CDHS names Viki Manley as new Director of the Office of Long Term Care
Congratulations to Viki Manley; she has been named the new Director of the Office of Long Term Care (OLTC) for CDHS.
Viki has spent her entire career in public service, most recently leading the Colorado State Veterans Nursing Homes. Her leadership enabled the Colorado State Veterans Nursing Home at Homelake to be accepted into the registry of the Eden Alternative, an organization championing the transformation of long-term care. The Eden Alternative supports person-directed values including choice, dignity, respect, self-determination and purposeful living.
Under Viki’s leadership, the Colorado State VeteransNursing Home at Rifle received a $2.4 million grant from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs for capital improvement. The Home was remodeled, the project enlarged the gym and added new rehabilitation equipment, increased the number of beds by six, built a solarium in the commons area, and landscaped the outside grounds.
In addition, Rifle received a C-Stat award for making substantial progress in reducing the presence of pressure ulcers, unexpected weight loss or gain, and the use of anti-psychotic medications for residents.
