Quality Outcomes in Norwalk, Connecticut

“Griswold Moments” add up to quality outcomes for your loved ones

We believe life is measured in the moments that matter. Just as learning to tie one’s shoes is an important daily milestone that creates pride for a child, doing the things one loves creates moments of dignity and purpose for adults. That’s why Griswold structures our care around a holistic plan that goes beyond traditional personal care, housekeeping, transportation and companionship to elevate daily life. We do this by by tapping into the needs of the body, mind and spirit. We call elevated occasions like the ones featured here, “Griswold Moments”. Call now to explore how we can infuse high notes into the care plan for your loves one!

Out for the Day!

For some, the ultimate Non-Medical Home Care therapy, is the ability to get out of the house! In this way, Care Givers can help renew in their clients, a sense of independence and accomplishment based self- worth

No wonder Ilene believes that “Ceramic day is the best day and the second-best day is when we go shopping!” Over the past 8 years, these “days out” have created common memory bank of moments, mutual respect and fun. Important underpinnings to encourage care compliance when the time comes.

5 Minutes of Gratitude: Elevating the Spirit.

Accepting help is hard enough for anyone, but even more challenging when we are uncomfortable and confused.

When Ms. Taylor refused even the most basic personal care support, Charlene, her Griswold Home Care Fairfield County caregiver, tapped into her “Why” to motivate her.

Now each morning begins with a “5 minutes of gratitude” ritual over tea facilitated by popsicle sticks!

With her spirt now engaged and communication bond with her caregiver strengthened, Ms. Taylor is welcoming assistance, happier and benefiting from additional care.

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.
