Meet Our Comfort Keepers

Our team is uniquely qualified and ready to help with your senior home health care

Every member of our team is professional and well trained. We conduct a thorough screening and interviewing process to identify the best senior home health care providers, and only those who pass this process go on to complete training to deliver our special brand of home care and become Comfort Keepers®. What truly sets our caregivers apart, though, is their natural gift of caring for others. 

All Comfort Keepers pass extensive background checks and complete continuing education. They are bonded, insured and covered by workers' compensation insurance to protect our clients and their families.

Meet our team! We asked our caregivers a few questions so you could get to know the wonderful people that make up Comfort Keepers.
