Both my mother and mother in-law now need Home Care. My mom lives in Little River and my mother in-law lives in Garden City. Can you handle both of them?
The short answer to your question Barry is yes. We cover From Little River to Georgetown. We can do this because we specifically hire Caregivers that live in or around the areas we serve. Please give us a call so we can speak further.
Nancy, Myrtle Beach
We are currently using Griswold to provide a Caregiver for my Mom. After reading the information from your website I am concerned I may be audited because I have not been collecting or paying payroll taxes. How likely am I to have a problem?
Nancy before I answer that question I want to make it perfectly clear that I am neither an Attorney nor an Accountant, however in my opinion you are at risk. When a person is paid for the work they do, payroll taxes in most cases are required to be collected and paid. The situation you have described leads me to believe that there are no payroll taxes being collected or paid and that is a serious problem.
I would also venture to guess that neither you or Griswold is covering the Caregiver in your mothers home with a Worker Compensation Policy either. The lack of proper insurance may be a more serious problem than payroll tax issue. Please seek further advice from a reputable Attorney and or Accountant.

How much do you pay the Caregiver that would be coming to my home to take care of my wife.
Roy we don't discuss this with anyone other than our employees. I can however, assure you that we pay our Caregiver significantly more than our competitors do. Our staff of Caregiver are among the best in the country and we appreciate each and everyone of them.
Alice, Little River
Your website says that your minimum shift is 3-hours. I want to know if I can have on of your Caregivers come to my house an hour and a half in the morning and hour an half around dinner time instead of one 3-hour shift.
Hi Alice, thanks for the question. Unfortunately we can not breakup our 3-hour shift. The reasoning being our Caregiver has to spend unpaid time to get to your home. If it takes her 15 minutes to get to your home and then 15 minutes to get home. She has spent 30 minutes commuting for an hour and a half of pay. This is not worth it to a Caregiver especially after taking into consideration the cost of gasoline. I hope you can understand it just not worth it. Perhaps we could schedule a one 3-hour shift every other day or twice a week.
