In July 2022, with funds from the Women’s Foundation of Colorado, The Senior Hub launched the BIPOC Remote Care Work Program. This program supports 28 Black, Indigenous, and Women of Color (BIPOC women) with informal and formal medical and caregiving backgrounds to provide remote care to older adults in our community. These women receive a total of four cash stipends and have the ability to assume a future case load at an hourly wage.
Through this program, these Remote Care Workers utilize the Routinify software program via tablets and laptops to set up client features like Care Circle and Digital Care Plan. These services support older adults with managing their medications, tracking their exercise, monitoring their fluid intake, tracking their sleep, and much, much more.
Remote Care Workers also help older adults schedule Telehealth / Telecare visits and access digital health related resources.
Remote Care Work is the NOW of “wellness care,” and allows BIPOC medical professionals and professional caregivers to earn a cash stipend; be gifted a laptop, software, and tablet to craft viable contract work opportunities for themselves; and work with flexibility while engaging older adults across the state of Colorado.
