They provide care for my mother that allows me to do what I need to do to help me keep the house going. They free me up to work and do grocery shopping. They are very responsive and resourceful. They are also compassionate.

They clean up around the client's area, and they help do the dishes. They do the little things that take up time. They are able to give us the hours we need, even on short notice. The client is happy with the caregivers she has had to work with.

Yes, because I could see a big turn around with him and his situation. I have seen the biggest difference and he is doing a lot better. He wasn't eating and taking his meds and she helped him with all those things. He is back up and around but he does still need some help. I'm in Ohio and my brother lives in Delaware, and in the beginning everything seemed fine until recently. And a certain situation that I was in was confusing and the caregiver said she would call her back and she hasn't called her back in 3 weeks. And I had to go through great lengths to get in contact with my brother. And I haven't heard anything from my caregiver at all since then.

They bend over backwards to help them know that they understand what they are going through. I can't say enough about the care that they are providing. They make sure that they are safe.

It's made my life easier. It lets me do what I need to do. I've been working with them for four years. It's not perfect but they try very hard. I know they can come in a pinch.

They could have more interaction with him. We have had three different caregivers. Two of them are average, and they could be more interactive with the client.

They're here and they show up. I don't have to worry about them. We didn't have much contact with the office. They're dependable.

They can work with their aides and make sure they communicate when an aide will not be there. They are able to be fairly consistent with their aides.

I couldn't do it by myself. I like their presence and that they're there for my mother. I like the level of care that my mother is getting. It exceeded my expectations.

The caregiver helps me with my grocery shopping and takes me to all the stores. The caregiver is very accommodating and is a nice person to come and help me out.

The caregiver does not drive and there are a lot of times that it would help if she could. I have only had the one caregiver for my mother, and she has helped her health stay the same.

I can sleep normally when someone is here. I like working with one person as my primary contact. I'm pleased with the caregivers as well.

I couldn't have a life without the services and would have to take care of mom by myself. I just recommended them to somebody. The aides and staff are excellent and the scheduling is excellent. My contact at Griswold is great. They are privately owned and really care about their customers. They take their mission seriously.

The services are a tremendous help because it has helped take care of my husband. The four hours that they take care of him gives me time to do paperwork and other things straightened out. They fix lunch and dinner. The case manager quickly gets in touch with you when paperwork is done. The owner offered to do the interview safely distanced so that I wouldn't have to leave my husband.

I just do not think we need them here. They were nice and competent we just are not very keen on having them here.

It's gotten my mom out of the house because she can't drive anymore. They have a very good reliable person with my mom.

She is difficult to work with and tough to please. They are prompt and reliable, and they work well with me. If we have a challenge, they get right on it and the office is good and easy to work with.

They send in good people and make sure they are capable of performing the services you need. They are very friendly and you can talk to them if you have a problem.

It is expensive. I have good days and bad days, on bad days I know I can't do things for myself. I've complained about a couple of people, the caregivers.

The caregivers that I have don't do much with my dad. We had the same one for a while and she doesn't interact with him or engage him in conversation, and that is why I wanted someone to come out so he didn't feel lonely. My case manager has always been able to find me someone if the caregiver calls out.

Some caregivers are not good, she likes the caregivers that actually help her and are friendly. They change the caregivers often, some are good and some of poor.

It helps me to know that someone cares about my mom almost as much as I do. I told them it has been great, especially the person we have and she is God-sent.

We have been using Griswold Homecare for my mother since the beginning of November. The caregiver we have would help Mom use the facilities, bathe her if needed and actually does some light housekeeping. She also fixes her lunch. She helps monitor things for us, like she would take Mom's blood pressure for us. She also accompanies her to physical therapy. We basically have her do different things with my mother. Mom had stroke so we're trying to keep her mind going and doing different things to help her to get better. This caregiver is very good. I don't have any problem with her, other than we wish that she would be more forward thinking. Other than that, she's good to my mother. She takes good care of her. She's also pleasant, so it's working okay. This is the second person to come into the house from Griswold Homecare. The first lady was very good with Mom and I really like her. She was more a little more interactive with my mom, but she had a very thick accent and it was very hard to understand her. That was the only complaint I had about the first lady. Regarding the agency, they would call every once in awhile and make sure that we're getting everything that we had asked for and that everything is going okay. Overall, they're okay.

We have been fortunate and gotten a very caring, flexible live-in caregiver for our mother, who is bed-bound and does not speak due to the late stage of Alzheimer's disease. The aide has cared for mom almost a year through Griswold Home Care and we've been happy with the arrangement. When she went on vacation, they provided a substitute. Griswold's fee is one of the lowest in our area, although I'm not sure why the portion that pays for the office is so high. That's the one major complaint I have--the caregiver gets extra pay for holidays and so does the office--even though they don't work that day.
