Quality In-Home Care In Your Community


Hi, I’m Lorelei Elia, manager of your local Griswold Home Care office.  I worked as a medical assistant for twenty five years and enjoyed the interaction with my patients immensely. Also I had the privilege of being a caregiver for two very special people in my own family. My experiences in home care have shown me the incredibly moving bond that is created between client and caregiver.

Family acknowledgment of our home care services is our highest reward, but we’re also recognized state-wide. 93% of the families that we service are referred to us through prior or current home care clients! The Quinnipiac Chamber of Commerce chose us as the Athena Award winner and we have also been awarded by the Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s Associations. Atty. Gen. Richard Blumenthal successfully nominated us as the SBA Business of the Year. May 16th was pronounced Jean Griswold Day by the Legislature for our innovative home care and seniors’ advocacy.

I didn’t know where to turn. I couldn’t move there and they couldn’t move here, but I worried day and night. Your office has brought me so much peace. – A client’s daughter

Forever grateful …our caregiver extended Mom’s life. – Daughter, Joanna, San Francisco

We called in a panic and you leaped into action. – Daughter, Brenda, Cheshire
