When we are contacted by someone inquiring about care–for themselves, a spouse or other loved one for whom they have been caring–or by a concerned but far away family member or friend, our first job is to understand what kinds of tasks the person needs assistance with and what time periods would be the most helpful. Often the person is unsure of exactly what level of care is needed, and that is where our no-obligation Needs Assessment becomes a valuable planning tool, offered completely free of charge.
Whether in need of a little assistance or a lot, Griswold Home Care of the Pocono Mountains can help. We strive to be affordable, flexible, and responsive to the needs of all clients and situations. This commitment, combined with our dedication to client directed service allows for the creation of a personalized care proposal, a package of services that can include personal care, homemaking and companionship, all at rates that allow for the amount of care you need, not just the amount you can afford. Service can be as little as a few hours a day to 24 hour live-in care, or overnight shifts. We can also arrange for respite care, so the family caregiver can have a short term break, whether measured in hours or days to rest and recharge, or to tend to their own needs for self-care, which many neglect while caring for a loved one.
We are one of the few companies that publish our rates and can quote you specific costs up front, because our office rates are simple and all-inclusive, and do not vary with time of day or day of the week. That means if your biggest home care needs are evening or overnight hours, or weekend days, you can rest assured that you will not be asked to pay more for those shifts, unlike most home care companies. Likewise, our client driven model of care insures that you will not be asked to sign a contract for a specific number of weeks or months ahead of time, or asked to pay upfront of need for a minimum in order to get the help you need. When we say flexible, we really mean it!
The range of conditions for which professional caregivers can provide home care assistance and support include: the elderly and others wishing to avoid nursing home placement, adults who prefer to recover from accidents, surgery or illness at home, those with disabilities or chronic health issues such as Alzheimer’s and other dementias, neuromuscular conditions like ALS, MS or Parkinson’s, or those at risk for falls. Assisting with hands-on personal care such as bathing, continence care, dressing and grooming, as well as help with transferring and walking can provide increased safety and prevent falls, thereby preventing repeated hospitalizations. Help with simple homemaking tasks like meal preparation, light housekeeping and laundry, shopping and other errands as well as rides to medical appointments can greatly lengthen the time clients can remain healthfully at home, regardless of where they call home. Lastly, but importantly, simple companionship, including conversation, participation in hobbies or visits to friends, for example, can alleviate the loneliness and boredom from which many homebound individuals suffer.
