Caring and compassionate team
There are many companies operating today in the senior home care industry. Given the demographics of an aging population, there are more entrants every day. Many of them are fine companies who provide excellent and compassionate care as we do. But we’re a little different, and it’s worthwhile to understand the differences that make up our Griswoldness and make us unique in the marketplace:
Compassion, More than Commerce
Griswold was established in 1982 based on a model of compassionate care originally in the Philadelphia area based on the values of Jean Griswold our founder. Back in the early 1980s there were far less demographic underpinnings to the senior care industry. Jean saw the need in her community and acted. Boomers were then people in their 30s and 40s when she established the company. She merely saw a need in her community and reacted with no business ambitions. The delivery of compassionate care was her primary objective then as it is at Griswold Home Care today.
Compassion is Timeless because Dignity is Timeless
We live in a world where new technology can change industries rapidly. While that's true in most industries, the delivery of compassionate care is "old fashioned". It’s a business where old-time values of respect for the individual and compassion to those who have need are the bedrocks of our reason for being. We help our clients retain the dignity they seek in living in the place they love. The longevity of our business and the long-term relationship with caregivers makes Griswold special, and caregivers working with Griswold are second to none in the industry, provide unparalleled compassionate care. They truly have a “Heart of Gold”. That’s the Griswold way.
Our name was not created by marketing people
Our name is Griswold, not a snappy name that marketing folk would have thought of. It’s another reason why we'll always be a little different. We were founded and named by a person, Jean Griswold, and Jean’s values permeate through how we operate, who we are, and how we will exist in the future. We have the obligation of living up to our founder’s name. We take that responsibility seriously and seek to do so every day.
We are proud of our “Griswoldness” and proud to have a long history of compassionate care for seniors. We ask for the opportunity of caring for you or a loved one. You can depend on us for the highest level of compassionate care, helping people live in the place they love.
