NEWTON, N.C. (Nov. 1, 2016)—A business in Newton is working to ensure loved ones are able to stay in their homes as long as possible.
Grace Team Caregivers offers a wide range of private care services, from light housekeeping to 24/7 medical care.
Newton welcomed Grace Team Caregivers to the city during a ribbon cutting ceremony on Friday, Oct. 28.
The team includes Mary Gryder, Betty Houser, Tonya Tate and Stephanie Maddox. A total of 18 employees—including patient care providers, certified nursing assistants, certified medical technicians, and registered nurses—provide care at Grace Team Caregivers.
“We will do whatever it takes to keep a loved one at home,” Gryder said. She has been a caregiver for more than 50 years, and most of her staff has at least 20 years of experience.
The business started about four years ago with a single client, a woman who wanted to leave the nursing home and go home to die. Grace Team started providing in-home care for the woman, and she lived for another three years. Gryder said she and her team were so moved by the experience of caring for the woman that they decided to expand their operations.
Today, Grace Team Caregivers operates from their new offices at 21 East A Street. They provide services to clients in Catawba, Iredell, Lincoln and Alexander counties. Most clients are referred by family members, doctors, or Hospice. The team is looking into beginning a program dedicated to disabled military veterans.
“The services you’re providing are increasingly needed in our community,” Newton Mayor Anne P. Stedman said. “I welcome you to the city and thank you for caring for our neighbors in need.”
Photos from the ribbon cutting are available on the city's Facebook page.
