Our founder, Jean Griswold, started Griswold Home Care, a caregiver referral company, after seeing the unmet needs of members of her church. The wife of a Presbyterian minister and living with Multiple Sclerosis herself, Jean founded the company on two principles; that quality care should be affordable and that professional caregivers should be highly respected and their profession should be elevated.

Griswold Home Care has helped families remain safe and independent at home since 1982 by referring professional caregivers who provide personal care, homemaking, and companionship services. We believe that everyone who wants to preserve their dignity by aging at home and receiving personalized attention should have access to exceptional home care.
