Jean Griswold Foundation supports House of Welcome Adult Day Services

February 06, 2017

North Shore Senior Center is honored to receive a grant from the Jean Griswold 

Foundation for House of Welcome Adult Day Services. Similar to our mission and vision, the Jean Griswold Foundation wants a future in which all seniors, including those with limited financial means, will have the opportunity to age with dignity in the comfort their own homes allowing them to “age in place.”

North Shore Senior Center’s House of Welcome Adult Day Services offers a unique program day program of structured, therapeutic, small-group activities in a comfortable, homelike setting for people with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. Participants with early and more advanced memory loss enjoy meaningful activities and friendships, while caregivers benefit from time on their own. The Jean Griswold Foundation support will help offset the cost of participants’ daily attendance fees.

About Jean Griswold Foundation and the 2017 Grant Cycle

Jean Griswold Foundation, a 501(c)(3) private foundation established in 2010, provides grants to select community programs that help people age in place. Jean Griswold Foundation appreciates the generosity of all their friends and supporters. Every dollar donated is used to further their mission to support programs and services that allow seniors to age in place. Now in its fourth year of issuing grants the foundation, has awarded over $145,000 worth of grants to nonprofit organizations across the nation.

This year, Griswold Cares Foundation received 350 proposals from nonprofits that were in need of dollars to support their mission. “We are extremely honored to have received so many proposals from nonprofit organizations during our funding cycle.” The proposals were carefully reviewed by the Foundation’s Grants Committee, comprised of nine Board Members, to determine which programs best aligned with their mission and funding priorities.

In 2016, the name of the foundation was changed from The Griswold Cares Foundation to Jean Griswold Foundation, in recognition of the founder of Griswold Home Care, Dr. Jean Griswold. Those selected for grants help to advance the Foundation’s mission of supporting services to those in need so individuals may “age in place.” For more information please visit www.GriswoldCares.org.
