Respite Care in Chandler, AZ

Giving Family Care Providers Much-Needed Time for Themselves

It takes kindness, understanding, and a lot of patience to care for an aging or disabled loved one. While the outside world may see this as obligatory, you know that this time spent with your elderly family member is a precious gift. Still, you deserve time to engage in self-care and give attention to other individuals who need it. This is why Griswold Home Care of Gilbert & Chandler offers families respite care services in Chandler, AZ, allowing you to recharge so that you don’t become overly exhausted or burned out.

Our compassionate Caregivers understand the emotional and physical toll caring for elderly individuals can take, and we’re here to provide some relief. You can customize your respite plan to fit your and your family’s lifestyle, whether you need a few hours during the day or overnight care.

The Benefits of Respite Services for the Entire Family

Caring for an aging loved one doesn’t just affect you; it affects the entire family. When you don’t have enough time for others, it can cause resentment, anger, hostility, and create internal turmoil. We want your family to thrive and become closer than ever, which is why we offer exceptional respite care services for families in Chandler.

Plus, the benefits of our respite plans include:

  • Getting much-needed time alone – Everyone needs time to themselves to do the things they love. Even if you just need to sit outside and enjoy the silence of nature, our respite plans can support you in doing that. To maintain your own physical, emotional, and mental health, you have to make time for yourself. Let our team assist you.
  • Rebuilding family bonds – Let’s face it, family caregivers can spend significant time with an elderly loved one and unintentionally ignore everyone else. This is by no fault of the family caregiver. Still, the situation can create strife within the family. Respite care is designed to help you take a break from one person and spend time with everyone else to rebuild those strong family ties.
  • Giving you peace of mind – If you’ve been caring for a family member for a long time, you may feel that you’re the only one who can provide adequate care. Our respite services provide you with a certified caregiver who will follow routines and tasks to a T, so you don’t have to worry about your senior loved one’s comfort or health.

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.
