We ARE going to Achieve our Mission and Vision
The lofty Mission and Vision, which Vibrance Senior Care (VSC) has established will be achieved through support and engagement of community members, and a knowledgeable, mission driven team. Additionally, the success of our efforts requires strong partnerships/collaborations with other agencies similarly concerned with the well being of seniors throughout our community. An example of such a collaboration which VSC is aligned with, is the Pikes Peak Elder Abuse Coalition. This community driven coalition coupled with VSC's services is evidence that, 1) Elder abuse is present throughout our community, & 2) Organizations are concerned and actively working to eliminate all cases of elder abuse. With your help and the collective effort we can care for those in need.
Specifically VSC's goals will be accomplished through our multi-tiered programming which provide support for Victims of Elder Abuse, and Elders-at-large. All support given depends on the needs of each individual, and is tailored to fit their needs. Broadly speaking VSC aims to induce stability, confidence and autonomy of all program participants.
Vibrance Senior Care Inc. is a registered Nonprofit Corporation in the State of Colorado.
VSC is a recognized 501 c(3) charitable organization.
How it all started
The conceptualization of Vibrance Senior Care stems from Founder Gloria Horne's early life experiences with the less than ideal care her grandmother was given in a long-term care facility. Gloria's grandmother was in a facility where she was over-medicated and became discombobulated as a result. What was once a jovial and loving grandmother was transformed into something other. To see a seemingly unnecessary transformation was both confusing and disheartening. The grandmother which Gloria had grown to love and cherish was no longer present.
Unfortunately, this early experience was repeated in 2006 with Gloria's mother-in-law. Again, the provision of care without taking the patient's autonomy into account was palpable. Undergoing this psychological trauma again, solidified the foundation for what would become Vibrance Senior Care. It was also during this time period that Gloria became involved with the Area Agency on Aging. Which introduced her to a community of people who collectively aim to improve life for seniors.
The final stage which ensured the eventual creation of Vibrance Senior Care, resulted from a total loss for Gloria during the 2012 Waldo Canyon Fire. This traumatic experience of total loss introduced Gloria to a network of people. Who helped an entire community reestablish seemingly all aspects of life. For Gloria the charitable nature and environment generated during the catastrophe, solidified a need for her to do similar work. It became apparent to Gloria that she needed to dedicate her time and available resources to the improvement of lives of an often-overlooked group: Seniors.
