Griswold Special Care

About Griswold Special Care

A geriatric counselor and clergyman's wife, Jean C. Griswold founded Griswold Special Care in 1982 to help people remain independent. Griswold was inspired to start the program after an elderly widow from her husband's church died of kidney failure because she couldn't find anyone to take care of her at night. The company's first employees were graduate students from local seminaries. Griswold was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1990. Griswold Special Care provides ongoing home care for people who need help with daily tasks, are disabled, bed- or wheelchair-bound, live alone, or are recovering from hospitalization or nursing home stays. The service can also be used to give caregivers a break from caring for family members. The company's caregivers cook and prepare meals, do light housekeeping, shop and run errands, assist with transportation and medication, and transfer clients from beds to chairs. Offices in Florida offer expanded services with the help of RNs, LPNs and CNAs.
