Connections has recently partnered with our sister CIL (Center for Independent Living), Center for People With Disabilities (CPWD) based out of Boulder, to participate in the Veterans Independence Program. CPWD is contracted through the Veterans Affairs. All interest is referred to CPWD and they’ll contact you for further instruction.
The Veterans Independence Program is also accessible to eligible Veterans who don’t have the capacity to self-direct their care. In this case, the Veteran would designate someone as an Authorized Representative to act on their behalf and assist in the decision-making process. If you are an Authorized Representative for a Veteran and are interested in learning more about the VIP program, we’d love to hear from you.
Note: The Authorized Representative is not a paid position and cannot be the same person as the paid caregiver
