The Challenges of Dementia

At advanced stages, the symptoms of dementia can include:

  • Extreme confusion
  • Forgetfulness
  • Withdrawal
  • Disorientation
  • Aimless wandering

From losing track of where they are going to forgetting faces, names, and basic motor functions, dementia patients require constant assistance. Helping a family member who is unable to concentrate on routine tasks or recall basic things is difficult both emotionally and practically. The toughest part about dementia can be the frustration that comes with wishing a loved one would return to normal.

Trained and skilled, our Griswold caregivers can help alleviate the pain of dealing with this situation by providing full-time care that makes a difference. Leading dementia patients through simple tasks and guiding them through the little details of everyday life, our care team can positively impact your entire family by lending a helping hand. Safety is our top concern, so we are proud to provide live-in/overnight home care services to those who may need round-the-clock care.

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.
