Hello, I’m Gary Hawkins, the owner and operator of your local Griswold Home Care office.

I graduated from the University of Florida with a Bachelors Degree in Business Administration. Before joining the Griswold Home Care franchise family, I worked as a Residential Services Director for Prospectus Associates Inc., where I managed residential programs for the disabled. I supervised over 150 staff, served as the chairperson for the Speakers Bureau, Secretary of the Behavior Management Committee and primary fundraiser for the Development Committee.

Since 1991 I have independently owned and operated Griswold Home Care formerly known as Special Care and Griswold Special Care. I am responsible my organization that has referred caregivers who have served over 5,000 families in need of care in Berks, Lebanon and SchuylkillCounties.

I was a Mental Health Delegate for Berks County between 1983 to 2003, founded Supportive Concepts For Families, Inc., a local non-profit human services organization where I served as CEO and Board Chairman from 1993 to 2000.

Living and working in Berks County allows me to give back to the community. My community services include co-founding the Circle of Life Coalition, an organization dedicated to educating the community and professionals on all aspects of end of life care and Boomer Generation Radio, a 24 hour online radio station broadcasting information, news and events for baby boomers nationwide.

I currently serve as the Executive Director of the Greater Reading Mental Health Alliance, which is dedicated to wellness in mental health through education, advocacy and support. I’ve served on a number of Boards including the Arthritis Foundation, Berks Encore, ALS Association, Mental Health Association, Greater Health Mental Health Alliance, and the Tri-County Community Network.

I am dedicated to the art of caring for others. Together with my experienced and dedicated Berks County office staff, I feel confident that we have caregivers to solve your family’s need for non-medical home care.
