Quality, Affordable In-Home Care In Your Community
Hello, I am Kim Fortuna, owner of the Rockingham County office of Griswold Home Care. We provide aging adults and individuals battling chronic disease assistance with personal care, medication reminders and homemaking; along with companionship, safety supervision and transportation; allowing them to “Age in Place.”
Over the years I have been a caregiver to my grandparents as well as elderly neighbors. I experienced firsthand how Alzheimer’s slowly robbed my grandfather of his memories of emigrating from Greece to the Unites States as young child with his parents. Later I helped my grandmother through the struggles of recovering from a hip fracture at 92 years old. These personal experiences have given me a keen understanding of the challenges and fear my clients and their families face every day as their loved ones age.
In the spring of 2011, after leaving a management job in retail, I began searching for a new opportunity that would allow me to make a difference in my community as well as to fulfill my desire to own my own business. After months of research I found Griswold Home Care, and the journey ended. Griswold’s mission possesses the compassion for its communities and those whom they are privileged to care for, with a time proven business model.
Continuing my desire to support the members of my community, I also co-host an Alzheimer’s Café & Support Group: the event offers individuals diagnosed with Alzheimer’s a great social environment; as well as a support system for their loved ones that care for them. We love coming up with great activities to do at our café; everyone loves it when we have musical entertainment. Our Caregiver Support Group seems to grow every month; I have such admiration for the individuals that attend, especially with the challenges they face daily.
I feel honored that my clients and their families have chosen Griswold to assist them in their care. They all have so much wisdom and history to share; I love learning about my clients and their lives. I am proud to offer you and your loved one(s) exceptional home care. Please call us with any questions. We look forward to meeting you.
