Respite Care Services in Scottsdale, AZ

Professional Caregivers by Your Side

The act of caring for an elderly loved one is heroic. At Griswold Home Care of Scottsdale, we value your efforts and are available to provide support when you need it most – offering respite care services designed to give family caregivers a much-needed break. Assisting disabled seniors and adults with special needs can feel like a full-time job. Many family caregivers take care of loved ones while juggling day jobs and countless other commitments. The strain from multiple responsibilities can add up. In such cases, our respite care can be a lifesaver. Give us a call or reach out online, and we can temporarily take over to provide you a chance to recharge your physical and emotional batteries.

We empathize with the burnout experienced by overworked individuals. Caring for someone else can be equally rewarding and exhausting. Nobody is superhuman. We all need time to relax, sleep, and rejuvenate. Let us provide you the temporary break you so desperately need. Whether you need us for a few hours, a few days, or overnight, we are ready to give you rest.

Our caregivers can help with:

  • Personal care & hygiene (bathing, dressing, brushing teeth)
  • Cooking meals and eating
  • Transporting clients to the supermarket or doctor’s office
  • Running errands
  • Providing companionship and engagement

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.
