Below you will find answers to some of the most common questions prospective franchisees have.
What is Griswold Home Care?
Griswold Home Care is the first non-medical home care franchise in the United States. Founded by Jean Griswold after realizing the lack of care and resources available to low-income seniors and adults with disabilities, we have grown into one of the most storied and successful franchise systems in the country. Jean’s legacy of empathy and compassion is at the heart of who we are today. Our franchise owners are among the longest-tenured and highest-performing in the $89 billion home care industry. The American Association of Franchisees and Dealers named Griswold Home Care the Franchisor of the Year in both 2017 and 2019.
