Home Provider of the Month for 2020, Alice Bomboma!The following write-up was produced by RPC Shanita Lloyd:

I am nominating Alice B for HHP of the month. Alice has my PRS in her home and we know she can have high expectations at times. Alice welcomed this person in her home with open arms and a big heart. Alice has not once complained about the individual’s long list of expectations of her perfect host home, she does everything with a warm smile on her face. The PRS has had issues with dogs in the past but Alice has allowed her to have her service dog in the home and from this, I have seen great improvement in symptoms. Alice is a great asset to the team and we are happy to have her.

Host Home Provider of the Month

Please join us in congratulating our recent Host Home Provider of the Month, Christine Silitonga.

The following write-ups were produced by our Denver Metro 3 Team:

We first met Christine Silitonga in July of 2019 when her PRS was discharged from Wheat Ridge Regional Center to her home. From day one, he was considered part of her family and enjoyed BBQ’s, parties and other activities with them when able. Although it was challenging in the beginning due to increased symptoms of dementia, Christine kept moving forward, showing her love and compassion for this individual as he struggled through numerous health issues. She was dedicated, worked around the clock and always kept a positive attitude. Christine was there day in and day out while this person endured multiple hospitalizations. Hospital staff would call Christine for assistance as they could see how strong their bond was. She could calm this person down when he was in pain and feed him when he wouldn’t eat for anyone else. Christine, his med proxy, and team at Support, Inc worked together to challenge medical decisions to ensure he got the best care possible. She was an advocate for him, showed the world that he had a will to live and that he most certainly had a good quality of life.

After a recent hospitalization, Christine went to great lengths to set up this person’s room as though he were at the hospital so she could provide continuous care to him in the comfort of his own home. Those who previously worked with this individual, his case manager at the CCB and his whole team at Support, Inc will be forever grateful for the love and compassion that he was shown at Christine’s home and we know that if he could tell us now, he would say that he lived his best life, right up until his last breath.
-Dani Gordon/Associate Director, Support, Inc.

Christine has been an exemplary provider since I first met her, and I had no doubt our PRS would get amazing care. From the get-go, she showed a willingness to care for him no matter the difficulty. As this person’s health began to decline, she did everything in her power to treat him with love and dignity and was a true advocate. She always put him first, including staying numerous days and nights in the hospital with him to ensure he got the best care possible. She took on an amazing amount of health assignments to keep this individual healthy and happy at home. She did these things until he eventually passed on, but we never doubted her love and commitment to him every single day. Christine deserves this as much as any person in this organization. Congratulations Christine 🙂

Host Home Provider of the Month: Tenzing Lama

Please join us in congratulating our recent Host Home Provider of the Month, Tenzing Lama!

The following write-up was produced by RPC Katelyn Bruce on the Denver Metro 2 Team:

I first met Tenzing Lama when I was searching for a home for a client that was hard to place given her supervision requirements and financial struggles. Since moving in, Lama has done amazing with this client, including making her comfortable, encouraging her time with her daughter, and doing his best to get her financial issues taken care of. I was super new to this client but I hadn’t seen her happier than she is when I visit her at Lama’s home, which is why I’m nominating Tenzing Lama as HHP of the month. He is grateful and accommodating and always offers me the best green tea in the world when I come out to the home.

Thank you, Lama, for everything you’ve done and continue to do. (You guys, he also has two super tiny cute dogs that are a JOY to be around…. Hi Tommy!!!)

Provider Pay Day For May: Important Information and Updates

We know that routines like Host Home Provider pay day can be confusing with all of the current shutdowns. In an effort to honor the government requests for social distancing as well as our client’s fragile health, we will be mailing Host Home checks this month. Repeat, we are not handing checks out to any HHP, nor will anyone be able to pick them up at any office. HHP checks will be placed in the mail on Friday, April 24th. The intent is that Host Homes will receive the checks on or before May 1st. Providers may cash the checks as early as April 30th but remember the bank will reject any checks presented before April 30th.

We are aware that some HHP paychecks may be incorrect due to early check printing. We want to assure you that we will issue (and mail) corrections immediately when notified for any under payments and that we will reduce next month’s payments for any over payments.

We also want to let you know that we are mailing client personal needs funds (both cash and checks) along with bus passes too.

One final reminder, we are not sending bus passes this month because we mailed the passes to providers with the last pay day.  We do not intend to send bus passes until the Access-A-Ride services are up and running for a full month.

We will be available if you have any questions. And thank you for bearing with us while we navigate new routines and solutions together.
