Additional Payment Options for Home Care Services

Covering the Cost of In-Home Care

At Griswold, it is our mission to make sure those who need home care services always have access to them. Financial status should not dictate the level of care you or your loved one receive – or whether or not you or they get care at all. That’s why we offer a variety of ways to pay for non-medical home care services. Check out some of our options below and then reach out to us if you have any questions regarding payment methods.

Asset Conversion

For families who have non-liquid assets and can convert them to help cover the cost of home care expenses, we have several options available. Home equity lines of credit, reverse mortgages, and a partnership with Wellahead.

Wellahead partners with leading home care companies to offer unbiased, tailored recommendations and white-glove consultation to families, free of charge. Wellahead's proprietary platform compares 100+ different home equity based options - sale leaseback, home equity investment, direct sale and others so clients can easily understand their options to determine the best solution to meet their needs.

Medicaid Programs

To keep seniors who qualify for Medicaid out of nursing homes and living comfortably at home, there are state-specific initiatives and programs that will help cover the cost of in-home care, as long as that care can be provided at a cost that would be less than a nursing home.

*Not available in all locations. Please call your local Griswold office to see if this option is offered.

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.
