When Arthur and Frieda are asked “Why Home Care” their response is always “It’s a God thing.” A few weeks before taking early retirement from Bank of America in 2007, Arthur and Frieda sat down and took stock of their strengths, experiences and passions. Within a week they came across home care and elder care and knew it was the thing for them. Once they heard founder Jean Griswold’s story, the decision was very easy. Her faith, values, and commitment to referring hourly and live-in caregivers to provide the best possible senior care and disability care in the most affordable way were things that they admired and wanted to emulate.
The Tampa and Pasco Offices of Griswold Home Care exist to improve the lives of the clients we serve, the caregivers we refer, the office staff we employ, and the referral sources with whom we partner.
For the Clients We Serve and their families, we work to improve their lives by referring the best caregiver match appropriate to serve their needs and by providing them with resources within our referral network to address the needs we cannot.
For the Caregivers We Refer we work to improve their lives by matching them with clients that provide them with the best opportunity to use their experience and skills so they achieve their own personal mission.
For our Staff, we work to improve their lives by providing them with the best opportunity possible for them to fulfill their own personal mission.
And, for our Referral Partners, we work to improve their lives by providing referral opportunities where they can excel, by being quick to respond to their leads, and then providing service that reflects positively upon them
The Tampa and Pasco Team
We have two physical offices, one in central Pasco (Lutz) and one in West Central Hillsborough (Carrollwood). The staff supports clients in both counties.

Frieda’s dad was a Baptist minister for over 50 years. As a teenager, she had the opportunity to visit church members in their homes, hospitals, and nursing facilities with him. On a number of occasions she was asked to sit with members who had just been discharged from the hospital and needed some extra assistance while their family was working. Later, between her sophomore year in college and transferring to nursing school, she worked as a nursing assistant in a skilled facility. The joy she got out of working with those residents carried through nursing school where she was honored with the Barbara K. Morey Humanitarian Award for her work with her patients.
Over the next thirty years Frieda practiced her craft in three hospital settings from Virginia Beach to Richmond to Tampa. She served as a charge nurse in each hospital, helping patients and also managing the other RNs, LPNs, and CNAs on the floor. On the personal side, during the 1990s she watched her parents and their siblings care for her grandparent. She saw their dedication as caregivers and what a special blessing it was that her grandparent was able to age at home. These experiences make Frieda uniquely qualified to oversee our caregiver screening, referral coordination, and client satisfaction.
Arthur is responsible for the financial and marketing side of the business. He grew up surrounded by his grandparents and great grandparents and spent many a Sunday afternoon with them. He witnessed the aging process firsthand and was well-versed in it long before he and Frieda opened their office.
Arthur brings a degree in economics with a secondary focus on business and finance as well as thirty years in banking to the business. He has worked with physician practice groups, hospitals, and medical schools (one of his clients rolled out one of the first Assisted Living facilities in Virginia Beach). Arthur’s experience in this arena has provided him with an appreciation for the perspectives of health care providers and clients alike.
He has spent the last nine years building a vast network of resources in Hillsborough County and has gained the reputation as one of the “go to people” for information on senior issues. Two of the groups he works with are the SALT Council and Better Living for Seniors.
Arthur served as Vice Chairman of the SALT Council (Seniors and Law Enforcement Together), which was made up of representatives from area law enforcement, the West Central Area Agency on Aging (now called the Senior Connection Center) and various non-profit and other government entities supporting the senior community. The group discussed issues that affect senior citizens. Better Living for Seniors, of which Arthur is now the 2016-2017 Chairman, is focused on educating the member businesses and assisting them in their senior advocacy efforts.
Arthur has been a Caregiver Support Group Facilitator (with a focus on families dealing with Alzheimer’s) and is a Certified Senior Advisor (CSA). Arthur is among only a handful of Home Care business owners in Tampa who have achieved the CSA accreditation.
