Griswold Home Care Review

Everyone experiences threats to their independence as they get older, whether those threats come through injury, illness, or the general loss of function that accompanies aging. Many people respond by giving up their independence and moving into assisted living, but more and more seniors are choosing to age in place—to remain in their homes and look for ways to preserve their independence. That’s where Griswold Home Care comes in: like other home care agencies, it links clients with home caregivers and other professionals who can help with all the things necessary to keep seniors healthy and improve their quality of life.

“The Griswold team has been a fantastic partner in helping to care for our mother. When we first approached them about four years ago, we were just looking for someone to keep Mom entertained–go shopping, out to lunch, etc. As Mom has aged, the care she has needed and been provided by the AMAZING Griswold caregivers has evolved, too. The competent, caring office staff, the seamless billing process, and the high quality caregivers have all combined to make this service worth every penny.”

“They were absolutely excellent. They came when they were supposed to. They stayed and give us extra help as we needed. They’re very professional. I had no complaints. I will use them again and I had referred them to a couple of people already.”

Atlanta, GA (via Caring.com)

“I was most grateful for the owners and the caregivers from Griswold Home Care during the time I desperately needed help with caring for my mother—as she wished to live out her time at her own home. The administration and the caregivers were very professional and compassionate towards both my mother and myself.”
