Description of Griswold Home Care Mesquite Texas
Welcome to Griswold Home Care of Mesquite, Texas
Compassion Is Our Passion. Caring Is Our Profession.
Michael Gibson is the Owner and Director of the local Griswold Home Care Mesquite-Dallas office in Texas. During a successful 25 year career in senior management roles for a major big box retailer and a leader in the restaurant industry Michael would often imagine opening his own business. He made the conscious decision to leave the corporate world and fully research where he could go from there.
During the last few years Michel and his wife Lori had been dealing with the declining health of Lori’s father. Faced with unfamiliar options in the area of home care versus assisted facility living, they experienced first-hand the difference in a person’s attitude and demeanor when able to remain in the comfortable and familiar surroundings of their own home.
After finding Griswold Home Care and already knowing the impact this type of care can make to those in need Michael knew this was where he belonged. The mission and culture of the 30 year company is a perfect fit. Michael’s many years of customer relations makes him excited to build relationships with clients and their family to ensure their needs are met and provide the superior level of care and support the Griswold name is known for.
Michael would love the opportunity to talk to you in more detail on options for your loved one in the areas of personal care homemaking and companionship services as well as incidental transportation. "I am committed to providing the highest level of quality respect and care and take that responsibility very seriously."
Michael and Lori have been married for 26 years have a son and currently reside in the Mesquite community. Michael and Lori are both natives of Mesquite, Texas. Lori has served on a non-profit board in the community for over 3 years and our family is involved in several volunteer organizations. Michael is a Certified Senior Advisor (CSA). The office is licensed by the Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services and maintains all required professional and general liability insurance and bonds.
