Care Services Testimonials
"...Exceeded my Expectations..."
I wanted to send a few words your way regarding the service you and your staff provided to my parents when we were all in a bit of a crisis. We needed care a.s.a.p. I made the first call to Comfort Keepers late in the evening. Not only was it was returned immediately, you found someone to come in the next morning.....and there was NO MINIMUM three or four hour time requirement. WOW! A couple of things after that which exceeded my expectations... your staff made follow up calls to see if everything was going well, you had a staff member visit with my parents to ensure they were comfortable with the care giver, you provided the same care giver time and time again to reduce confusion. I spoke with many staff members on the phone when calling in and each and every one of them was courteous, caring and extremely helpful.
Thank you for making my job of "care giver" a much, much easier one. Keep up the good work!
"...the Best and Most Trusted..."
I am very pleased that I chose Comfort Keepers. Their commitment to client care and integrity of their staff make families of loved ones completely at ease knowing that they are being looked after the way a family member would look after them.
In essence, I am happy to say that Comfort Keepers are our “extended family.” I would highly recommend Comfort Keepers to anyone who asks for in-home care as they are, in my opinion, the best and most trusted in their field.
"...You Are Truly Special..."
I want to personally thank you for taking care of my mom during her last days. Your time with her was special and helped make her comfortable. I wish I had been able to spend more time in Florida, but having you there was a big help to me. I have a newfound respect for the care you give people. You are truly special.

"...Compassionate and Skilled and Added a Unique Touch to Her Care..."
I wish to acknowledge the superb contributions to my mother’s safety and wellbeing made by the people of Comfort Keepers. Not only did you arrange for her care on very short notice, but every caregiver who came to the house was well prepared for her difficult work. Thank you for taking on the task and performing it in a superior manner. At the outset, I had no idea that your service even existed, much less could be made available so quickly. As the days passed, I was impressed with each of your caregivers as I met them. Every one of them was compassionate and skilled and added a unique touch to her care. You came recommended by a senior advisor and was told yours was the top agency of its kind. She was certainly correct in that judgment.
Comfort Keepers Client
"...Caring and Professional..."
From the initial phone contact when I spoke to Janet through to the care providers, I found Comfort Keepers to be a caring and professional service. You demonstrated your patience and concern for my mother's situation, and you were open to feedback.
Comfort Keepers Client
"...Making the Day Very Pleasant..."
Little things like preparing herself ahead of time as to the routes she needed to take to ensure she got Dixie to the right place at the right time, thus doing away with any confusion as to appointment locations. This person ensured Dixie took the right medication at the right time and socially interacted with Dixie, making the day very pleasant and giving Dixie a sounding board for conversation. This wonderful employee swept the floors, vacuumed, watered the plants, prepared meals and many other tasks, thereby helping Dixie prevent any accidents.

Louise D., Comfort Keepers Florida Regional Winner 2008 and National Winner
"No other group gave me the support of a well-organized staff and an ongoing educational program essential for the development of a well-informed, equipped caregiver. Comfort Keepers’ mission and vision translates to a true desire for each of their employees to utilize their training, talents and experiences for success. This success translates into our providing clients with exceptional food preparation, cleaning, and so on… but most importantly, providing an environment of compassionate care, safety, and happiness as they age with dignity. There is no greater satisfaction than to see someone’s life improve because of the joint efforts of you and your co-caregivers! I was born to be a caregiver… I choose to be a Comfort Keeper."
Debbie D., Comfort Keepers Midwest Regional Winner 2008
"I chose to become a Comfort Keeper to help people and make their lives a little easier and happier. The part I enjoy the most about being a Comfort Keeper is that I get to know my clients like family. I love to spend time with them. I also try to find activities for them and make daily living easier and fun for them. Comfort Keepers has helped me learn a lot about making new friends and appreciating life. I realize that my clients may not be around forever, but they will always be in my heart."
Shandra P., Comfort Keepers Southeast Regional Winner 2008
"I chose to become a Comfort Keeper because I get great joy out of serving seniors. I am currently in nursing school and taking care of seniors is a great experience and privilege. I wanted to work somewhere that I could make a difference in peoples’ lives, and I knew Comfort Keepers was that place. Comfort Keepers is different from any other place I have worked. In the six plus years that I have been employed at Comfort Keepers, I have come to know that it is truly a company that cares for its employees and clients. The other places I have worked are task oriented, but Comfort Keepers is relationship oriented. Even our mission statement is different: to treat each of our clients with the respect and dignity they deserve, as though we are caring for a member of our own family."
Patty T., Comfort Keepers North East Regional Winner 2008
"I became a Comfort Keeper to assist, help keep our clients in their own homes, make their lives simpler, and help them accomplish as much as they can. I enjoy the interactions with my clients and learning about their life experiences. Being a Comfort Keeper has enriched my life by more than I could ever imagine. I enjoy the people that I interact with. Never in my wildest dreams, did I ever expect that I would be caregiving for seniors on a regular basis, nor how much they have changed my life and outlook."
Norma N., Comfort Keepers Mideast Regional Winner 2008
"I became a Comfort Keeper so I can help give the elderly the respect and care they deserve. I enjoy seeing their faces when they achieve something new or do something that they didn’t think they would ever do again. Being a Comfort Keeper lets me do the things with my clients that other places are not able to do on a one-on-one basis. It is very important to our clients that they know someone is there to help them and to listen to what they have to say."
Maria V., Comforts Keepers Western Regional Winner 2008
"I chose Comfort Keepers because I wanted to represent an agency that only believes in giving 110%. Michelle and Troy set high standards for the company, and they expect the same from their Comfort Keepers. What I enjoy most about being a Comfort Keeper is the fact that I genuinely like to help people. Whether it is cleaning around the home or making the client their favorite meal, just seeing the smile on the client’s face is proof enough that I am making a difference in their life."
Jeanie E., Comfort Keepers Central Regional Winner 2008
"When I first became a Comfort Keeper. I did not realize at the time that I was led here and how this job would choose me and the people that I would encounter. Every one of them would touch my heart in some way. It is not often that you feel truly valued as an employee or feel that your input matters, but at Comfort Keepers I am truly valued as an employee and person. I know everyday what I do matters; I know everyday I am giving my clients a reason, a purpose, and I get so much more in return."

