About Our Caregivers
Griswold Home Care employs only qualified, experienced caregivers. Because of this, we find more time to work on adding value to and improving client satisfaction using a wide array of caregiver training courses.
We focus not only on the big details but also the small, yet important details that contribute to the overall big picture when it comes to providing one-on-one care. We take everything into consideration when we assign any caregiver to our clients, including personality traits, background, and more. Our caregivers are the face of our company. We firmly believe that the happier they are, the better they can work to improve our client’s lives and work as a team member, not just another employee.
Simply put, we have a very fundamental approach to how we build relationships with both our clients and their families and our caregivers. This is only part of the reason we pay some of the highest wages in our industry while charging the lowest fees in the region. In an industry where caregivers are often over-worked and under-paid, we strongly believe in taking care of our own, and that’s what makes us so unique. We call the characteristics that make us unique our Griswoldness.
