Hello, my name is Katherine Rozos Gravelle, independent owner and operator of your local Griswold Home Care office. I am originally from Brooklyn, New York where I attended the City University of New York. I now live in Maryland with my husband, Larry. I raised two wonderful sons.
I began my career within the health care industry doing morning rounds in a hospital. I interacted with patients who were not feeling well, or were in pain. I worked hard to bring a smile to every patient’s face. I later worked for a medical home care company and helped to place nurses and therapists in the home after a hospital or nursing home discharge. I quickly saw how effective our business was in helping clients transition back to their home safely. While most clients’ conditions improved rapidly once they were home, I also noticed that many clients fell into a black hole soon after professional care in their home ended. I had found my calling.
Larry and I opened our office in 1999, shortly after my Dad unexpectedly passed away. My previous career experience developed the skills that I needed to open my office, which refers caregivers to offer people continued assistance with non-medical activities of daily living so that they can stay independent and safe in their home. The Griswold philosophy aligned with my own, and owning my own home care office was the answer to my prayers.
We feel privileged to refer caregivers to help our clients remain independent as they age. Our referral service also offers families an added peace of mind knowing their loved one is safe. You have my family’s commitment to your family – I will refer caregivers to care for your loved ones as I would for my own Dad.
