Information About COVID-19

Griswold Home Care | COVID-19

First, we want to express our sympathy and condolences to all who have been personally affected by this devastating virus. We are hurting with you, and for the many more who will suffer before COVID-19 is no longer a threat. This moment in time is difficult, and our best and most effective hope is the vaccine.

Griswold Home Care franchises are independently owned and operated, and as such, local policies may vary.* While vaccinations will not be mandatory for Griswold Home Care employees due to personal or religious beliefs, we strongly encourage everyone to voluntarily get vaccinated. We support the science behind vaccines and believe that the more people who get vaccinated, the faster the virus will be eradicated.

Our CEO, Michael Slupecki, and members of the leadership team have been fully vaccinated. We urge our employees and their families, as well as our clients and their families, to join us in getting vaccinated. Should Griswold Home Care find itself in a position to support the proliferation of vaccinations within our communities, we will do so. If we can help alleviate fears or dispel inaccuracies regarding the vaccine, we will do so. Together we can beat this virus, but we all must do our part to put COVID-19 behind us, and that means being vaccinated.

We are committed to maintaining a safe and healthy workplace and are taking steps to protect you, your coworkers, and your families from contracting and spreading the COVID-19 virus. If exposure does occur, we follow the CDC guidelines for the quarantine and isolation procedures. We have recommended protocols in place for how to help keep everyone protected including the use of personal protective equipment (PPE), disinfecting surfaces, and increased hand-sanitizing protocols.

We are closely monitoring information and guidance provided by the CDC as well as each state’s regulations.

*Griswold Home Care franchises are independently owned and operated; therefore, various policies regarding vaccination will be implemented at the local level in accordance with the franchise owner’s direction. Policies will also be influenced by Federal and State laws. Thank you.

About Jean Griswold

Our founder, Jean Griswold, was a care professional who became a visionary entrepreneur when she started the first non-medical home care franchise in the United States while running her own home care business.

Jean started at her dining room table in 1982 in suburban Philadelphia. Her husband, Minister and Doctor Lincoln Griswold, informed her that an elderly woman in their parish had died through the complications associated with malnutrition and dehydration because she had no support system to care for her. Jean was deeply saddened by what she felt was an easily preventable tragedy. She was driven to act.

Jean Griswold was an extraordinary leader. She was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1967 at the age of 36 but continued to work actively in her office until she was 79. She published a book, “Fears of the Elderly” in 2013.

Jean was born in New York City. She received a bachelor’s degree in economics and business from Douglass College and a master’s degree in personnel and guidance from Rutgers University. She received an honorary doctorate from Holy Family University in 2006. From 2003 to 2004 she was Entrepreneur in Residence at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. She won numerous awards, including the Spirit of Philadelphia Award, the Working Woman’s 2001 Entrepreneur of the Year honor, and the 2002 MS National Achievement Award of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

Jean passed away on January 28th, 2017 at the age of 86. She was an inspirational woman and entrepreneur, and despite her passing, her values live on in Griswold Home Care today.
