Quality, Affordable In-Home Care In Your Community
Hello, I’m Barry Griffin, owner and operator of your local Griswold Home Care office in Jacksonville and St. Augustine, Florida. I am a Jacksonville native and my wife of over 35 years, Lisa, is a local school teacher who also assists me with our business. We have two grown sons. One lives in Jacksonville and is a paramedic and the other lives in Orlando and is in Industrial and Construction Sales. We are very blessed to have three wonderful grandchildren, two granddaughters and one grandson.
After college I spent over 6 years in the Air Force as a navigator for the E-3 surveillance aircraft. I later worked for my father’s car dealerships while continuing my education to earn my Certified Public Accountant certificate and Master’s of Business Administration. I worked in dealerships for 17 years, in multiple capacities including payroll, HR, and as General Manager. Most recently, I have been the controller for an RV Dealership for 6 years until the company was sold. While I enjoyed my profession within the automotive industry, I saw both lost jobs as an opportunity to move on into something I’d find more rewarding.
Personal life circumstances drew me toward the home care industry. My mother was able to spend the last years of her life comfortable with a CNA then transitioned to care from an RN and later to hospice, all in her home. I appreciated the care that she received and I am eager to dedicate my full time and effort toward referring caregivers to make high quality non-medical senior care available to my community in the Jacksonville, FL area.
