You are part of a complex community and we know that caring is a two-way street. We share our company-wide home care experience of 30 years very actively with the health care and wider communities and we rely on other professionals to support us. We know what’s where, who’s who and where there’s financial support.
We offer you many sources of comfort through the journey of home care. For example: we’ll consult with your insurance; Yale’s Dr. Baker of the CT Fall Prevention Coalition trained our case coordinators; we initiated a program with the State (CCCI) to provide more affordable senior care. The Parkinson’s Association chose Griswold Home Care exclusively for respite care and we provide family relief home care services for the Alzheimer’s Association as well.
Families consider us the hub of skilled home care from the VNA and Hospice. Midstate Hospital; Apple Rehab, Farmington; Avery Heights, Hartford; Brittany Farms, New Britain; Salmon Brook, Glastonbury and Hughes Health & Rehab, West Hartford are a few of the facilities who trust us with their patients.
Our senior care clients live also in communities such as Cedar Mountain Commons, Newington; Wadsworth Glen, Middletown; Bradley Home & Pavilion; Meriden.
Our engagement with articles, events and workshops, some oriented to family members, some to professionals, brings relief to many. This year at the Capitol we sponsor a full day conference, Same Story Different Age: Sexuality, Money & Mental Health.
At the Annual Alzheimer’s Conference in Cromwell, people flock to us for the latest in home care research and our resources. We’re often a selected 90-minute workshop presenter where presentations are arduously vetted months in advance. The Fearless Caregiver Conference is another scene for our home care presentations. We are known for activities that support longevity and well–being for seniors, caregivers and baby boomers. We believe that the arts and healing go hand in hand.
At Elmwood Senior Center, West Hartford, “Nifty Fifties”, a performance and open dance that had everyone singing and laughing, was our production. We also gave logistical and financial support to the Center’s Greater Hartford Guide comparing all services and prices of registered home care companies.
We have deep respect for storytelling and writing. The Yale School of Nursing’s Creative Writing Awards are named for us. Stories at http://nursing.yale.edu/creative-writing-awards. We also match seniors with writers in Griswold Life Tales. Stories at http://www.homecare-ct.com/lifetales.html
Lesley Mills, Director of Griswold Home Care of West Hartford, had a 10-year radio show that aired baby boomer and senior issues. Lesley Mills speaks on Alzheimer’s; The Caregiving Relationship and more.
