In Home Caregiving Services in Northern Virginia

Since 2014, Griswold Home Care for Northern Virginia West has been providing care in the home to seniors, disabled adults, and others who need a little extra help to remain in the place they call home. We help those with chronic illness, including Alzheimer’s and other dementias, and those returning home after surgery or a rehab stay. Our caregivers perform a variety of tasks, ranging from bathing and dressing to driving, shopping and preparing meals. Our services are flexible so that we can easily accommodate the unique needs of our clients. Whether you need hourly, overnight or around-the-clock care; at home, in an assisted living community or skilled nursing facility, we’re there for you when you need us most.

The Best Team to Serve You

If you are responsible for the care of an aging parent or disabled adult, you know firsthand how stressful it can be. You need a home care team you can trust and rely on to meet your loved one’s needs while giving you valuable peace of mind. All caregivers hired by Griswold Home Care for Northern Virginia West have completed a rigorous screening and selection process and bring valuable skills and compassion to everything they do. They are supported by a dedicated office staff and RN who are highly responsive to caregivers and clients alike. In fact, being responsive is one of our highest priorities. We answer our phones 24/7, 365 days a year and are equally accessible by email and text.

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.

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.
