Your Home Care Referral Team in Prince George County, Maryland
Hello, my name is Naomi Turner-Jarvis, independent owner and operator of your local Griswold Home Care office.
Growing up on the island of Antigua, I watched family members take care of elderly parents and family. Back then, I wondered how I could help.
A friend of mine had surgery and needed care in her home after surgery. She wasn’t able to find a company to provide the services that she needed to properly recuperate; she subsequently checked into a hotel. I began my quest to find a way to help other people who seek comfortable, dignified and safe care in their homes.
Thirteen years ago this search led me to Griswold Home Care, a company with a heart and sincere dedication to referring caregivers to provide non-medical home care to seniors, those with disabilities and the infirm to enable them to remain as independent as possible in the place they are most comfortable.
I remain a member of the Prince George’s Senior Provider Network (PGSPN), an organization which brings providers of senior services together. I am additionally a Certified Senior Advisor (CSA) who works hard to serve my neighbors in need in every way possible.
Companion Care Services: Companion care is one of the most popular senior home care services. A caregiver keeps your loved one socially engaged at home, and can accompany them to visit friends or family, to social events, or to visit local sites. Outings don’t have to end because health complications make leaving the house difficult. Companion care for seniors gives them someone to socialize with, and gives your family someone to rely on.
Homemaker Services: With age or injury, daily household activities and chores can become difficult for older adults. When you choose homemaker services, you’re choosing someone to take care of the little things — freshly prepared meals, no obstacles in the hallways to trip over, and clean clothes to wear. If you’re looking into homemaking services, help usually means an extra hand with daily tasks. Homemaker services for the elderly, seniors, and disabled adults can be a full-time role, or it can be a few hours a week as added support for family caregivers. Your time with your family is precious, and you shouldn’t have to spend it doing chores!
Palliative and Hospice in Home Care: Palliative care is any type of care that focuses on making a sick person feel comfortable, rather than curing the illness. Sometimes known as end of life care, hospice care is a type of palliative care for individuals who are in the last stages of a serious illness and have decided not to pursue curative treatments. In general, the purpose of hospice care centers on symptom relief, comfort, and emotional-spiritual support.
Live-In & Overnight Care Services: Needing more support doesn’t have to mean leaving home. You might be be helping mom or dad in their home and things have reached a point where they need more constant assistance. Or maybe you or a family member is having surgery and would rather recover at home. Live-in home care means that a caregiver lives in your home to help with anything from spontaneous needs to planned outings.
If you are a family caregiver, you know that a poor night’s rest can affect your health. Live-in caregivers are entitled to 8 hours of sleep, so you might choose 24-hour care if you need a caregiver to be awake at all times. 24-hour care means that several caregivers rotate shifts so that someone is always awake and alert to help your loved one.
Personal Care Services for Seniors, Elderly & Disabled Adults: Personal care and hygiene services help seniors and disabled adults with daily activities they once did for themselves, including, but not limited to bathing or brushing their teeth. These in home services can vary widely depending on your needs, but the goal is to keep clients clean, comfortable, and looking their best.
Respite Care for Caregivers: Respite care for the elderly, seniors, disabled adults, and those with special needs can offer caregivers a chance to take a break from their situation. It’s meant to allow you to recharge emotionally and physically to avoid burnout. Respite care can include things like light housekeeping, personal care such as bathing or dressing, travel accompaniment to appointments, grocery shopping, errands, and more.
