Quality, Non-Medical In-Home Care In Your Community
Hello, my name is Anne Seglem, owner and operator of your local Griswold Home Care office in Colorado Springs and Douglas County. I am a Registered Nurse and Certified Senior Advisor. My husband, Mark Seglem, is a distinguished 20-year Navy veteran. Together, we’ve been lifelong volunteers in our community.
I think it is important to share why we became involved with non-medical home care. I saw the need for care and help when I worked in hospitals and an outpatient clinic. I noticed that seniors’ basic needs often were not taken care of and a lot of times there was no family in town to help. I never imagined owning my own home care business, but constant reminders while working as a nurse convinced me that I was led to this service. My background is in critical care. As an owner that is also a nurse, I am in the unique position to offer my clients professional advice and I encourage them to call me if they have a questions. It is equally important to me that all my caregivers know that I am always available for them. The caregivers realize that I care just as much for them as for my clients and they are brought on my team only if I would place them in my own home with my parents. I am very involved with my clients and know them well. I or my Care Coordinator make sure we visit the clients regularly to see that they are doing ok, if their needs have changed, if they are happy with the care, and anytime that the client needs to see us. My passion for my clients and our top notch team of caregivers is what makes such a difference in the lives of those I serve. My goal is to see all my clients happy and enjoying their life and their independence as much as possible…most importantly, in their own home.
Griswold Home Care has been a leader in the home care industry for over 33 years. We are proud to join the tradition by offering affordable, high quality home care to our Colorado neighbors.
“Anne’s team is caring, attentive, knowledgeable, and consistently go beyond what you would expect someone to do or provide. Even though my mom is now in assisted living, Anne continues to stop by and see how she is doing. I cannot recommend her or her agency highly enough.”
“I was looking for a professional service to help me with my mother in her home care. I went to caring.com and that’s where I initially came across Griswold. I considered two other agencies but it seems that they would promise you everything but they just wanted the money. I didn’t feel the same way with Griswold. I felt like they generally were interested in helping me and listening all my concerns about my mother.
I like the way that they screened the caregivers they provided. There’s stability in the care that my mother was receiving. They were thoughtful about my concerns and what might be my mother’s concerns. They also made a practice of coming out to see how the caregivers were doing which I thought is good. It shows that they are professional and they’re interested in keeping a standard for their business.
They also came to see my mother when she was in a hospital. When she eventually get into long term care, they came and drop by and brought her a little treat. They’re nice and quality people. I would use them again.”
