Signs Your Loved One May Need Companionship

Companion care sounds like a relatively simple undertaking, but it requires a lot of effort and training for our caregivers. We take your family member’s care seriously, utilizing proven methods and techniques to create trust and a genuine connection.

Often, it’s difficult to see the signs that your loved one may be struggling emotionally. There are specific signs you can look for that may indicate an aging family member requires companion care.

A few indicators can include:

  • A home that’s in complete disarray
  • Sudden weight loss
  • Frequent isolation
  • Poor personal hygiene
  • Missing medications
  • The recent loss of a spouse

There are so many more indications, but the ones above are usually easier to pinpoint. Many of these signs can also manifest physically and should be addressed by a medical professional.

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.