Glenda H., Comfort Keepers Midwest Regional Winner 2007
"What being a Comfort Keeper has meant to my life would take too long to tell because I’ve been blessed by so many things.
I am very honored to know that I have made a difference in the lives of my clients, and that they have trusted me to come into their homes to care for them. I am thankful that God has blessed me with love and compassion and put the desire in my heart to be a Comfort Keeper. I leave each client’s home so blessed and lifted up. I truly enjoy my work."
Jon S., Comfort Keepers Northeast Regional Winner 2007
"I am extremely honored to be chosen as the Northeast Region Comfort Keeper of the Year. It is a mark of distinction I did not expect, but one that I am extremely proud of. I simply try to make my client’s day a bit more enjoyable. I never considered working at Comfort Keepers as job but rather my way of helping someone less fortunate than me. After meeting my fellow regional winners today, it is a privilege just to be in their company. Any one of them will make a great “Comfort Keeper of the Year.”
Marilyn R., Comfort Keepers Central Regional Winner 2007
"So many people do NOT have a career they love. I cannot begin to describe the joy it brings me to give comfort to our clients as well as their families. I feel I bring the client independence and the family peace of mind. I become a part of their family and treat them as if they were part of mine. God has blessed my life."
Shakeria F., Comfort Keepers Florida Regional Winner 2007
"I love being able to give back to the community, lending a helping hand to those who need one, and most of all seeing the smile I bring to the client’s face when I walk through the door. To me, being a Comfort Keeper means doing what I love where I can demonstrate the values of life that I strongly believe in. I believe all people should be treated with honor, dignity and respect regardless of their circumstances. I love to come to work and I look forward to each working day for the different challenges I know it will bring. This is truly a wonderful work family."
Theresa A., Comfort Keeper of the Year 2007 and Comfort Keepers Northwest Regional Winner 2007
"I enjoy the warm feelings I get from my clients after a shift. They look forward to my visits with them because sometimes I am the light of their day. I can leave a shift with tears in my eyes from the appreciation of my dementia client, or with pride when the ones who are able, get their wings and begin to take care of themselves once again.
I enjoy working for an employer where the employees are as important as the clients. Comfort Keepers provides valuable training and supportive office staff. As one past award winner said, “ 'Clients leave a footprint in your heart.' ”
Yolande R., Comfort Keepers Western Regional Winner 2007
"I chose to become a Comfort Keeper because I wanted a rewarding career. Being a Comfort Keeper has given my life worth and has made me a better person, which in turn I can give back to them. I am helping my clients, but the truth is that they are helping ME!" "I am rewarded daily as I see my clients smile when I come to their homes and make their time more valuable as a senior. I truly enjoy when I see my clients faces light up when I tend to their needs, as I would my own parents or family members. Seniors need to feel valued at this time of their life and want someone to listen to their life's great stories, which we can all learn by. Knowing you improved someone's life is so invaluable. I love being a Comfort Keeper!"
Ida "Bunny" B., Comfort Keepers Southeast Regional Winner 2007
"I am so blessed to be named Comfort Keeper of my region. Being a caregiver means the world to me. God has been good to me, and I am so happy to be taking care of my clients. Thank you very much for this reward!"
2006 Conference Winners
Renee M., Comfort Keepers Northwest Regional Winner 2006
"I’ve been with Comfort Keepers in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho for 6 years, and I love every minute of my job! When I applied for a job at Comfort Keepers, I had no idea what it was about. When I noticed the camaraderie amongst the employers and employees, also reading the mission policy, I noticed how hard everyone was working toward the same goal, that really impressed me. I will always be a Comfort Keeper and every year I get better and better at what I do. I hope I receive a Comfort Keeper when I become old because I’ll enjoy the same care I’ve given to each and every one of my clients."
