Home Care Resources

in North San Diego

Home care doesn’t mean you have to stay at home. Our caregivers can help facilitate you becoming more active in your community, getting out and getting moving, learn something new, or adopt healthy stress-relieving habits.

It would be our pleasure accompanying you to doctor appointments and other therapeutic destinations like parks, libraries, church services, theaters, museums, community or senior centers, meeting up with friends. Balboa Park, La Jolla Shores beach, San Diego Botanic Garden, the Farmers Market, Westfield UTC, The Rady Shell at Jacobs Park, are just a few of our suggestions.

If home is your comfort zone, we will do our very best to bringing community favorites to you.

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.
