When a Loved One Needs Companion Care Services, What to Look for

After agreeing to hire more support, a loved one could have anxiety regarding the future of their freedom. But we want you to know that our goal is to enhance overall quality of life, not to reduce autonomy.

There are a number of symptoms you can look for to determine whether you should give your older family member greater support.

There are various indicators you may look for that may help you decide whether to provide more assistance for your elderly family member:

  • Your loved one frequently feels disoriented or lightheaded.
  • Your loved one has trouble carrying out ordinary tasks, such as cooking meals.
  • Your loved one recently left the hospital and returned.
  • If you don't live close enough to your family member to drive there to check on them, companion care may be acceptable for you.

Our Caregivers in Hartford are ready to support your loved one today. Call (860) 516-0618 or contact us online to find compassionate companion care near you.

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.
