Helping Older Adults with Their Moment-to-Moment Needs

Our team of caregivers at Griswold Home Care of Saint Charles, Saint Louis, and Warren County can help you and your family thrive, including those with a family member who has Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia. We are a leading home care service referring compassionate in-home caregivers to older adults. Caregivers with specialized memory care experience can assist your family whenever you need the extra assistance. These caregivers are well qualified because they have worked with clients like these before while still recognizing the uniqueness of every client. Your family’s caregiver can reintroduce themselves every time they arrive, perform meal prep, and interact in your loved one’s reality while promoting short-term memory improvement.

The caregivers referred by us are fully qualified to lend a caring, helping hand. They are fully aware of challenges families like yours face when tasked with the responsibility of caring for an elderly relative, especially because it is often emotionally and even physically burdensome. You deserve to spend more time doing the things you love without having to worry about your loved one as much.

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.
