About Griswold Home Care of North Houston

Griswold caregivers help make life better.

If you have an aging, disabled, or injured loved one, you understand the challenges they face living independently at home. Whether it's simple tasks like getting in or out of bed, personal grooming, or meal preparation and light home cleaning; or just someone to talk
with to keep them socially active - they deserve to live with dignity in the comfort of home.

Griswold Home Care is a non-medical home care provider in the North Houston area that delivers care with compassion, empathy, and respect for the care recipient and their
families. Our caregivers work with your loved one to encourage their independence and to improve the quality of life they might enjoy.

Backed by a nationally recognized brand with nearly 40 years of experience, our North Houston caregivers are trained and have the experience to support the needs of your family. Based on experience and training, our caregivers are matched with the needs of the care recipient to ensure a great fit. Whether your family member requires an hour or two of companion care a few times a week requires a more extensive level of care such as an adult with cognitive and memory impairment - Griswold Home Care can help.

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.
