Thank you for your interest in Catharine’s Quality of Life Homes (CQLH). As a prospective employee, we want you to know as much as possible about us in our interview process so that you are comfortable as you consider us for employment.
Catharine’s Quality of Life Homes was started in 1992, by Dick and Penny Page in response to care needs of Dick’s mother (Catharine) who had both Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases. Catharine’s quality of life in a nursing home became such an issue that Dick built a home for her and took a leave of absence from the “corporate world” to care for her personally. Caring for his mother became such a life-changing experience he never returned to the corporate world, and he and Penny provided the “hands-on” care for his mother and other persons for nine years. With this background, Dick and Penny personally understand the concerns and fears of resident families and the challenging work of dedicated and loving staff.
Catharine’s Quality of Life Homes operates Assisted Living Homes located in Lakewood and Littleton. Each home is a beautiful large ranch style suburban residence for up to nine senior residents. CQLH specializes in caring for persons who suffer from Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. Our residents are all ambulatory, sleep through the night and are semi-independent but have a range of care needs. Our full-time staff works 12 hour shifts. Medication administration, charting and daily written observations are made in a professional manner to ensure the safety of our residents. Meals are nutritious, balanced and prepared according to CQLH’s specifications and planned methods of on-site preparation.
Our main focus is on interacting with our residents in a wide range of small-family planned and informal activities. To this end we also employ part-time staff who work in our homes during the mornings and evenings. The purpose of the part-time staff is to ensure that one staff member can ALWAYS be interacting with residents NOT so that both staff can be cleaning or preparing meals.
