Meet the Colorado Springs Office

Aldon Purdham - Owner & Executive Director

Franchise OwnerDuring his 23 years of service in the US Air Force, Aldon led numerous organizations to greater success while achieving the rank of Colonel.  Then as a consultant with an international consulting firm, he advised national and defense organizations in overcoming their major challenges.  He later significantly improved a multi-state construction company’s operational efficiencies and employee culture as its COO.  While these may be viewed as diverse pursuits, they all reflect Aldon’s desire and passion to serve and positively impact others and their quality of life.  After witnessing the heartfelt care his mother, father, and mother-in-law received during the latter stages of their lives, Aldon started Talem Home Care & Placement Services in Colorado Springs.  He has been able to apply his passion for serving others along with his leadership experience to guide his Talem team in providing that same compassionate and personalized care to seniors, while bringing peace of mind to their loved ones.  Today, he continues his daily commitment to ensure Talem provides optimal care with a servant’s heart to seniors.  Aldon is blessed to have been married to his lovely wife, Lauralyn, for 25 years, and couldn’t be prouder of his four children, Jordan (23), Delaney (21), Lindsey (18), and Sydney (15), who also have a heart for helping others.  When he isn’t visiting, advising, or overseeing care for seniors, Aldon enjoys spending time with family and friends, hiking, and playing other sports, albeit a little slower than he did at one time.
