Griswold Home Care
ConsumerAffairs Unaccredited Brand
My experience with this company was not a good one. We hired them to help care for my mom who was dealing with aging issues. Initially, they made everything sound just perfect and what we were looking for but then the care began. The caregiver that was sent out, did a lot of nothing but sitting on the couch with her headphones on and on her cellphone.
When I complained about this to the nurse, she assured me it would be addressed yet she left and just more of the same. The office staff just does a lot of poo pooing. They kill you with kindness and act like they understand where you are coming from and promise to send a better one. They did send a new one, but she had no clue on what to do for my mom. It was as if no one reviewed her case with her.
My mom has special needs When I asked her if anyone had reviewed what she needed done, she said no, that no one in that office knows what they are doing, that she just received a text to come to this address for this many hours. A TEXT! She stated that was how she received all of her clients. On top of it all, we had to pay the caregiver and office separately. That seems shady to me. I would not hire this company again!
Upon calling for a quote, I was speaking to Nancy ** (owner) who was extremely condescending. When explained that I was going to have my director call her if interested, she continued to speak over me, leaving me no option but to release our call. She immediately called my office back to tell me "If I were educated enough, she was trying to explain how the insurance worked." She made multiple references to my intelligence and threatened to report me to my director. Her unprofessional behavior is outrageous. She was so rude because she didn't get our business that she actually called to bash me. I would never recommend her company to anyone. I am flabbergasted at her behavior.
Just want to say I've been waiting for 3 weeks to get paid... I call everyday and there's always an excuse. I take care of clients in their home and have to be on time so my pay should be on time too. Please help me resolve this issue.
