Our Home Care Services
Caregivers Dedicated to the Health & Happiness of Our Clients
At Griswold Home Care, we offer a wide variety of services to accommodate
the unique needs of our clients. For over 40 years, we have been assisting
the elderly, adults with disabilities, and those recovering from injuries
and illnesses remain comfortable at home by providing them the helping
hand they need. Some of our clients are simply 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 family’s needs and then we will personalize a care plan that
accommodates them all.
What Type of Home Care Do You Need?
Internal staff members from each office work with you to understand your
needs so that we can recommend the home care services best for you or

Frequently Asked Questions About Home Care Services
Does having home care result in a loss of independence?
No. Our belief is 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 of our 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 your situation, our goal is to enable you with the best
possible outcome while being 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 CareAssure Screening System which includes a comprehensive
background check and screening for compassion, identity, integrity, and
competence. Less than 5% of all applicants meet our stringent screening
criteria. In fact, many Caregivers come from word of mouth referrals from
other happy clients.
How does Griswold attract the best caregivers?
Our Golden Rule states 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 mission. Similar
to any working professional, caregivers are attracted to organizations
that build trust and embody compassion, stability, and hope. We encourage
you to meet one of our local Directors and experience how they treat you
with as much compassion and dignity as they afford to each caregiver they provide.
