Our caregivers perform a variety of tasks, ranging from bathing and dressing to driving, shopping and preparing meals.

Specializing in Cognitive Impairment and Dementia Care
Caring for someone with Alzheimer’s or dementia can be emotionally and physically draining. Even the most devoted family member will find, particularly as the disease progresses, that they can’t do it alone. Adding to the family caregiver’s stress is their wish to keep their loved one at home where everything is familiar, and their routine is relatively uninterrupted. At Griswold Home Care for Northern Virginia West, we’ve lost count of how many times we’ve made this possible for families.
Over the years of providing caregiving support for individuals with dementia, we’ve gained a deep understanding of how overwhelming this condition can be for those affected as well as their family members. We have made it a priority to educate and train all of our caregivers so that they have the skills and knowledge needed to best support the in home care needs of someone with mild cognitive impairment to late stage dementia. When you partner with Griswold Home Care for Northern Virginia West, you can step away from being a full-time caregiver and return to being a husband, wife, son or daughter to your loved one.
Always Adapting to Your Changing Needs
As we age, it is not uncommon to experience peaks and declines in health, mobility and cognitive status. Through assisting countless families throughout the years, we understand that care plans and caregiving schedules need to be adjusted accordingly. Someone who has care during the day may begin needing overnight assistance. An individual returning home from a rehab stay initially needs 8-12 hours of daily assistance but requires fewer hours as they regain strength and mobility. Whatever the reason, our staff will work with you to ensure that services are aligned with your current needs.
