VitalStim Therapy is a safe and effective, FDA-approved treatment for patients with swallowing disorders. The goals of this program are to strengthen and re-educate the muscles in the throat and improve motor control of the swallowing mechanism. Research shows this method has a greater success in regaining normal swallow as opposed to traditional methods of exercise and diet modification alone. Our Swallowing Program Therapist is certified.

Our program will train and educate family members and friends to care for their loved ones. If you have Medicaid you may qualify for this program. The program is designed to provide care, training & resources at home for elderly, disabled or children with disabilities. We can train and educate family members or friends to care for the client while they work as an employee of SummitWest Care. If no family member or friend is available, we will train a caregiver for the patient and their specific needs.

Our Social Workers can mediate and offer solutions to crisis situations, as well as teach independent behavioral skills.

Hear it from the people we proudly serve
“When first starting, I had no idea what to expect or what I needed. It was all new territory to me. I definitely had my guard up. Morgan and Pam broke down my barriers and fears. They took the time to explain and made sure I understood what was happening. They became members of my care team. When it came time to move forward in my recovery, it was sad that my time with them was over. Morgan and Pam promised a lot and delivered more. As issues came up, they were always available with their knowledge and compassion. All I can say about SummitWest Care is WOW!”Dale R.
SummitWest Care staff was really nice and caring!Pat
SummitWest Care was a Godsend. I had bilateral knee replacements and having physical therapy at home for the first few weeks was so helpful. James T. was our PT, he helped everyone understand what we were trying to obtain as a result from physical therapy. His professionalism and encouragement made me try harder and he tolerated our crazy dogs and family. Thank you!Janet Grant
We have used SummitWest Care four different times and have always received very good care. This time, the PT, Deb was exceptional in her care and gave very good information to both the patient and their family. Kaylee the CNA was also awesome!Mary Ann C.
I had your agency in February, 2018. My physical therapist was Brian. He was wonderful. So helpful and related to me as an older woman. Thank you for your other caring personnel. Keep up the good service to the community!Mary
Each clinician really listened to my questions and gave me a clear answer or offered very practical ideas for around and in the house. I feel stronger now and I know my health has improved. Pam and Deb were especially good at giving me encouragement and listening.Mary Lee June
SummitWest Care was developed as a non-profit, free-standing agency in 2006. Our community recognized the need for providing quality care in the home. SummitWest Care was designed to serve people in need of care in their home. Since our inception, SummitWest Care has served several thousand clients and families in Mesa County and we have had the support and donations from organizations such as St. Mary's Hospital, Rocky Mountain Health Plans and Hilltop. Because of our strong staff expertise and leadership and the profound belief that people deserve to heal at home, we have received several awards for quality and excellence in home health care service. Our clinicians have a long history of collaboration with area physicians to help their clients get well after premature birth, complicated orthopedic surgeries and chronic illnesses. We value education and staying on the cutting edge of procedures and techniques to support our clinicians to be aware and responsive to your health care needs.
