This week we met with the families of two new clients whose reaction to our services was such an affirmation of our “why” – our reason for doing what we do.
The first reaction was a client’s excitement at regaining his freedom to participate in a hobby he enjoys. One of our joys in the work we do is being a part of helping clients do the things they want to do and live in the places they want to live, even when assistance is now needed to make that possible.
Our caregivers allow clients to enjoy coffee on their own porches with the view they selected their home for, eat the breakfast they’re accustomed to when no longer able to cook, meet friends for lunch when no longer able to drive, stay in their homes where there is room for family to come and stay, attend church, go shopping and go for afternoon drives. Our caregivers give clients the freedom to safely do the things they want to do.
The second reaction came from a client’s family member. She shed tears of relief at the end of our visit, knowing that someone would be there for her father when she couldn’t be. While the care we provide is for the clients, it is often also a gift to family members, many of whom live too far away to provide the help and assistance they wish they could provide. Whether family caregivers live near or far, it is our joy to be a part of bringing them relief by partnering with them. We work together to provide the needed care to help their loved ones remain safe at home.
Griswold Home Care of Wilmington exists to bring stability and calm to our clients and family members. These things are so needed when there is a loss of freedom to drive, a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia, a disease or injury that causes physical limitations, a history of falls, the death of a spouse, or a family caregiver who is overwhelmed with the tasks of caregiving.
Thank you, Wilmington, for the privilege to be a part of your lives and homes as we live out our why each day. And thanks, as always to the amazing caregivers who make that possible.
