I explored several business opportunities before deciding to open my Griswold Home Care office in Hillsborough. It was the Griswold family’s sincere mission to provide simple, affordable, high quality care that drew me in. I fondly remember leaving my meeting with the Griswold family, wondering, will this esteemed company award me a franchise– not the other way around.

Perhaps the main reason to engage an elder care specialist is the safety of an older adult. Though many older adults reside with family caregivers, there are others who are alone in their homes. When a home care provider calls, anything that might be going wrong can be put to rights. Even if a family member is in the home and providing care, without a professional eye, that person might miss changes in the condition of the elderly patient.

I would like to share my experience with Griswold Home Care here in Vineland, New Jersey. I live in North Carolina and my mother’s care is very important to me. Some things have become a little difficult for her and I wanted her to have some help in caring for herself and her home. I was pleasantly surprised to find a home health care agency right here in Vineland. Beth, my mother’s caseworker was excellent. Very supportive and kept in constant contact with my mother to make sure her care was up to the standard that Griswold expects. That was not a problem as our home health care provided was an angel. On time, honest, and hard working. Plus, she always puts my mother’s safety first. I have met Arlene numerous times and find her to be one of the most caring people I have ever met. Griswold is flexible and will met the ever changing needs of their clients. Recently my mother was in the hospital and to my surprise both Beth and Arlene came by to check on her. Now that is going the extra mile. I highly recommend Griswold Home Care for any and all of your home health care needs. I’m sure you won’t be disappointed.

If you’ve always dreamed of retiring somewhere with both mountains and beaches, and not too far out from New York City, then New Jersey is a great state to consider.
