Our Denver-based non-profit agency is unique to the U.S. Since 1923, our mission is to provide FREE, in-home and community-based nursing care to the poor, sick elderly who are uninsured or underinsured and without other resources or family support. Our senior people are given the highest quality of nursing care and services so that they may live safe, healthier, independent and with dignity as they age in place in their homes. Our mission is to provide this care for everyone, regardless of faith, culture, or any other status of the individual.DHHA Video

What physicians are saying about our nursing care


April 16, 2013

To Dominican Home Health Agency:

As a geriatrician at Denver Health, I have turned to DHHA countless times over the years for help with our patients. I just wanted to thank you and your incredible staff for all the excellent nursing care your agency has delivered to my many patients in need.

So many of our patients at Denver Health do not qualify for benefits that would allow them to access care assistance in their homes. And yet, without that help, there is no question that these patients suffer worse health outcomes and have more need for emergency department and inpatient hospitalization care. Your agency has come to the rescue for these patients; I cannot overstate how much this has helped many of our frail seniors.

Not only do your team members provide excellent nursing care, but they offer that critical human contact – a listening ear, a friendly visit, a compassionate care giver.
In addition, I always know, as a physician, that your team will communicate with our team, helping us work together to provide the best care possible for our mutual patients.

Thank you to you and your team for all your amazing care.
You are so appreciated by Denver Health Geriatrics.

Sincerely,

Robin Yasui, MD
