Herm and Mary Carter Eick (pronounced as “ike”) own and operate Griswold Home Care serving Seminole and a large portion of Orange Counties. They each possess long-held, special affinities for the elderly, the disabled, and are active members of the community they live in. Herm and Mary Carter also have strong family ties to military service members and a desire to provide care to veterans in need. They’ve been blessed with family member longevity and therefore have endless anecdotes and memories about treasured times spent with great grandparents, grandparents, parents, aunts, and uncles. Consequently, though, they are aware of many of the challenges facing seniors.
Mary Carter (“MC”) is a particularly caring individual. A life-long Orlando resident, she passionate about her community and the people that comprise it. She was a member of the Junior League of Greater Orlando for 13 years holding various leadership positions. She worked on developing community programs and chaired fundraisers to benefit those programs. MC also participated in the Leadership Orlando initiative, sponsored by the Orlando Chamber of Commerce.
From an early age Herm had exposure to elder/senior care through his RN mother’s private duty and nursing home assignments. In early adulthood Herm learned first-hand the impact of in-home care as his parents fostered three of their parents (Herm’s grandparents). The honor and respect provided to those elders, along with the obvious benefits of their in-home care, made a lasting impression.
Herm and MC chose to leave their respective 25+ year business careers for the express purpose of establishing their own business and specifically one that would make a difference in other peoples’ lives! Following extensive research, Griswold Home Care clearly stood above all others. Both were touched by THE JEAN GRISWOLD STORY and embraced her notion of referring caregivers who PROVIDE THE BEST POSSIBLE CARE IN THE MOST AFFORDABLE WAY TO SUPPORT FAMILY AND LOVED ONES. The Eick’s made it a point to incorporate their professional expertise into their in-home care business, as evidenced by their emphasis on proven best-in-class practices, building a sense of team purpose and clearly defined objectives, incorporating quality principles, and focusing on customer service and client satisfaction.
It’s a fact that the issue of care options and affordability are increasingly under discussion – certainly so in MC’s and Herm’s families where all four of their parents are approaching 80! MC and Herm are genuinely excited to be part of the solution for the issues facing the generations that preceded them! They believe strongly that everyone in need deserves quality care in their own homes whenever possible, as well as the utmost dignity and respect in the delivery of that care!
All team members are honored to be a part of Griswold Home Care with its wonderful nationwide reputation. They’re excited to continue the tradition in the greater Orlando area!
