Jean Griswold Foundation Recognizes 27 Organizations for Dedication to Seniors

The Jean Griswold Foundation, a nonprofit named for the founder of Griswold Home Care, awarded grants to 27 organizations for their work to improve the lives of seniors and others in the communities in which Griswold Home Care operates. The awards help subsidize health initiatives and home care services for those who otherwise couldn’t afford them.

The Jean Griswold Foundation is a private charity established by Griswold Home Care to further the company’s belief that care for the elderly and disabled should be accessible to all. Every dollar donated is used to further its mission to support programs and services that allow seniors to age in place. Formerly the Griswold Cares Foundation, the 501c3 nonprofit changed its name in 2016 to honor the founder of Griswold Home Care, Dr. Jean Griswold, who passed away in 2017.

The application process for the next round of Jean Griswold grants will begin in fall 2019. For more information, please visit
