Personal Care in Silver Spring, MD

Silver Spring Personal Care Help with the Daily Care Routine

Most of us would rather age comfortably in place than transfer to a retirement or long-term care facility. Yet, accomplishing this successfully frequently calls for some sort of assistance. There may come a point when getting around and taking care of yourself become more difficult than you can handle on your own whether you become ill or disabled, are recuperating from surgery, or are simply facing the obstacles of aging.

Our goal at Griswold Home Care is to meet as many non-medical requirements as we can. Help with personal care tasks like washing, using the restroom, and dressing might be the difference between someone being able to live at home and needing other living arrangements. Our personal care services are tailored to each client's unique needs, but maintaining the cleanliness, comfort, and best appearance of individuals we look after is always our main priority.

Always Here for You When You Need Us

Our clients receive support from Griswold Home Care whenever they require it. In order to shower, dress, and prepare for the day, assistance may be required in the morning. Someone who wakes up frequently at night might require help using the restroom. Our services can be planned at the times and frequencies that guarantee these crucial needs are addressed, regardless of the circumstance.

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.
