As Griswold Home Care marks its 36th anniversary this week, it pays to reflect on the nature of this business and the Griswoldness that has made the company successful for all these years. While Griswold Home Care is, in fact, a business, it is one that’s grounded in empathy and compassion, and only by treating every client with the dignity they deserve can such a business thrive.
We bear the name of our company founder, Jean Griswold, and it’s a heavy responsibility to bear. Jean, who passed away in 2017, believed no one living at home should have to go without basic care. She saw the result of lack of care when a parishioner at her church tragically passed away, malnourished, and set out to ensure that wouldn’t happen again. She was driven by that incident to found the company in her dining room in Erdenheim, Pennsylvania in 1982.
It’s that compassion that guides all Griswold Home Care staff and caregivers each day. We occupy a unique position in a highly competitive field—one that sets us apart from all others. It’s a distinction born of our heritage and values. We call it our Griswoldness.
Our company was built upon the timeless values of compassion and care. These ideals are still at the heart of all we do, 36 years later. On this occasion, Griswold Home Care would like to say thank you to all of our caregivers and staff who embody Jean Griswold’s values every day. And we especially want to thank all of our clients for their faith in us and for letting us care for them and their loved ones. We promise we won’t ever let you down!
