Walnut Creek, CA (PRWEB) May 25, 2011
Granite Mountain Home Care & Hospice, a division of Professional Healthcare and a leading provider of home nursing, rehabilitation therapy, and hospice services in Prescott, Arizona, has expanded its service area southward into Anthem, Arizona and other cities in Maricopa County, just north of Phoenix. This allows the company to provide continuing care to families throughout a larger region of the state and better serve its patients who regularly visit Phoenix hospitals.
According to 2010 U.S. census data, Arizona’s population has increased over 28 percent in ten years, with 109 percent growth in the Phoenix area. “The growth and expansion of our Granite Mountain division is a direct reflection of the growing demands for quality home care in Arizona,” explains John Griscavage, CEO.
As Baby Boomers age, it expected that the percentage of people age 65 and older will grow from today’s 13 percent to about 20 percent in the next two decades, according to the Federal Interagency Forum on Aging. The elder population is the group that experiences increased, age-related health care needs. “The vast majority of people prefer to receive medical care and rehab therapy in their own homes whenever possible, where they can recuperate in comfortable, familiar surroundings,” continues Griscavage. “We are pleased to provide skilled, compassionate in-home care, including the unique, specialized resources available to the entire family during end-of-life care.”
Granite Mountain Home Care & Hospice is a fully licensed agency offering home health services and hospice care to families in Prescott, Arizona and surrounding cities for nearly 20 years. Its service area has recently expanded to Anthem and other cities in Maricopa County.
