Home Care Services

Caregivers Dedicated to the Health & Happiness for you or that of a loved one

At Griswold Home Care, we help accommodate the unique care needs of our clients. For nearly 40 years, we have been referring caregivers to assist the elderly, adults with disabilities, and those recovering from injuries and illnesses with various services. Caregivers help clients remain comfortable at home by providing them the helping hand they need. Some clients are only looking for companionship while others require more involved personal care services, live-in, or overnight services. Our office staff will sit down with you to discuss your needs and then connect you with a caregiver who can accommodate them all.

What Type of Home Care Do You Need?

Before starting services, a care coordinator will speak with you over the phone to understand your needs and then meet with you in person to recommend the home care services best suited to you or your loved one.

Non-medical home care services include:

  • Companion Care: Companion care makes sure your loved one has someone to talk to and interact with, and remains socialized.
  • Homemaking Care: Caregivers can assist with laundry, light housekeeping, and meal preparation.
  • Hospice Care: Caregivers offer support and companionship during the final stages of an illness or condition with the primary focus on comfort.
  • Overnight Care: A caregiver can be there to help through the night with things like getting ready for bed, using the bathroom at night, and getting up and dressed.
  • Live-In Care: For those who require more care, a caregiver can live in the home to provide services throughout the day and evening.
  • Personal Care: Helping loved ones with more intimate personal tasks like bathing, dressing, hygiene, and more. Caregivers are experienced in understanding the personal nature of these types of support services.
  • Respite Care: Short term care might be the perfect solution to preventing burnout as a family caregiver. Give yourself a break by bringing in a qualified care professional.

We understand that the needs of you or your loved one may change. Caregivers are happy to adjust the care plan to meet any new requirements. Give us a call to learn more.

Frequently Asked Questions About Home Care Services

Does having home care result in a loss of independence?

Not at all. We believe that independence is being in control of your decisions. Having home care services means being in control of your activities and retaining as much independence as each situation allows. Many clients just need a little help to continue living a safe and productive life, while some might be recovering from a fall, surgery, or other conditions. Regardless of the situation, our goal is to refer a caregiver that can enable the best possible outcomes while allowing you to remain in control of your care and daily decisions.

How can I trust a caregiver in my home?

Just like nurses and doctors, professional caregivers have chosen a career in compassionate care for those in need. Griswold Home Care implements a proprietary recruiting system, which includes but is not limited to, a comprehensive background check and screening for compassion, identity, integrity, and competence. Less than 5% of all applicants meet our stringent screening criteria. Many caregivers come from word of mouth referrals from other happy clients.

How does Griswold attract the best caregivers?

It starts with the premise that we will not refer a caregiver into your home that we would not welcome into our own home. This high bar was set by our founder in 1982 and is the backbone of our recruiting philosophy. Like any working professional, caregivers are attracted to organizations that build trust and embody compassion, stability, and promise. We encourage you to meet our office team to experience the compassion they demonstrate and the dignity protect, these same qualities that are shown to each caregiver that is referred into your home.

What if we don’t like our caregiver?

Contact our office and we will refer another caregiver as quickly as possible at no additional cost.

Will we have a choice in selecting the caregiver?

Yes, you play a very important role in selecting the professional caregiver you work with. Our office staff meets with each family to understand what unique skills, preferences and personality are desired in a caregiver. Feedback we receive from our satisfied clients indicates that a personality match is the #1 factor in a successful caregiver-client relationship, so we rely on client input. With your criteria in hand, we will make the right decision based on our experience.

What is the process of finding a caregiver?

We make the process of finding a caregiver very simple and prompt. Give us a call, and we will conduct a brief phone discussion to understand your needs. After the call, we will come to your home to do a needs assessment and to meet with whomever will be involved in selecting the appropriate caregiver and paying for care. Within 24 hours of the home visit, we can usually provide a professional caregiver to your home. Our team continuously screens caregivers beyond the current demand to give you quick access to the best caregivers in our community should the need arise or your needs change over time.
