Quality, Affordable In-Home Care In Your Community
Griswold Home Care of Camden County began in 1988 as part of the Burlington/Camden territory. Ten years later, in 1998, it was split out and Joe and Maria Bachich stepped in and transformed and invigorated the territory. Joe and Maria knew from experience what the senior care community needed and worked fast to build a team of professional caregivers and staff who lived with the same passion of providing home care for the ill and elderly.
Focusing on the solid foundation of Griswold Home Care founder Jean Griswold’s vision, providing the best home caregivers to seniors and families at affordable rates, the office has grown to one of the company’s top performers. In 2001, our operations manager, Kathy Mason, came on board. Her compassion, empathy, and love of the senior care community played a key role in the overall success of the office.
Kathy Mason: Regional Manager
Kathy’s passion for home care stemmed from the passing of a dear aunt when she was a new mom. Her aunt was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer and her wish was to be in her home with her beloved poodles until she passed. This was almost 40 years ago when home care was a very new concept. Kathy felt helpless, unable to help her with her request. Kathy came to Griswold Home Care in 2001 with a mission to help anyone with the desire to remain in their home. It has been her absolute pleasure to be a part of this company.
“Every day we are given the gift of helping those in need. This is not a job, it’s a passion.”
Kim Wagner: Manager
Kim’s story began before she even started working at Griswold Home Care. She needed live-in care for a family member, and Griswold Home Care in Camden County was recommended to her. Kim set up the care and was so impressed with the professionalism of the office staff and caregivers that when a care coordinator position was posted, she applied and was hired. Kim left her full-time job of 15 years to work with GHC and has loved every minute of it. Kim has 23 years of experience in the healthcare industry and is happy to answer any questions you may have.
“It is very rewarding to know how much of a difference we make in a client’s life, whether it’s finding them the perfect caregiver for their situation or providing them with comfort and quality of life during their most difficult times.”

“Working for Griswold Home Care for the past 16+ years has been amazing for several reasons: the staff always works as a team; it’s great to be part of such an upbeat, lively group of women; and I know I will get to work with and meet caring people on a daily basis. At Griswold Home Care we all strive to get the utmost perfect fit for both our clients and caregivers and that is very important to me.”
