Griswold Home Care for Silver Spring & Montgomery County North Change Location

How Can We Care for You?

At Griswold, care is personal, and we’ll work with you to create a care plan that best meets your needs, including companionship, homemaking, and personal care. We support those with certain conditions, illnesses, or injuries. We are proud to provide care for Veterans, Respite Care for those who need a break, and Around-the-Clock Care when the need for support is constant. We also embrace innovation, where technology meets home care in a safe and effective way.

Companionship

Connection and social engagement are vital for our physical health and emotional well-being. Interacting with others improves cognitive function and physical resiliency, reduces stress and depression, and creates a sense of belonging and purpose. Quite simply, companionship makes us healthier and happier. A Griswold Caregiver is a companion who helps with things like:

  • Shopping and errand assistance
  • Writing and sending cards, notes, and emails
  • Supporting hobbies and interests
  • Providing companionship at social events

Personal Care

Whether a loved one is experiencing the natural decline in mobility that comes with aging or has physical limitations from disabilities, illnesses, or injuries, their quality of life diminishes when they are unable to attend to their personal care. The ability to perform these tasks can make the difference between remaining at home or moving into a facility. Our Caregivers assist with essential personal care activities that help maintain clients’ dignity and self-esteem:

  • Toileting
  • Bathing
  • Oral care, skin care, and general hygiene
  • Hair care, grooming, and dressing

Homemaking

Our clients love where they live. They want to stay home as they age, recover from injuries, or manage illness. For those times when it becomes too hard to lift the laundry, mop the floor, or prepare a meal, Griswold Care Professionals are there. Our homemaking services, which can be full-time or just a few hours a week, include:

  • Running errands and grocery shopping
  • Meal planning and preparation
  • Light housekeeping, such as dishwashing, cleaning, organizing, and plant care
  • Laundry, linens, and bedmaking

Post Surgery & Rehabilitation Care Support

Many surgeries require post-surgical support, no matter your age. Your mobility can be impacted, and you may not be able to drive for a while. Outpatient surgery typically requires someone who will drive you to and from the appointment and stay at home with you for the first twenty-four hours after surgery. Rehabilitation can be more successfully managed with the right support. Griswold Caregivers will be there to help you with:

  • Transportation to and from surgery and medical appointments
  • Homemaking, companionship, and personal care
  • Active range-of-motion exercises
  • Medication reminders

Fall Prevention & Recovery Support

Aging increases the risk of falling, often when doing routine activities such as climbing stairs, getting into and out of a shower or bath, or even standing up from a seated position. Accepting that you or a loved one needs help with formerly independent activities may be hard. A Care Provider can help identify ways to avoid falls which significantly improves aging in place. Griswold can assist you with:

  • Placing night lights in hallways, bathrooms, and other dark areas
  • Adding non-slip mats in frequently used areas of the home
  • Homemaking, companionship, and personal care
  • Active range-of-motion exercises

Respite Care

Caring for a loved one can be overwhelming. You must selflessly provide daily support in addition to your own responsibilities, like your career, children, finances, household tasks, social engagements, and more. Being an effective Caregiver for others demands that you take care of yourself, too. When you need a break, Griswold is a trusted source of relief. Our Caregivers can provide:
  • Homemaking, companionship, and personal care
  • Specialized Care for those who need assistance due to certain conditions, illnesses, or injuries.
  • Around-the-clock care if you will be away for an extended period

24-Hour Care

24-hour care is an option when full-time care is desired, but you may not want someone else living in the home. In this case, you will have multiple Caregivers working in shifts to ensure someone is always there. These Care Professionals may provide:

  • Homemaking, companionship, and personal care
  • Care for those who need support due to certain conditions, illnesses, or injuries
