  • “We found the people who were such a wonderful match for Mom and I’ve been able to have them consistently. Griswold supported the fact that I would like the same person consistently. I know now a caregiver is at home with Mom.”
    - Angelika
  • “It’s great to have an agency like Griswold that you can go to to help you with the things that you need. Pick up that phone and call and say, “I need help,” and Griswold say, “Okay, what can we do for you?”
    - Tony and Linda
  • “She always calls me when she has a day off or when she leaves. She always calls and I tell my friends, I said, “My aide calls me even when she’s not here.” They can’t believe that.”
    - Harriet
  • “What we liked about Griswold was the flexibility that they provide. They provide all kinds of service. They’re very respectful of our conditions. They help where we need them. They let us do what we want to do. They can do whatever we ask them.”
    - Leroy, Joyce & Stacey
  • “I'm truly grateful for the caregivers that helped us through the difficult time of our dad's passing. They provided excellent caregivers and covered the times we needed some rest. Everybody on their staff is easy to work with and understanding.”

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.
