Our Griswoldness

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.

As a disabled Army veteran, I knew what qualities to look for when seeking quality home care. Griswold’s excellence in customer service reaffirms that, through teamwork, all is possible. Thank you for everything Christine.

I’m speaking for four of us when I say we could not be happier with the care provided by Griswold employees. We hired Griswold to provide weekly visits to my brother in a nursing home. The two women who visit are highly responsible, trustworthy, considerate, warm-hearted caregivers. Their duties include calling family members (who all live out of state) so we can talk to my brother. He clearly loves their visits, and we have noticed a significant improvement in his mood, comprehension, and overall health since the visits began. The visitors also inform us when he needs any extra attention, like haircuts, and they inform the staff when they notice anything that requires medical attention. They often bring him out to the patio to enjoy the fresh air. The office staff always get back to us quickly, and are consistently courteous, informative, and pro-active in their responses. We give Griswold our highest recommendation.

Three years ago I used Griswold Home Care for myself recovering from major surgery. The aide was reliable and knew more about how to help me, than I knew to ask. Personal care, light housekeeping, and accompanying me several times a week to the doctor. Two week ago I used them again for an aide to drive/accompany me to hospital for minor surgery. The aide arrived early, was pleasant, available as needed to prepare me to leave hospital and safely returned me home. To know there is an agency nearby that has trustworthy, high quality care is a huge comfort.

Two months ago our world was turned upside down when my father suffered a stroke. An otherwise healthy and active man living by himself, we were faced with some difficult decisions to make. It was important to my Dad and our family that he be able to rehab in his own home, but that also required us to have 24-hour care for him. I will always be grateful to the Griswold Home Care agency. Stephanie was wonderful with guiding us through the process and Janet, our CAN, I think might truly have been an angel. She provided competent, supportive, and nurturing care. Blended into our family and gave my Dad the confidence to return to his normal routine. Today my Dad is almost back to doing all the things he did before. The peace and reassurance, knowing that my Dad was in good hands during this otherwise chaotic time in our lives, will always be appreciated.
