Griswold Home Care

About us

Our founder, Dr. 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 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.

Griswold Home Care now operates in almost 200 locations across 30 states, touching more than 100,000 families. As the category pioneer, we have a unique position and understanding of the business of compassionate care at a deeper level. Our company was built upon the timeless values of compassion and care. These ideals are still at the heart of all we do. They are the living legacy of a remarkable woman who set out not to create a business, but to help neighbors in need. Jean Griswold’s idea was so powerful that it evolved and grew to become a nationwide organization that now serves tens of thousands of people every day.
