Alexandria, VA – It’s important to maintain your integrity, and for many folks that means being able to live independently at home. Accordingly, the City of Alexandria recently awarded a multi-year contract to Griswold Home Care to help provide services to local seniors and adults with disabilities so that they can maintain a healthy lifestyle at home.
“Since the beginning, our mission has been to provide seniors and those with disabilities with the best care possible so they can lead fulfilling, healthy lives at home,” said Christine Friedberg, director of Griswold Home Care of Northern Virginia East. “We are honored to further our work with the City of Alexandria to help us deliver compassionate care to our neighbors who need it most.”
This contract is part of the city’s Homemaker Personal Care Services Program, which offers in-home assistance for low-income adults over the age of 60 and to residents with disabilities. The program allows the clients to be helped with light housekeeping, laundry, light meal preparation, and grocery shopping. Individual recipients must have a monthly income below $2,177, and a family of two must receive $2,847 per month to qualify.
Griswold Home Care has operated 24/7 in Northern Virginia for the last seven years, and the franchise serves more than 100,000 clients with approximately 200 locations in 30 states. The company, which was founded in 1982, participates in the city’s Meals on Wheels program, in addition to a number of other local initiatives.
