In January of 1982, former geriatric counselor Jean Griswold received bitter news. Her husband, Presbyterian minister Dr. Lincoln Griswold informed her that an elderly woman in their parish had died because she could not find someone to help her with daily activities. Troubled by the news, Jean pressed for details. She learned that without support, the woman had stopped eating and drinking and eventually passed away from kidney failure. Jean was deeply saddened by what she felt was an easily preventable tragedy. She was driven to act.
Having been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 1969, Jean understood the importance of getting help in whatever capacity was necessary. Within days of receiving the news, she had assembled a group of competent, caring individuals to help other older parishioners stay safe and healthy in their homes. Armed with a master’s in education and degrees in business and economics, Jean realized she could extend her vision beyond her parish. Calling to check on elderly parishioners from her kitchen table became the seed of her life’s work: a national organization recognized as one of the oldest non-medical in-home care registries and one of the first home care services to find caregivers who could provide 24-hour care to disabled, elderly, or at-risk individuals.
