The Jean Griswold Foundation
Supporting Those Who Support Others
Caregivers are the backbone of a home care company. Without the dedication, compassion, and hard work of a caregiver, our purpose of giving people the help they need to live in the place they love would be impossible to achieve. Through all hardships, Caregivers answer the call to provide care to our loved ones.
We recognize the critical role of our caregivers, and that's why Griswold Home Care is transitioning the Jean Griswold Foundation to a public non-profit with a focus on caregivers. It will be a support system for caregivers experiencing personal hardship or needing financial assistance to further their education.
In our effort to support caregivers and better their lives, a new annual Jean Griswold Caregiver Scholarship will be awarded to a caregiver annual. Applicants do not have to work for Griswold Home Care, and additional criteria and guidelines will be released in the coming months. Caregiver Support Grants will also be made throughout the year, specifically for Griswold Home Care caregivers in need and suffering from hardship. Griswold hopes to award its first grant in the summer of 2021.
Jean Griswold founded Griswold Home Care out of her heartfelt desire to help people. Compassion and care are still the driving forces of our company today, and we are excited to continue our work in not only bettering the lives of clients, but the lives caregivers as well.
"With humility and appreciation, we recognize the critical role of our caregivers. The pandemic was an astonishing reminder of just how important they are to society. The Jean Griswold Foundation is proud to refocus its efforts towards supporting caregivers everywhere, and we look forward to awarding scholarships and grants throughout the coming year.”
- Michael Slupecki, Griswold Home Care CEO
