Post-Surgery Recovery & Rehab Care

Concierge-Style Care to Get You Back On Track

No matter your age, post-surgery routines usually require rehabilitation. In most cases, the success of your surgery depends heavily on your post-surgery recovery. Why not recover after your surgery in the comfort of your own home with one-on-one support? Griswold Home Care is proud to offer post-surgery recovery and rehabilitation care that will provide you the support you need to fully recover right where you desire.

Caregivers can help with things like:

  • Meal preparation
  • Incidental transportation
  • Accompaniment to doctor’s appointments, physical therapy appointments or a pharmacy to pick up much-needed prescriptions
  • Light duty housekeeping
  • Personal care
  • Ambulation and transfers, etc…

If your recovery limits mobility, caregivers can help you move safely, dress, bathe, or practice range-of-motion exercises as prescribed by a physical therapist. They’ll even remind you to take medications on time so your post-surgery at-home recovery goes as smoothly as possible. As you get stronger and more independent, you can change your hours and services until you’re back to 100%.

By Your Side After Your Surgery

Caregivers can aid you or your loved one with after-surgery home care needs for a variety of surgeries. Here are a few of many common surgery recoveries we can assist with:

  • Heart surgery home recovery
  • Hip replacement home care
  • Knee surgery home recovery

If you have a surgery or procedure that requires rehabilitation or recovery time at home, we would love to discuss your needs and the services we offer. For a complete list of Griswold Home Care’s post-surgery rehab home care services, see our list of home care services.

Recovering from surgery can be quite difficult. Many times, clients believe they can do more than they actually can after they get home from the hospital. Unfortunately, this can cause a set back the recovery process considerably and even put them back in the hospital. Griswold Home Care will be there to make sure you or your loved one rests so that you can be back on your feet as soon as possible.

About Jean Griswold

Our founder, Jean Griswold, was a care professional who became a visionary entrepreneur when she started the first non-medical home care franchise in the United States while running her own home care business.

Jean started at her dining room table in 1982 in suburban Philadelphia. Her husband, Minister and Doctor Lincoln Griswold, informed her that an elderly woman in their parish had died through the complications associated with malnutrition and dehydration because she had no support system to care for her. Jean was deeply saddened by what she felt was an easily preventable tragedy. She was driven to act.

Jean Griswold was an extraordinary leader. She was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1967 at the age of 36 but continued to work actively in her office until she was 79. She published a book, “Fears of the Elderly” in 2013.

Jean was born in New York City. She received a bachelor’s degree in economics and business from Douglass College and a master’s degree in personnel and guidance from Rutgers University. She received an honorary doctorate from Holy Family University in 2006. From 2003 to 2004 she was Entrepreneur in Residence at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. She won numerous awards, including the Spirit of Philadelphia Award, the Working Woman’s 2001 Entrepreneur of the Year honor, and the 2002 MS National Achievement Award of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

Jean passed away on January 28th, 2017 at the age of 86. She was an inspirational woman and entrepreneur, and despite her passing, her values live on in Griswold Home Care today.
