ACAP Cape Fear, NC

Who We Are

During the 2021 Griswold Home Care conference, Dorothy and Mike Griffin, owners of the Wilmington (NC) Griswold Home Care franchise, learned of ACAP and immediately became excited about establishing a chapter for their area. Soon they learned that ACAP’s sustaining partner organization, EveryAge, also was interested in forming a chapter for the Wilmington area. Dorothy and Ruth Finch, Executive Director of Elderhaus, have taken the lead on developing the new chapter, engaging an excellent and enthusiastic Leadership Team of local professionals who represent a wide range of community organizations that provide care for older adults.
