Overnight & 24/7 Care

We Will Always Be There for You & Your Loved One

Griswold Home Care wants to be there for you whenever you need us, even if those needs include overnight assistance or 24/7 care. During your consultation with a care coordinator, we’ll discuss your needs and the kind of care you’re looking for. We’ll then suggest what we believe is the best care option for you or your loved one. In some cases, we may recommend more extensive care around the clock to make sure you or your loved one is always taken care of. Overnight and 24/7 care are two options we offer seniors and adults with injuries, illnesses, dementia or disabilities.

What Is Overnight Care?

Overnight care is about knowing someone is there to help if a loved one needs fluids, snacks, or help using the restroom. It’s perfect for people who have trouble sleeping through the night or tend to wake up disoriented.

With overnight care, a caregiver comes by the house to provide a few hours of care before bed and in the morning, and remains at the house throughout that period. In addition to providing homemaking and companionship services, overnight caregivers can provide several personal care services, including:

  • Bathing
  • Dressing
  • Haircare
  • Oral care
  • Nail care
  • Grooming
  • Skincare
  • General hygiene
  • Perineal care
  • Changing adult briefs
  • Repositioning if bed-bound
  • Supporting physical therapy exercise
  • Restroom assistance

What is 24/7 Care?

Needing more support doesn’t have to mean leaving home. You might be helping mom or dad in their home and things have reached a point where they need more constant assistance. Or maybe you or a family member are having surgery and would rather recover at home. 24/7 care means that you have the peace of mind that comes from knowing that your loved one is never alone.

If you are a family caregiver, you know that a poor night’s rest can affect health. 24/7 care is typically covered by a team of caregivers working 8 or 12-hour shifts to meet the needs of your loved one day and night.

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.
