Delivered with Heart Awards

The Delivered with Heart Awards began in 2016 as we began planning Griswold Care Pairing Pinellas's 25th anniversary providing service to elders and their families. As we contemplated the celebration it became obvious to us that our success was made possible due to the phenomenal work of individuals across Pinellas servicing our elders. The Delivered with Heart Awards was born to thank our community for their hard work, dedication and support. Each year we recognize 8 individuals in our community who go above and beyond helping elders. In addition to the awards, this is a big opportunity for us to raise money for local not for profits, who have a mission to help elders age in place. Since 2017, we have been able to raise over $74,000!

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.
