GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. - When we're sick or injured, we know that the hospital will take care of us. But when it comes to chronic illness' and recovery, sometimes the best care comes from home.
SummitWest Care, previously Home Care of the Grand Valley, operates under this philosophy.
They offer a variety of services from infants to the elderly, all in the comfort and safety of your own home, such as pediatric and newborn care, and skilled services which is skilled nursing, physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy.
Their rebranding, which kicked off the first of this year, is a result of their growing reach across Western Colorado, now serving five counties.
And besides home health care being more comfortable and convenient, it's also more cost affective, with services often being less expensive than those you will find at a health care facility or hospital.
Dale Reece is a proponent of SummitWest Care, who helped him through physical therapy after an intense knee operation left him homebound for 8 weeks.
But he's just one of many SummitWest Care has helped, and will help, in the future of health care.
