Our Overnight Home Care Services

Overnight care involves helping your loved one who has trouble sleeping or who tends to wake up disoriented.

With overnight care, you can expect the caregiver we refer to help your loved one a few hours before bed and in the morning and to remain at the house throughout that period.

They will provide several personal care services, from hygiene and dressing to restroom assistance and companionship.

Essentially, anything your loved one needs help with - we'll be right there to help.

Live-in Care - the Ins and Outs

Live-in care is more involved. It includes hiring a caregiver to live in your home 24/7 and help around the clock.

It is beneficial for assistance with personal care, medical, and/or emotional support needs. It’s an ideal option for ensuring that your loved one remains independent in their home, while receiving personalized care tailored to their specific needs. Our live in caregivers also offer services such as meal preparation, medication management, and errand running.

However, be aware that every caregiver is entitled to 8 hours of sleep, meaning if you need moment-to-moment care, you should hire 24-hour care so there is a caregiver on hand and awake at all times.

These caregivers typically work 8 hour shifts and rotate one by one so someone is always alert to help your loved one.

With live-in and overnight care, caregivers build meaningful relationships with individuals and families over time, which can improve overall well-being.

Your family is our family at Griswold Home Care for New Castle County. To enlist our live-in or overnight home care services, please call (302) 416-6758 or contact us online. We’re here to help.

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.
