Elizabeth Firth, CSA and Director of the Griswold Home Care Chestnut Hill- Blue Bell office, realized her passion for elder care while she was working as a Personal Care Aide at an assisted living facility in college. Prior to joining Griswold Home Care, she worked in case management as a nutritionist, and has always wanted to be involved in businesses that center on helping others. Elizabeth’s favorite aspect of working in the home care industry is “giving families peace of mind in knowing that their family member is well-cared for.” She and her team of case coordinators and fully bonded and insured caregivers are committed to developing the right care plan for you and your family.
Scott Young (Assistant Executive Director) Scott was hired by founder Jean Griswold in 2000. He began his career as a case coordinator in the flagship office of Chestnut Hill. He’s a long-time resident of West Mt. Airy and a graduate of Central High School and Temple University. Scott has always been drawn toward services within the community and considers one of his strengths to be an “above and beyond” approach when it comes to his professional relationship with clients and family members. “Good communication is, in my mind, one of the most important keys to a happy and healthy client. I believe very passionately in the value of our services. There is a great responsibility in having a direct and positive impact on one’s quality of life. At the same time, my work is incredibly gratifying.”
Pamela D’Hurieux (Community Relations Coordinator) Pamela joined Griswold Home Care when a loved one developed Alzheimer’s. In her own words, “There is a place for non-medical in-home care. Sometimes families are so close, they can’t care for them. Sometimes it’s too emotionally draining.” Pamela says representing Griswold at community events is wonderful, because so many people knew Jean and Lincoln Griswold and always stop to tell their stories. She notes that “they left a deep impression in the community and this office really keeps that influence.”
Nichelle Strickland (Case Coordinator) Nichelle has worked in the Mental Health/Case Management field for 10 years. She has worked with the adolescent and adult population, first as an Intensive Case Manager in the New York area and relocated to Pennsylvania 8 years ago working as a Case Manager Supervisor for a non-profit agency. She has a real passion for helping others.
