Quality Non-Medical In-Home Care In Your Community


Hi, I’m Wendy Spillane manager of your local Griswold Home Care office and part of the Griswold family for over 19 years. I have 6 children, aged 22 to 35; I cared for my Mom for 6 years and was responsible for a loved one with dementia.  I lived with a loved one who was blind until her recent passing. My daughter is an ICU nurse, and younger sister, a recreational therapist. I know about the struggles and joys of caring for others!  Life and work flow back and forth for me.

As family home care coordinator, I am never ceased to be astonished by the heart, integrity and competence of the caregivers we refer. I also understand the complexity of guiding families through this challenging world of non-medical in-home care, especially the benefits of insurances and bonding.

We revel in the gratitude of our home care clients.

Forever grateful …Regina extended Mom’s life. daughter. Joanna, San Francisco

Mary’s composure brought peace to Dad and my siblings. son Richard, Avon

My aunt was terrified of strangers. Now she can’t wait for Freda. niece Judy, West Hartford

We appreciate most our family letters but I’m also humbled that our home care referral team has many industry awards. Due to our innovative elder care and Atty. Gen. Richard Blumenthal’s nomination, the SBA declared us The Connecticut Business of the Year while the legislature declared May 16th as Jean Griswold Day for our approach to home care and advocacy. The Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s Associations, Former Governor Rell, and the Metro-Hartford Alliance have also honored us.
