Compassion. Listening. Excellent Referral Service.
This is the perspective that frames my daily activities. And these are the qualities you can expect from us when we refer in-home caregivers to you and your loved ones.
My name is Bob Kreek and I am the Director and Owner of the Scarsdale/Yonkers office of Griswold Home Care. I am also a Certified Senior Advisor (CSA) ®. Referring quality caregivers to our community is my highest priority. We understand the importance to you of staying in your home and we can refer caregivers who services are intended to keep you comfortable, safe and contented in your home.
Referral caregivers not only enrich the lives of those in their care, they also provide peace of mind for those closest to the person receiving care. (We use our CarePairing System to ensure compatibility.) Many of my life experiences have led me toward an appreciation of the importance of first class quality care. During my mother’s dementia, I came to fully understand just how important caregiving is because of the positive impact it had on both my mother and me. I also serve as a member of the Board of Directors for the Youth Shelter Program of Westchester, providing emotional and intellectual care and support services to troubled young men.
Listening and compassion go a long way toward easing burdens. While an Officer in United States Navy and as the Executive Director of the USO of Metropolitan New York, I dealt with issues of fear and vulnerability every day. These feelings are overwhelming but can be eased.
Caregivers seeking to be listed on our registry must first meet the most rigorous standards as set forth in our CareAssure Screening System, and only about 5% do meet those standards. We spend hours of face-to-face time exploring their ability to meet our requirements for home care and elder care.
I live and work in Bronxville and I am available to visit you or your loved ones anywhere in Lower Westchester within hours of your call.
I look forward to serving you!
Please thank the caregivers for all their efforts! My loved one was thrilled to get his garden going along with other tasks! I hope your registry style of business remains status quo. It is situations like this one that make such sense for both the client and caregiver getting what they want. nice doing business with you! Thank you again. – Anonymous
Bob thanks. Naturally mixed emotions. While with very sad we’re also happy for her and the ordeal is over. You did a phenomenal job in referring the very highest quality of aides..couldn’t have made it to the Finish line without them. To this day we get calls from the caregivers who were referred to us inquiring about all family members…really quality, caring, loving individuals. Thanks again for your great response and help with referral services when we needed it most- Ray
