Sid Springer is a self-professed people person. He loves connecting with others, building relationships, and helping out. So, it’s no surprise he thrives as the HomeCare of the Rockies Business Development Director where he meets regularly with our community and workforce development partners.
Sid works with discharge planners, caseworkers, senior living administrators and staff, physicians, representatives from Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s associations, and others to build mutually beneficial relationships that can help bridge care services for older adults throughout the community.
A Longmont resident, Sid joined HomeCare of the Rockies after a career in sales and marketing. As a longtime caregiver to his wife, who is living with dementia and other health concerns, working with an agency looking to improve the way care is delivered to older adults was a natural fit.
He is passionate about the work, yet still finds time for Bible study, golf, and travel.
Catherine Lanza, LPN, combines her vast experience in caregiving with extensive clinical knowledge of patient care to her role as Director of Client Development.
Throughout her career, Catherine has been personally involved in all aspects of client interaction. Previously, she served as director of client development for Westchester Family Care in New York, working for Sandi’s colleague and friend, agency owner Glenn Lane.
At HomeCare of the Rockies, Catherine will collaborate with our community partners, caregivers, and clients, to understand each client’s unique care needs and help families navigate the care-support process to receive the kind of exceptional care they deserve. She is known for her compassion and empathetic ear and has received awards for her bedside manner and exceptional performance.
When she’s not supporting families, community partners, and caregivers, Catherine enjoys riding her E-bike, taking exercise classes, exploring new towns, and spending time with her youngest daughter who lives in Boulder.
Sandi McCann was looking for more than a job when she moved on from a career in marketing and founded HomeCare 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 sister Maureen McCann, Sandi set out to create a company that would both support the clients who needed care and the professionals who provide it.
In the years since, not only has HomeCare of the Rockies been recognized for exceptional care delivery, but McCann has become a leader in Workforce Development and caregiver training.
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.
Under Sandi’s innovative and visionary leadership, HomeCare of the Rockies has become known for its exceptional care quality and support, reliability and professionalism, and advanced caregiver training and compassionate service.
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.
Sandi was elected to serve on the Home Care Association of America (HCAOA) 2021 Board of Directors and also serves on its Leadership Conference & Education Committee. She has extensive knowledge in the health, financial, and social issues that impact seniors and their families. She also has a diverse background in business and corporate marketing.
Under her leadership HomeCare of the Rockies was awarded the 2020 Innovative Business of the Year by the Boulder Chamber of Commerce, in Celebration of Leadership.
She stays grounded through daily video chats with her two young grandchildren in-between visits to see them in Savannah, GA. She also maintains a regular yoga practice, hikes in the mountains, and plays the djembe drum as part of the Longmont drum circle.
