The premier non-medical home care franchise excels at compassionate care for those who need it most.
As a Griswold franchisee, you’ll provide a range of non-medical, in-home services. Depending on your market, you might specialize in one or more of these, or you might find there is a need for all of these services.
Here’s an outline of the typical services our franchise owners provide:
For families who live far away from their parents and need a reliable, trustworthy person in the home on an ongoing basis or once in a while, a Griswold caregiver is the next best thing to family. Our caregivers provide much-needed company by listening, chatting, and reminiscing.
Companion care is one of the most popular home care services for seniors and other adults with disabilities, illnesses, or injuries. A caregiver keeps loved ones socially engaged at home and can accompany them to visit friends or family, to social events, or to visit local sites. Caregivers an also provide safety and supervision to individuals who may require additional oversight due to Alzheimer’s or dementia. Outings don’t have to end because health complications make leaving the house difficult. Companion care gives our clients someone to socialize with and gives their families someone to rely on.
With age or injury, daily household activities and chores can become difficult. When families choose homemaking services, they’re choosing someone to take care of the little things—a tidy home, freshly prepared meals, no obstacles in the hallways to trip over, and clean clothes to wear. Homemaking services can be a full-time role, or it can be a few hours a week as added support for family caregivers. Time with family is precious, and by choosing Griswold, families can focus on being present with their loved ones, not spending precious time doing chores!
Live-in and overnight care
Needing more support doesn’t have to mean leaving home. Children helping mom or dad in their home often reach a point where they need more ongoing assistance, or they need someone to stay in a home with a family member during recovery after surgery. Live-in home care means that a caregiver lives in the home for as long as needed to help with anything from spontaneous needs to planned outings for as long as is needed.
Personal care and hygiene services help seniors and other adults with disabilities, illnesses, or injuries with daily activities they once did for themselves, including, but not limited to, bathing, dressing, and brushing their teeth. These personal care services can vary widely depending on clients’ needs, but the goal is to keep clients clean, comfortable, and looking their best.
Palliative care is any type of care that focuses on making a sick person feel comfortable. Sometimes known as end-of-life care, hospice care is a type of palliative care for individuals who are in the last stages of a serious illness and have decided not to pursue curative treatments. In general, the purpose of hospice care centers on symptom relief, comfort, and emotional and spiritual support.
Our approach to supporting hospice and palliative care at home or at a facility is simple: help families spend quality time together by matching them with the perfect caregiver for their situation. A caregiver can help with day-to-day activities like bathing or dressing, or provide support, comfort, and companionship for the care recipient and their family.
Respite care for seniors, adults with disabilities, and those with illness, injuries, and other special needs can offer family caregivers a chance to take a break from their situation, allowing family members to sleep easy and recharge emotionally and physically to avoid burnout. Respite care can include things like light housekeeping, personal care such as bathing or dressing, travel accompaniment to appointments, grocery shopping, errands, and more.
