About Our Staff
Jonathan Wells, CSA – Owner
Welcome to Home Care Assistance of Douglas County. My name is Jonathan and I am the Co-Owner and Care Administrator of Home Care Assistance of Douglas County. Our mission is to “Change the Way the World Ages.” I am privileged to be able to help the seniors and families of Douglas County navigate the confusing health care industry, finding the care that works best for them.
You may be stressed, overwhelmed and wondering if you are making a good choice for yourself or your loved one. You may need information on just what home care is and how it truly works. I have personally seen how difficult these decisions can be, and I understand that having a resource and an advocate helping you during the process can be a huge relief. Please know that you are not alone.
You may be surprised at the quality of care that can be delivered right in the comfort of your loved one’s home. Whether your need is for 24/7 care, hourly care, or just during a short recovery after hospitalization, our care team is ready to help. For more information about in-home care or if you are in need of immediate assistance, please contact me at 720-287-1685. I’d be honored to assist you.

Hope Freeman – Care Manager
Hope’s front line experience in memory care, assisted living and home health care have given her insight into what makes a special caregiver. She also has a knack for matching just the right caregiver to our client’s.
At Home Care Assistance, only 1 in 25 applicants meet our standards, having passed background check and our exclusive PhD developed caregiving exam. “Our Balanced Care Method is what sets us apart. In each care plan we assign our caregivers activities and responsibilities to address the body, mind and spirit of our clients. It encourages them to work with the client to find and develop their sense of purpose and reason for living healthy and independent.”
Additionally, we offer our caregivers exclusive training at our Home Care Assistance University. This program provides them with access to training in Alzheimer’s and dementia care, conditions that affect older adults, hospital to home care, cooking techniques, live in care and many other in-home care skills. Throughout the hiring, training and developmental stages, Hope concentrates on providing caregivers with the tools to be successful in every situation. This leads to satisfied clientele and happy caregivers.
Hope meets with each client and their family in order to become familiar with their environment and to ensure that she understands the needs from the client’s perspective. This allows her to clearly communicate with her staff and provide insight into the client’s care plan from a caregiver’s perspective. “Our door is always open to both caregivers and clients. We make sure that we are in constant communication with everyone involved.”
