My name is Frank Pettinaro, and my wife, Mary, and I are the proud owners of Griswold Home Care of Rochester, since 2015. Griswold Home Care is a national franchise uniquely founded in 1982 by Jean Griswold, a health 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. She was an inspirational leader, diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1967 at the age of 36, but continuing to work until the age of 79. Although this remarkable woman passed in 2017, her values and high standards continue to live on in Griswold Home Care businesses all over the US and is the primary reason we chose to become part of this wonderful and caring organization by opening our office here to serve the Greater Rochester Area.
We are lifelong Rochesterians with deeply rooted family ties here. All of our educational, cultural, and professional development has been nurtured and shaped by our families and the wonderful community we are part of. We have been blessed throughout our careers to have attained and experienced a variety of roles, including executive and leadership roles in the healthcare industry, which have inspired us to understand and appreciate each of our client’s needs. Along with managing our business, Mary and I are both heavily involved in community events and volunteer efforts throughout the year, which have resulted in donations of over $500,000 for the Wilmot Cancer Center at the University of Rochester Medical Center, which we are very proud of.
It is our honor to refer caregivers to provide you with premier and trustworthy non-medical, in-home care service. We take pride in referring properly vetted, highly qualified, and compassionate caregivers to our clients through the CareAssure Screening System. Your peace of mind is our main concern, and our philosophy is simple and sincere – we would never send anyone to your home to care for you or your loved one that we would not choose for our own senior family members. Because of our personal experiences and love for our elderly family members, we understand your concerns, as we have personally experienced the daily struggles to keep them safe and happy in their homes as they age in place. The number one question we always ask is, “Would we choose this caregiver to care for our own elderly loved ones?”
We would like to thank you in advance for visiting our website and for considering us for your in-home care needs for yourself or your loved one. It is our mission and desire to provide the utmost quality of care and to build lasting relationships with you and your family as members of our community.
Frank and Mary Pettinaro
