DENVER, Jan. 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet (D-CO) joined InnovAge today to celebrate the grand opening of the nonprofit's newest adult day/health center in Denver. The new center, called InnovAge Greater Colorado PACE – Denver, is a 36,000 square-foot facility located on two acres at 1265 South Broadway (formerly the location of Gump Glass). The new center replaced the nearby InnovAge Greater Colorado PACE – Capitol Center, which had outgrown its current facility, and serves the growing need for services for the elderly in central Denver.
"We have seen a great demand for this innovative system of care designed to meet the needs of individuals who need a nursing home level of care but who want to remain living in their homes and communities," said Maureen Hewitt, president and CEO of InnovAge. "Our new facility features state-of-the-art technology and the latest in elder-care innovations, and it will allow us to nearly double our capacity to more than 750 participants and grow our staff to more than 150 employees."
InnovAge Greater Colorado PACE (IGCP) is a part of Medicare's national Program of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) that helps qualified seniors and those over age 55 living with disabilities to live as independently as possible rather than in nursing centers. IGCP provides and coordinates healthcare, in-home care and a variety of support services to help many aging individuals continue to live in their communities. The program also provides caregivers with the peace of mind that their loved ones are enjoying the best quality of life possible, and offers them a respite from the often strenuous demands of care-giving.
"InnovAge's opening of this facility represents an ongoing commitment to provide Denver-area seniors with high-quality health care services and support," said Sen. Bennet. "In addition, this PACE program gives families the help they need to allow their elderly loved ones to stay in their homes and communities."
InnovAge has supported and cared for thousands of seniors since its PACE program began in 1991. The InnovAge Greater Colorado PACE – Denver Center is the newest of five Colorado InnovAge PACE centers. The organization expects to open an additional PACE center in 2014 located in Loveland to serve northern Colorado residents.
The new center includes a primary care clinic with seven exam rooms and a room for specialty physicians; nurse triage and treatment; a therapy gym that supports physical, occupational and speech therapies; a dental examination and treatment room; seven day rooms for social activities -- with attached quiet rooms; a dining room and various other rooms for social work, home care, and nutrition. The new center also incorporates the InnovAge transportation facility, which was previously located at 28th and Larimer streets downtown.
"With a restoration of the Gump Glass building into this beautiful new facility, InnovAge is playing a major role in the renovation of this historic community in central Denver," said Hewitt.
InnovAge Greater Colorado PACE is a program of InnovAge, a nonprofit offering a broad range of services for aging adults and other disabled individuals in need of care and support to remain independent in their homes and communities. InnovAge currently operates in Colorado and New Mexico, with expansion into California in 2014. InnovAge offers in-home care services, healthcare and day programs, care management, memory loss programs and affordable senior housing. The organization's mission is to sustain and enhance the independence and quality of life on their terms for those it serves.

We are always online. We access our data, our finances, work, and various services on the Internet. But we live in a congested world of information in which the roads were built two decades ago. The quest for better, faster Internet routing has been around for a decade, but nobody solved this problem. We’ve seen band aid approaches like CDNs that attack a niche's slice of static content part of the Internet, but that’s it. It does not address the dynamic services-based Internet of today. It doe...

In the 21st century, security on the Internet has become one of the most important issues. We hear more and more about cyber-attacks on the websites of large corporations, banks and even small businesses. When online we’re concerned not only for our own safety but also our privacy. We have to know that hackers usually start their preparation by investigating the private information of admins – the habits, interests, visited websites and so on. On the other hand, our own security is in danger bec...

DevOps is speeding towards the IT world like a freight train and the hype around it is deafening. There is no reason to be afraid of this change as it is the natural reaction to the agile movement that revolutionized development just a few years ago. By definition, DevOps is the natural alignment of IT performance to business profitability. The relevance of this has yet to be quantified but it has been suggested that the route to the CEO’s chair will come from the IT leaders that successfully ma...

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.

Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to cloud-based infrastructures. Storage performance in virtualized environments isn’t just about IOPS anymore. Instead, you need to guarantee performance for individual VMs, helping applications maintain performance as the number of VMs continues to go up in real time. In his session at Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, Product and Marketing at Tintri, wil...

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and microservices. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your conta...

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
