Hello, I am Bill Kohler, independent owner and operator of your local Griswold Home Care office. My wife, JoAnn, and I have called Carmel, Indiana home for the last 28 years. We also love to spend time in our vacation home on the Florida Gulf, north of Clearwater. We have two adult sons and four wonderful grandsons.
My family has witnessed the role and need for homecare firsthand. JoAnn’s mother was in need of care but was very resistant to having a stranger in her home. She eventually passed away alone in her home. This experience had a profound effect on our family. Unfortunately, neither JoAnn’s mother nor our family was able to experience the benefits of in-home care. This is why we are so committed to referring caregivers who make this beneficial service available to other families in need of help and care.
Most of my professional experience has been in business and operations management. While my career was advancing and I received good job offers, I turned them down to remain in the community that my wife and I love and to pursue a new challenge. Home care interested me because I see it as an underutilized and badly needed service. I joined the Griswold Home Care franchise family because I was drawn to the company with the “Golden Heart.” I am proud to refer caregivers to offer my neighbors in need a valuable service while also building long term equity, flexibility and control in my own business that I can one day pass on to my sons.
Christy Kohler is our Community Liaison. Christy comes to us from the banking industry and has been with this office since November of 2013. Christy and her husband Joe reside in Indianapolis with two of Bill and JoAnn’s four wonderful grandsons.
