Irania loves the good and challenging parts of working for Comfort Keepers. She feels "Elevating The Human Spirit" is to bring joy to our clients lives. Providing support through thick and thin. Making them feel that they have a purpose in life. Being their family when they don't have one. Helping them reach their highest potential both physically and mentally.
Irania was a care manager for a private fiduciary for over 5 years overseeing the care of court appointed conservatorship for adults, primarily seniors. Int that role she helped them remain in their home with assistance from caregivers. She also worked a case worker overseeing children and adolescence with disabilities throughout the East Bay community.

Erin became a caregiver right out of high school after seeing her grandfather receive amazing care from an in home health agency. She began caring for her grandmother when her grandfather passed, and then continued to dedicate herself to many clients over the years. Erin provided joy and positive energy to her clients in multiple agencies for over 18 years, the last 5 years being with Comfort Keepers. Erin also spent 9 years as Regional Coaching Administrator while caregiving. The role and the requirements of that previous job have helped Erin in her new role as Regional Recruiter.

Elevating the human spirit to Erin means giving of your heart 100 percent to the people needing care. Always showing up with a smile no matter what is going on, and making sure that you leave your client with a smile at the end of the visit.

Ruth Vallejo Hayes
Internal Care Coordinator
Ruth loves the family atmosphere and the support always received from management when she was a caregiver and now that she's moved into an administrative position that same team work and togetherness continues.
To Ruth, "Elevating the Human Spirit" means caring for our clients as if it was a loved one. Empathy, compassion, and dignity go a long way. Making sure that not only are their everyday life needs are met but ensuring their emotional state of mind is in the right place. At the end of the day, you have to love what you do in order to provide the highest level of care.
After working as a Juvenile Probation Counselor, Ruth quickly realized that criminal justice was not her field of preference, She turned to care giving after caring for family. She was a caregiver for several years with another agency and loved every aspect of caring for our elderly. Dementia and Hospice was and still is her preferred areas in the geriatric field. She is fully skilled and doesn't hesitate to go on the field when asked.
