GRISWOLD SPECIAL CARE was started in 1982 by Jean Griswold to meet an unmet need for in home personal care. The catalyst was the tragic death of a family friend who was unable to secure the help she needed. Today Jean Griswold continues to serve as CEO of the company and director of the original office in Erdenheim, PA.

Her husband, Lincoln Griswold, a Presbyterian minister with a doctorate in Tanatology (the study of death and dying), joined her full time in 1985 and serves as Chairman of the Board with oversight of all corporate, legal, insurance, and tax matters.

In 1987, when Jean Griswold fell and broke her arm and shoulder, their son Kent took a six-month leave of absence from his job in Australia to come home to help out as General Manager. Kent, who has an undergraduate degree from Harvard as well as an MBA from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, never went back. He now serves as President, overseeing the on-going operations and expansion of the company.

Lori L. Rosenquist, Ph.D., M.S.G., a policy analyst and gerontologist whose PhD is in Gerontology, joined the company in 1993 as Acting President when Kent took a sabbatical to write a novel. Upon his return, she remained as Vice President. Today Lori Griswold is Kentīs wife and Executive Vice President as well as Executive Director of the Special Care Foundation, a non-profit entity that underwrites emergency care for financially challenged clients.

All businesses face major challenges along the way, and Griswold is no exception. The first major challenge facing the company is the onset of potentially costly and inefficient government regulations precipitated by numerous forces including nursing associations, unions, home health organizations, the disabled community, the long term care industry, as well as politicians themselves all trying to influence legislation to their own benefit.
