About Comfort Keepers®
Comfort Keepers® provides its singularly effective brand of non-medical, in-home care services for seniors and other clients – Interactive Caregiving™ – through over 700 franchised offices in the United States, Canada, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand and Singapore.By helping seniors stay as active as possible, Interactive Caregiving promotes a high quality of safe, satisfying, independent living in the comfort of home.
Many of our franchise owners joined Comfort Keepers after caring for a loved one and discovering the tremendous difference that in-home care makes in the quality of a senior’s life.
Kris Clum, a registered nurse working in home health care, founded Comfort Keepers after discovering her patients’ need for help with non-medical needs, such as personal care and housekeeping. As a nurse, she was limited to caring for their medical needs only.
With her entrepreneurial husband, Jerry Clum Jr., Kris opened the first Comfort Keepers office. Now the effectiveness of the Comfort Keepers approach is known far and wide – in an ever-growing number of communities served by Comfort Keepers franchise offices – as the best solution for seniors who desire to continue living in their own homes for as long as possible. Comfort Keepers care enables them to enjoy the highest level of independence and quality of life achievable.
Our franchise locations repeat this success day after day because Comfort Keepers maintains high standards for screening and hiring caregivers – the compassionate, professional individuals we call Comfort Keepers. The people selected to serve as Comfort Keepers have a genuine, heartfelt desire to help seniors. They care for each client with the respect and dignity they would provide a member of their own family.
Each of our franchise offices provides new Comfort Keepers extensive training in Comfort Keepers’ exclusive brand of senior care – Interactive Caregiving – as well as continuing training throughout their service with us.
We further enhance the effectiveness of our care by carefully matching clients and Comfort Keepers, based on personality, interests, and specialized care needs and training. This extra measure leads to strong bonds between Comfort Keepers and their clients and high levels of satisfaction of the seniors and families we serve.
It’s attention to detail like this which has made Comfort Keepers one of the leading in-home senior care providers in the U.S. and beyond.
