Griswold’s Specialized Approach
Our proprietary screening process allows us to refer professional, experienced and proven caregivers. We focus on understanding what families look for in a non-medical in-home caregiver. The Griswold Golden Rule: We only refer caregivers we would trust in our own homes.
In addition to being matched with a carefully screened caregiver, each Griswold Home Care client has access to our experienced Coordinators. We can connect your family with local senior care resources while offering patience, understanding and knowledge throughout the entire process.
The need for home care is often unpredictable and immediate. We will meet you wherever you feel most comfortable to discuss your needs and desires and tell you about the unique Griswold model of home care referral services. We will then make every effort to place the right caregiver within 24 hours.
If your loved one needs the care of a senior housing community, you may still want your loved one to have a dedicated companion. Working with Griswold Home Care, your loved one can have the clinical access required from a senior housing community and the personalized companionship of a dedicated caregiver.
Before matching you with a carefully screened professional, we use your input to ensure that we refer a caregiver who has attributes which are important to you. Caregivers are referred based upon each client's personality, service needs and desired schedule.
When you need a higher level of care for more peace-of-mind, Griswold Home Care specializes in quality live-in care options that can place a caregiver in the home around the clock.
In home supportive services can be made available to seniors and disabled adults that align for one mission – to help those with physical or mental limitations to live in their own home. Some are free, some are paid by the government, non-profits, or other businesses depending on qualification and need.
Usually this service involves the family sourcing, screening, and hiring a caregiver directly. This process can be risky as the recruiting time is very resource intensive and opens more possibilities that you could hire an unqualified aide.
Also known as the Consumer Directed Model or a Registry, this model of home care puts families and clients in control of their care. You receive services from professional caregivers, often Home Health Aides (HHA) or Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs), who are in the profession of caregiving and have many years of experience. It is common for home care registries to refer caregivers who have 15-20 or more years of experience assisting with the non-medical needs of their clients. Most Griswold Home Care offices operate as a home care registry, although the model may vary by state. Contact your local office to discuss the local operating model.
A home health care agency is usually a medical variety of home care and provides mainly skilled care, physical therapy, and occupational therapy for home bound patients. Usually funded by Medicaid, this payment source will only pay for skilled care for a limited amount of time and the home health aides must follow a prescribed treatment of medical support as directed by a physician. Home health care may include home health care agencies, medical equipment suppliers, technology services, hospice, and therapeutic providers. Please keep in mind that if you opt for a non-medical in home care company that these services may not be covered under Medicaid.
