Compassion. Listening. Safety.
These commitments frame our daily activities. And these are the qualities you can expect from us when we bring in-home caregivers to you and your loved ones.
My name is Bob Kreek, and I am the Director and Owner of the Scarsdale/Yonkers office of Griswold Home Care. I am also a Certified Senior Advisor (CSA) ®. Providing quality caregivers to our community is our highest priority. We understand the importance of being able to stay in your home, and we offer caregivers whose services will keep you comfortable, safe, and content in your home.
Caregivers not only enrich the lives of those in their care, they also provide peace of mind for those closest to the person receiving care (We use our CarePairing System to ensure compatibility). Many of my life experiences have led me toward an appreciation of the importance of first-class, quality care. During my mother’s dementia, I came to appreciate just how important caregiving is because of the positive impact it had on both my mother and our family. I also serve as a member of the Board of Directors for CLUSTER, a Yonkers-based nonprofit organization that provides counseling and homes to Yonkers residents in need.
Listening and compassion go a long way toward easing burdens. While an Officer in the United States Navy and as the Executive Director of the USO of Metropolitan New York, I dealt with issues of fear and vulnerability every day. These feelings are overwhelming but can be eased with patience and listening.
Caregivers seeking to be affiliated with us must first meet the most rigorous standards as set forth in our CareAssure Screening System, and only about 5% meet those standards. We spend hours of face-to-face time exploring each caregiver’s ability to meet our requirements for home care and elder care.
I live and work in Bronxville, and I am available to visit you or your loved ones anywhere in Lower Westchester within hours of your call.
I look forward to serving you!
