Alternative Medicine

  1. Adventure CBD


Cannabidiol, a nonpsychoactive component of the cannabis plant, is touted as a remedy for many conditions, from skin conditions to seizures. Adventure CBD produces high-quality, CBD-infused creams, oils, concentrates and edibles for use by humans and pets.

It’s important for customers to patronize CBD stores that are able to answer their questions, Adventure CBD general manager Jake VanLandschoot said.

“Because of our educational background, we’re able to answer any of the 100 questions customers ask,” he said. “By the time they leave here, they have an understanding of what CBD really is.”

The store strives to provide excellent customer service and provide pure, effective products that combine “tinctures, lotions and rubs that have been around for 100 years” with 100 percent sun-grown hemp from one of Colorado’s largest grow facilities. | 844-374-2223

Home Health Agency

  1. Gentle Shepherd Home Care

Kathy Miller found that it was a daunting task to find good home care for her 97-year-old grandmother. Miller and her husband Scott also had to search for care for their parents as they got older.

“We got into this business because we are that family — adult children trying to work and take care of things, and then take care of your parents,” she said. “We take it personally.”

Gentle Shepherd Home Care provides qualified, vetted and trustworthy caregivers for seniors and the chronically ill.

“We’re not going to put anybody with their mom or their dad that we wouldn’t put with our own,” Miller said. “We love what we do, and it’s not just a business for us. It’s a mission and a calling.” | 719-359-8371

Retirement/ Assisted Living Community

  1. The Retreat at Sunny Vista

Sunny Vista traces its heritage to Sunnyrest, a tuberculosis sanatorium endowed by Marjorie Palmer Witt, daughter of Colorado Springs’ founder, Gen. William Palmer. When the threat of tuberculosis subsided, it became a nonprofit, long-term care facility for patients who couldn’t afford health care.

Today Sunny Vista offers independent living for older and disabled adults at The Villa, assisted living and memory care at The Retreat, and short-term rehabilitation and long-term health support at The Living Center.

One of the things that makes Sunny Vista so popular is its homelike atmosphere.

“Yes, we offer a full range of healthcare concierge services, but in the end it’s our caring staff and warm, comfortable setting that make spending time here such an energizing and uplifting experience,” its website states. | 719-377-6735
