Home Care

Cascade Home Care was created in 2002 to further the mission of improving the quality of life for individuals with disabilities living in our community. The program started out serving only adults with developmental disability diagnoses. In 2009, the agency began offering services to individuals with traumatic brain injury (TBI) and to children with developmental disabilities. In 2014, we began offering services to senior clients through private pay.

By providing compassionate, competent care, we help extend independent living while promoting physical and mental well-being. It is our goal to enhance the quality of life for each and every person we serve.

Cascade Connections has been a part of the community for over 30 years. Since then, our agency has grown and now serves our community in many ways. Feel free to ask us about our other services.

Our Home Care Aides

Our caring and compassionate home care aides are thoroughly screened and trained to ensure that you receive the highest standard of care. Aides are screened through a number of processes, including interviews, reference checks, background checks, and driving abstracts. In addition, we are a drug free workplace and require our staff to pass initial and random drug testing. Along with a home care aide license, we also require all of our home care aides to have the following knowledge and skills:

  • CPR/first aid
  • Developmental disabilities specialty
  • Drug awareness

Home care aides also enhance their knowledge through various continuing education training courses, provided by our accredited training facility throughout the year.


Becoming a Client

1. Call Us
We would love to answer your questions. We will set up a time for you to meet with our program director personally.

2. Confidential assessment
We meet with you at your home to learn more about your preferences and explain our services. Our assessments are always free and there is no obligation.

3. Introduction
From the assessment, we’ll select a home care aide that fits your needs. Our management staff will accompany this aide to your home where you’ll have an opportunity to interview them to ensure a good fit, further discuss your preferences and create your schedule.

4. Follow up
We are always looking for ways to improve. Our management staff perform routine, scheduled check-ins. You always have a voice in your care.

If you are an individual with disabilities, interested in receiving state funding support, for either personal care and/or respite care, please contact your case manager. If you have yet to be appointed a case manager, your local Developmental Disabilities Administration office can assist you with the process. Cascade Connections Home Care personally welcomes any questions you may have.
