Bringing Health Care HomeCaring for an ill or older loved one can be stressful. Many caregivers need extra support. That's why Gila Regional Medical Center's (GRMC) Home Care Services' experienced caregivers are available to help care for your loved one in comfort and privacy.
Our services reach residents throughout Luna, Grant, Hidalgo, and southern Catron counties -- even in the most remote locations.
"Our caregivers give your loved one personal attention and compassionate care to help ease your mind," says John M. Currien, R.N., Director of Home Health/Hospice Services at GRMC. "Because we're part of a regional medical center, we can offer patients the most experienced caregivers and the lastest technology."

Homemaker services, such as meal preparation and light housekeeping
"Education is a priority," says Roxanne Katzmann, Clinical Coordinator of the Deming office in Luna County. "We teach caregiving skills to patients and their families."
Paying for Services
