Hello, I am Bobby Crider, independent owner and operator of your local Griswold Home Care office of Columbus Bloomington South Indiana. My wife, Stacy, and I live on the southeast side of Indianapolis, Indiana and we’re both originally from Columbus, Indiana and graduated from Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana.
Growing up, my beloved grandmother ailed from Alzheimer’s disease. She had several bad falls, and then was placed into assisted living and subsequently hospice, where she quickly deteriorated and passed away. Beside my wife, I’ve also witnessed the extreme toll family caregiving has taken on her parents who care for Stacy’s elderly Grandmother in their home. They often have to take unpaid days off to care for her. While she is in need of ambulatory assistance, companionship, and help with other daily tasks, she does not otherwise need medical treatment.
My professional background is in the Information Technology field but philanthropically I have volunteered at the Columbus Regional Hospital emergency department and have taken part in medical and construction mission trips to Calnali, Mexico. Stacy graduated from the Indiana University School of Law and works locally as a social security and worker’s compensation attorney at one of Indiana’s largest and most respected social security law offices. My wife enjoys her career because she is able to help those who are in need of aid, and do not have anywhere else to turn.
I joined the Griswold Home Care franchise family because I’ve seen that nearly everybody has a story in which a home care service could be extraordinarily helpful. I feel that the non-medical home care industry is underutilized and not well-known. My goal is to refer caregivers who make such a helpful service available to my neighbors, the elderly and disabled members of my community, and their families.
