Jean Griswold Foundation a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping older residents age in place, has awarded grants to 39 organizations devoted to improving the lives of seniors and others in the communities in which Griswold Home Care operates.

The awards aim to help subsidize health initiatives and home health services for those who otherwise couldn’t afford them.

“Giving much-needed funds to local nonprofits that share Griswold Home Care’s passion for helping people remain in the place they love—their homes—is tremendously rewarding. Each of these worthy organizations has improved the lifestyles of many older citizens and those who are recovering from illness or trauma,” says Cathy Howard, co-president of the foundation and Director of Griswold Home Care of Fairfield County, Connecticut, in a media release.
