Leslie Baruffi, regional manager for Griswold Home Care, was the guest speaker during the Hammonton Rotary Club’s weekly meeting Monday, Feb. 6 at Rocco’s Townhouse.
Griswold is a national caregiver agency helping people live independently in their home as a less expensive and more comfortable alternative to nursing home care.
Baruffi explained that Griswold’s network of non-medical home care providers offers customized personal care including homemaking and companionship with services that support every level of care from cooking, bathing, and transportation to medical appointments, to 24-hour live-in care supervised by a nurse.
Baruffi said statistically about 80 percent of people will need some form of assistance at the end of life, so when the time comes it’s important to turn to people you can trust. She stressed that Griswold is fully insured, is very particular about the people it hires and offers competitive hourly and daily rates.
Two helpful tips. Employers should be aware that home care services provide a benefit to the workforce because they reduce absenteeism among people taking care of loved ones in need. Also, it’s to the benefit of families to embrace the support available from hospice and palliative care and the Medicare-covered services they provide at the end of life. When the time comes, Griswold and other agencies work alongside these services to create the best possible environment at home.
