Home Care Reviews for Griswold Home Care Fairfield County: Generations of Care

Griswold Home Care is taking care of my father-in-law. It has been wonderful. They are there for any questions I have, and any needs we have, they're right there to help us acquire whatever help we need or equipment we need. My father-in-law has a live-in aide. She is there 24/7. She gets him up washed and dressed, she feeds him, she prepares his meals, and she is a companion. She also keeps the house immaculate.

We are happy with Griswold Home Care. They are very caring. They always send the good girls here. They're very nice and very helpful. We have been working with them for seven years now. They mostly help with bathing, they help with breakfast and lunch, they help shop, they help with cleaning, and they give me a bath. They're very responsible.

We are working with Griswold Home Care. They're very good. I'm very happy with them. They help me with everything. They do daily chores, they do personal care, and they prepare my food and my clothing. I have no problem at all. The caregiver is very polite. She is wonderful.

I think Griswold is the best. They have been so good to me and have always sent me caregivers who have been angels The service is great and they are always here for me especially when I got very sick. So far everyone that I have had has been great. They do the cleaning and make me my meals, and go grocery shopping for me.

About Griswold Home Care Fairfield County: Generations of Care

Griswold Home Care is the most experienced non-medical home care franchise in the United States. Founded in 1982 by Jean Griswold, a caretaker who suffered from Multiple Sclerosis, Jean understood the importance of providing holistic support services that enable the dignity and joy of living in the place one loves to call home.

Continuing Griswold’s legacy, Cathy Howard and her mom, Frances Malaforte, introduced Griswold Home Care to Fairfield County in 1991 as an outgrowth of their need to find quality care for Cathy’s grandfather. A hospice volunteer, board member of the Stratford Visiting Nurse Association for many years and current board member of the Jean Griswold Foundation, for Cathy, eldercare is a passion. Having grown up in the business, its not surprising that her two daughters, Kelly Coy and Jessica Howard, also share this strong commitment to helping the elderly live with dignity in the place they love to call home as they lead operations for the Fairfield County.

The unique care plan drives our recruiting and training protocol to ensure an optimal match and proactive quality approach to care and communication.
