Elane L. Shirar, M.D., expanded her Rocky Mountain Senior Care medical practice and established a primary care clinic and house call program at Covenant Village of Colorado, 9153 Yarrow Street, Westminster.
The office is open daily, and the medical team is
on call after hours and on weekends. Visits aren’t limited to office
appointments. Through the practice’s house call program, the medical team will also
visit patients in their homes — whether they live at Covenant Village or in the
surrounding Westminster community. House calls can also include laboratory,
ultrasound and x-ray diagnostic testing.
“Dr. Shirar’s practice is a benefit to the Westminster community as well as Covenant Village residents,” says Covenant Village of Colorado Executive Director Mark Osweiler. “Patients have access to top-tier medical care without even leaving home. They could be living in a home in Westminster, in a Covenant Village apartment or duplex home, in assisted living, or recuperating in our rehab center.”
After practicing for more than 20 years, Dr. Shirar says she established the house call program to address the unique needs of her senior patients. She’s been visiting patients in their homes for more than 10 years, and demand for the personal, in-home attention has grown steadily. In addition to the new office at Covenant Village, Rocky Mountain Senior Care has offices in Northglenn, Broomfield and Golden.
In addition to Dr. Shirar and other Rocky Mountain Senior Care physicians, the medical team at Covenant Village includes nurse practitioner Candi Lobenstein and a medical assistant. The practice accepts self-pay and all insurance except Kaiser. For more information or to make an appointment, call (720) 434-4876.
