We are Here to Help!

It’s hard to watch loved ones lose their independence after an injury or fall, due to a progressive disease such as Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s, or as a natural result of aging. With Griswold Home Care, you don’t have to face it alone. We are here to help!

Most people want to stay in their own home, even when extra help is needed. We make that possible! We partner with you, providing in-home care as an affordable alternative to moving to assisted living or a skilled nursing facility.

How does it work? Our nurse will meet with you to learn about your family’s specific needs and customize a care plan. We select the best caregiver or care team to meet those needs and continue to monitor changes to ensure the care matches what your loved one needs to stay safe at home. Your loved one receives the care needed and you get peace of mind knowing we are there when you can’t be.

Don’t just take our word for it. Read what our families say about working with Griswold.

“My experience with Griswold was excellent. I felt like we were supported in every way throughout mom's journey. I would really like to thank all the caregivers and Griswold Staff for helping my mother stay in her home…”

“I will always highly recommend Griswold Home Care for the excellent service and caring hearts of all of you.”

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.
