The Benefits of Investing in Companion Care

There are many benefits of companionship care, especially for those seniors who live alone or are experiencing loneliness. Outside of being able to help with everyday activities like transportation or errands, a companion can provide immeasurable emotional support via social interaction, conversation and active listening during difficult times. These interactions can go a long way towards helping overcome feelings of isolation and can even lower the risk of loved ones developing depression or anxiety. Plus, for many older adults, having a companion caregiver can relieve the burden on family caregivers and allow them to continue working or take a much-needed break. Perhaps most important, though, companion caregivers can provide safety supervision and help seniors stay independent, which makes them an invaluable resource for both seniors and their families.

The decision to hire extra help for a loved one can make them feel uncertain about the future of their independence. However, we want you to understand that our goal is to enhance the overall quality of life, not take away autonomy.

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.
