Interactive Care Coordinator
I've been with Comfort Keepers for the last 6.5 years and have enjoyed reaping the benefits of working with clients and their families. Comfort Keepers believes that keeping people in the safety of their homes as long as possible, gives not just the client but the family a sense of security that their family member is getting personalized one on one care.
Interactive Care Coordinator
Hi my name is Renee Jackson and I have enjoyed working with Comfort Keepers for the past year and a half. As an Assistant Interactive Care Coordinator it gives me the chance to build a relationship with each client and develop a plan of care that fits their individual needs. It is the most rewarding experience to help and be there for families in need. I am dedicated not only to our present clients and family, but also to newcomers in the future.
Caregiver Training Coordinator/Human Resources/Administration
I have been with Comfort Keepers over 11 years. As a Comfort Keeper Training specialist and educator, I provide periodic personal care and homemaking training for our caregivers. I also coordinate orientation and maintain caregiver training records and update required educational information as needed. My other responsibilities include analyzing training needs, developing curriculum, delivering courses and reporting for measurement of training needs and results. I also handle other administrative functions.
Moura Everhart is a Registered Nurse who spent her childhood years in Northern California. She and her six brothers were very close and were taught by their parents at a young age to have integrity, respect and value for all people. When her grandparents became ill, one by one, her family took care of them at home for as long as possible. Moura’s mother Irene Griffin was one of the first Registered Nurses to become a Family Nurse Practitioner’s in the state of California graduating from UC Davis in 1977. Her father had his own business and was a graduate of Oregon Institute of Technology.
Moura married her husband Ben in 1982 and they have been married for 31 years. They have three sons who graduated from Granite Hills High school in El Cajon. Two are currently serving in the military and one is going to college full time. Moura attended nursing school in the late 80’s and graduated in Dec 1990. Due to her husband Ben’s 25 year military career, she has been fortunate to work in many areas of nursing. Over the past 23 years she has worked in oncology, orthopedics, post-partum, pediatrics, cardiac nursing, medical surgical nursing, progressive care nursing and home health to name a few. In addition to Comfort Keepers Moura works 3 days a week as a nursing supervisor within a large San Diego healthcare system and is currently working on her Master of Science in Nursing.
In 2002, after having worked in home health nursing for many years she felt the need to assist clients in their homes who needed ongoing care and assistance with activities of daily living for their non-medical needs. She researched several companies who provided services and found Comfort Keepers. She felt this franchise model was the very best available and the agency she would want for her mom and in-laws should they ever require this type of care. Moura is very passionate about homecare and is adamant that her clients are to be treated with the utmost respect and dignity and have the best care possible. In 2003, Moura’s mother, Irene Griffin was retiring from her Nurse practitioner job at a local Community clinic and Moura asked her if she wanted to go into business with her. She said yes! So they opened Comfort Keepers franchise in East County in 2003. Irene worked in the business for several years before retiring in 2010 at 80 years young. She now uses Comfort Keepers services for her own care needs.
Moura continues to be active in the community and has volunteered for many organizations. Comfort Keepers of East County is a member of American Board of Home Care (ABHC), East County Chamber of Commerce, and Alpine Chamber of Commerce and has an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau (BBB).
