Sandi McCann | Founder & President
Home Care of the Rockies

Sandi McCann was looking for more than a job when she moved on from a career in marketing and founded Home Care of the Rockies in 2012. She wanted to make a meaningful difference in the lives of others. Inspired by caring for a terminally ill family member, Sandi believed that older adults deserved exceptional care provided by trained and prepared professionals.

With her team, she developed the HomeCare 100 Caregiver Training Program to create a professional and qualified team of caregivers who are prepared to care for older adults with a range of complex needs.

The HomeCare 100 is the only comprehensive caregiver training program available in the region, and one of the only training programs in the nation that provides in-person classroom training and hands-on practice and demonstrations to caregivers during trainings.

She has become a valued resource to families and care partners seeking care solutions. A dynamic speaker, Sandi is also an advocate for compassionate care and wellness for both seniors and caregivers.
