Jean Griswold Foundation
Our Focus is Supporting Caregivers
Caregivers are the lifeblood of a home care company. In snow or rain. In heat or high winds. Even in a global pandemic, caregivers go into homes to provide care and compassion to our loved ones.
Griswold Home Care is proud to announce the Jean Griswold Foundation will focus solely on caregivers. The Jean Griswold Foundation is a public, non-profit foundation whose primary goal is to support caregivers and better their lives. It is a place for caregivers to turn to experiencing personal hardship or needing financial assistance for educational purposes.
Thank you to all who have applied for the National Caregiver Scholarship Program. The finalists have been selected and notified to continue the application process. The scholarship winners will be announced on Jean Griswold’s birthday, July 30th, 2022. Stay tuned for information regarding the 2023 Scholarship Program, which promises to be bigger and better than ever!
We will be awarding five scholarships of up to $2000 to deserving caregivers who wish to further their education in a care-related field. Applicants don’t have to be associated with Griswold Home Care, and the funds will be paid directly to the institution where the caregiver will be receiving education.
There will also be Caregiver Support Grants made throughout the year, specifically for Griswold Home Care caregivers in need and suffering from hardship.
“With humility and appreciation, we recognize the critical role of our caregivers,” said Griswold Home Care CEO Michael Slupecki. “The pandemic was an astonishing reminder of just how important they are to society. The Jean Griswold Foundation is proud to refocus its efforts towards supporting caregivers everywhere, and we look forward to awarding scholarships and grants throughout the coming year.”
