The company was founded by a geriatric counselor, Dr. Jean Griswold, in response to the growing need for quality, affordable home care services in her own community of Erdenheim, PA just outside of Philadelphia. Headquartered still in Erdenheim, Griswold today has more than 130 offices throughout the U.S. In the past three decades, Griswold has received dozens of industry and community awards, and has grown to become one of the nation's leading non-medical home care companies.

Anne Seglem, the co-owner and Executive Director of Griswold Home Care of Colorado Springs and Douglas County is an experienced RN who has worked in area critical care units and outpatient clinics for years. She brings a wealth of experience in providing care and in recognizing the very best caregivers in our region. “After years of seeing how so many of our elderly and special needs folks lack affordable home care, I decided it was time to do something about it”, Anne recently stated. “I love our association with Griswold because they place such an emphasis on quality, affordable care and on taking care of the caregivers who provide the service to our clients.”
