About Our Staff

Dorothy Silvanic
Co-Owner

Dorothy is a 25 year USAF veteran, serving primarily as an Aircraft Maintenance Officer with one assignment at the USAF Academy as a Group AOC. She retired in 2011 as a Colonel and Commander of the 48th Maintenance Group, at RAF Lakenheath, England. In 2011, she and Mark returned the family to the Colorado Springs area, attracted by the outstanding school systems, year-round sports and outdoor activities and beauty of the Front Range. Her interest in helping seniors is a natural extension of her service ethic, and a way to give back to her community. She has first-hand experience finding quality care for loved ones who faced a variety of specific in-home care needs, and looks forward to providing the best quality care to seniors in the Colorado Springs area. Dorothy serves on the board of the Tri Lakes Silver Alliance and the Colorado Parkinson’s Foundation.
