I know there's an old thread back in '08 talking about retiring in Grand Junction, saying that retiring in Grand Junction might be okay if it's booming, but if there's a bust retirees won't be able to find needed services. There also was talk about it being hard to find a doctor if you are on Medicare.

So, how is the situation for retirees in Grand Junction these days ? My biggest concern is definitely the isolation from any other cities, and lack of services (especially medical care), and difficulty finding a doctor if you are on Medicare. Also how's the availability of home health aides to hire in Grand Junction ?

Okay I'm not a retiree and I can't speak to your concerns about Medicare and such. However I do work in the health care industry here and from my perspective as a young person it seems fine. There's a lot of retired people in Grand Junction, I haven't heard complaints. Nor have I encountered any problem finding needed services during this economic crisis. Again, speaking as a young person.

Supposedly Grand Junctions Health care is being used as the model for the nation and the huge expansion to St Mary's hospital is complete. My wife is a nurse and I would imagine that you would not have any problems with finding a doctor or obtaining home health.
