My name is Mirza Donegan and I’m the Director of the Griswold Home Care of Aspen Hill-Wheaton here in Maryland. Prior to Griswold Home Care, I was the marketing director at the North Bethesda Transportation Center. I was first introduced to in-home care when a family member experienced signs of dementia and began to require home care. Through my loved one, I’ve seen the comfort that remaining in a friendly home environment can bring: having tea at home, reading the newspaper in the sunroom, and watching sports games. My appreciation for giving people the help they need to live in the place they love was further fueled after learning about our founder, Jean Griswold.
Jean Griswold, started Griswold Home Care after seeing the unmet needs of members of her church. The wife of a Presbyterian minister and living with Multiple Sclerosis herself, Jean founded the company on two principles; that quality care should be affordable and that professional caregivers should be highly respected and their profession should be elevated.
Griswold Home Care has helped families remain safe and independent at home since 1982 by referring professional caregivers who provide personal care, homemaking, and companionship services. We believe that everyone who wants to preserve their dignity by aging at home and receiving personalized attention should have access to exceptional home care at affordable prices with Griswold Home Care.
I believe that this first person experience and the passion in which this company was founded has given me extra insight into similar situations that many adults with aging parents find themselves in across the country. It’s my hope that I can use my experiences to refer the best possible caregivers to our clients.
