Respite Care Service in Atlanta

In-Home Care Services

Respite care provides point of need, intermittent, or short-term care for family members who are in need of some time away. Allow our licensed and qualified caregivers in Atlanta to offer various home care options that work best for your unique situation. You can recover and recharge to be at optimum health to care for someone else. Studies show that a regular break in intense activity preserves a family caregiver’s ability to provide care longer, and be healthier themselves.

The need for in-home care for the elderly is growing rapidly as Baby Boomers approach their 80s, and as life expectancies continue to increase. Improved outcomes in healthcare add precious days, months and years to spend with our loved once, but also presents an added challenge as loved ones require more time and assistance to stay safe in their homes. Our in-home care services enable your loved ones to stay safe in their homes while giving you peace of mind that they are well-cared for. In-home care for your loved one has many benefits including reduced risk of hospitalization, improved quality of life, and peace of mind that your loved one is safe, even when you cannot be there.

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.
