Nightingales Home Care is a locally owned and operated home care agency. We have been serving the home care needs of Grand Valley residents since 2005. We are invested in your care and in the overall quality of life in our community. The Grand Valley is our home as it is yours.
Janet Walker started Nightingales in 2005, her vision and efforts were instrumental in setting the standard for home care services here in the Grand Junction area. Martin Boyce and Jeremiah Miller acquired the company in 2018.
We believe people recover quicker, are the happiest, and thrive in a familiar environment—their own homes and if possible, everyone should have the option to “age in place.” Quality home care allows the client to stay in control of their own life. Their routines and home remain theirs while maintaining independence and consistent quality of life. Elderly clients, such as those experiencing dementia and macular degeneration, do better in their home environment to which they are more comfortable and familiar.
We strive to honor our clients’ wishes through excellent customer service and client care. Services are customized to each client through collaboration with the client and their family.
Good home care helps maintain a clean environment, provides good meals, companionship, and a sense of safety and security.
My wife Kathie and I have called the Grand Valley home since 2005. We are both Midwesterners by birth but most definitely are Coloradans by heart. We are both passionate about helping people improve their quality of life. Kathie served as the Connections and Prayer Pastor with Canyon View Vineyard Church for 10 years; she is now focused on developing a non-profit to assist people in times of need. My career prior to acquiring Nightingales was with Walmart, retiring after 35 years in management. My most recent role was as the Health and Wellness Director for the Western Slope based in Grand Junction. I supervised the Pharmacy and Optical operations for the company. My experience in the healthcare industry implores me to focus the efforts of our care on producing quality outcomes for our clients and their family. The transition from the corporate world to small business owners has been an exciting journey. Our interests outside work include time with our children/grandchildren, hiking, camping, pickleball, and living the outdoor lifestyle we are all blessed with by living on the Western Slope of Colorado. We truly are invested in your care and in the overall quality of life in our community. The Grand Valley is our home as it is yours.
