Heidi Lipe, RN has 36 years of nursing experience. She also has participated in medical mission trips to Haiti and the Dominican Republic. She became interested in non-medical in-home care when her husband and herself brought first her parents and then her husband’s parents from Illinois to live with them in Pensacola. She understands first hand how challenging it can be to care for a loved one. Heidi serves as the Intake-Marketing Coordinator at Griswold Home Care.
In 2012 Mike and Darrell began exploring ways to make a bigger impact on the lives of others within their community. Having a desire to see that quality, cost effective services are offered to individuals within their community and to provide a higher, rewarding work environment for staff employees, they began to investigate the in-home care service industry. In the course of their research they discovered Griswold Home Care. Once they heard the organization’s founder, Jean Griswold’s, story and met with the team at Griswold Home Care, they knew they had found the right organization with which to partner. Ms. Jean’s desire was to refer caregivers to provide the best possible care in the most affordable way to the customer.
Mike, Darrell and Heidi hold a combined total of 84 years in the health care industry. Mike, Darrell and Heidi are all three actively committed to the goal of reconnecting people to their lives through quality service in their homes and honoring the request of the author of Psalm 71:9 “Cast me not off in the time of old age; forsake me not when my strength faileth”.
