One person’s like the next person.” We found the people who were such a wonderful match for Mom and I’ve been able to have them consistently. Griswold supported the fact that I would like the same ...”

Below are lists of potential places to update certifications, Liability Insurance, and FTW. We are always looking to share info. So… if you have suggestions please let us know.

Discount Medical Plans

GriswoldConnect: Virtual Care is a telehealth program (powered by Teledoc) that allows you and your household members to gain 24/7/365 access to a board-certified physician in your state. Remain in the comfort of your own home, or anywhere you need it. Access is via phone or computer (text or video). Note: Griswold Virtual Care is not intended to replace your primary care physician, it does not count as insurance under the Affordable Care Act, nor is it required. It is a low cost supplemental program.

FamilyWize– FamilyWize is a free prescription discount program available to everyone, whether they are insured or uninsured. The FamilyWize Prescription Discount Card covers all FDA approved prescription medications and saves consumers an average of around 40% on prescriptions. It is easy to use with no registration or eligibility criteria.


Accushield credentials everyone that has interactions within multiple ALF’s/SNF’s within our community. There is a cost to this service. As a Caregiver you’re an independent contractor (Self Employed Professional), Griswold Home Care cannot pay the fee directly or reimburse you. If a referred client is in a facility that utilizes the service, the cost can be passed on to the client if mutually agreed upon. You can choose to do so in the form of higher rates or as an additional charge (i.e., like mileage or a food allowance for a Live-In).

  • For those clients paying their caregiver directly, we would recommend just adding this to one of the weekly bills (like you would Mileage or a Food Allowance).
  • For LTC, you will need to add the fee to one of your clock outs, like you do mileage

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.
