The Importance of Companionship Home Care Services

Companionship isn’t often thought of when in-home care services are discussed. However, at Griswold Home Care of New Haven and Middlesex County, we understand that companionship is essential to mental, emotional, and physical well-being. It is essential to creating and maintaining a healthy quality of life.

What’s the Difference Between a Companion and a Caregiver?

While the terms “companion” and “caregiver” are often used interchangeably, there are important distinctions between the two roles. A companion is typically someone who provides seniors with social and emotional support. They may also provide some basic level of physical assistance, such as help with walking or reminders for medication. Caregivers, on the other hand, are trained professionals who provide seniors with more comprehensive levels of care. In addition to providing companionship, they may also help with activities of daily living, such as bathing, dressing, and eating. They may also administer medication and coordinate medical appointments. Both companions and caregivers play a vital role in ensuring that seniors receive the help they need to live happily, safely and independently.

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.
