Welcome to the Overland Park office of Griswold Home Care, serving the Kansas City and surrounding areas. Griswold Home Care is one of the oldest national non-medical in-home care companies for seniors and disabled individuals in the United States. For more than thirty years Griswold Home Care has helped thousands of seniors live independently and age in place.
Griswold Home Care humbly began as a volunteer organization in a church, founded by a minister’s wife and staffed by the congregation. The mission of Griswold Home Care has always been to provide quality senior care and disability care.
Today, more than thirty years later, our vision remains the same and our principles have not changed. We believe in compassion, patience, open communication, and respect for our seniors, their family members, and our caregivers
Our experienced caregivers provide personal care, homemaking, and companionship care. No caregiver is placed without completing a rigorous, thorough screening process that includes both a phone and personal interview. Each candidate must also successfully pass a competency exam, a criminal background check and provide a minimum of four references.
If you are looking for hourly home care, live-in care, or overnight care for yourself or a loved one and would like to better understand what home care should be, please call Mary Ann, Marie or Julie. We are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
