Kristin Goluska, DSW, MPH, Owner, President

Kristin Dahlquist, DSW, MPH, Owner, President

Kristin Dahlquist, DSW, MPH is the Owner and President of Home Instead serving Denver, Aurora, Littleton, Lakewood, Centennial, Englewood, Cherry Creek, and the surrounding areas. 

Kristin is deeply committed to improving the lives of seniors both locally and nationally. In addition to her experience at several Home Instead franchises, she worked at the Alzheimer's Association and served as her district's delegate to lobby in Washington, DC for funding for families and research. She created a short-film documentary to highlight the impact of memory loss on individuals living with the disease, their families, and their millennial children which premiered in Washington, DC to raise funds to find a cure for Alzheimer's Disease. Personally, Kristin has known Home Instead since its founding in 1994 - her family became the third family served by Home Instead for her great great Aunt Emily. This first-hand experience was the catalyst for the dedication she feels to change the face of aging, and change the way we care for our parents here in Colorado. 

She earned her Master of Public Health degree from The Ohio State University and her Doctorate in Social Work from the University of Southern California. She currently serves on the board of the Parkinson Association of the Rockies.

Robert Dahlquist, Co-owner and Vice President

Robert is the co-owner and Vice President for a company that means a lot to him. His great-aunt Emily Dahlquist was the third Home Instead client in the organization's history in 1994. A firm believer in supporting our loved one's wishes to age in place, he ensured both of his parents were granted that same wish.

Robert brings decades of public service and corporate human resources experience to Home Instead, and believes that each of our team members and Care Professionals have unlimited potential to continue to change the face of aging and remain the most trusted source of home care in the world.

Robert stays busy with three wonderful kids and five grandchildren. When he gets the time, he can be found trying new Colorado golf courses with his brother Bill and daughter Kristin.
