My name is Beth Walrich and I am pleased to introduce myself as the Director of the Griswold Home Care offices in Nashville, TN. I grew up in Atlanta, GA but now call Nashville my home. A lot of the foundation of who I am has been greatly influenced and inspired by my grandmother, who was a very generous and caring woman. She was my biggest fan, as I was hers. My favorite memories, from childhood to adulthood, include my grandmother. When she became ill my family all banded together to take care of her. As her illness progressed, her needs for help increased. I come from a large family and we still did not have enough people to cover all the time needed, but everyone was determined to keep her at home. Having that experience was an eye opener for me on what a family goes through to take care of a love one.
I was drawn to Griswold Home Care’s philosophy of referring caregivers to help people to take care of their loved ones. By now working with the organization, I feel I am continuing to honor my grandmother’s memory. I opened the first Griswold Home Care office in Tennessee in 2001. Since, I have helped thousands of families in the Nashville area. My husband, Tim Walrich, joined me in running the business in 2008 and recently we each became Certified Senior Advisors (CSA’s). This designation provides additional knowledge and resources for us to better assist our clients and their families when facing the difficult challenge of arranging care for a loved one.
