Meet Our Comfort Keepers® Home Health Aide Team
Our team of caregivers and healthcare professionals is uniquely qualified and ready to help
We understand that it's difficult to entrust the care of a senior family member to a stranger. You have provided them with wonderful care and have a special bond because they are your family. How can you possibly trust someone else to provide that same level of care? Comfort Keepers is committed to treating each of our senior clients as though they were members of our own family, it is part of our company mission.
How do we select our caregiving team?
Each of our home health aides, certified nursing assistants and in-home caregivers are thoroughly trained to provide the best level of care, passionate about helping others and hand-picked by our team. 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.
We conduct an interview process to identify the best home 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 people apart, though, is their natural gift for caring for others.
How will I interact with my family's caregiver?
When you express interest in Comfort Keepers, we will schedule an initial consultation at your senior loved one's home at a time that is convenient for your family. A senior care expert will assess your loved one's health and the state of their home. From there, we will work with your family, your senior loved one and our team to create a customized Plan of Care, unique to your senior loved one's specific needs. We will match your family up with one of our caregivers who has a personality that will suit your family's needs, and they will begin care. Our caregivers enjoy truly bonding with our senior clients - they'll go on walks, play games, prepare meals together, and do many meaningful activities to elevate the quality of your senior loved one.
You will work closely with your home health aide to ensure that all of your senior loved one's needs are met and you enjoy peace of mind that they living happily and independently. Please feel free to call us at any time to discuss your caregiving needs, and we will do everything possible to accommodate you!

Denise knew she wanted to become an RN from an early age! As a teenager, Denise spent many hours as a candystriper in her local hospital. She attended the University of South Florida where she received her Bachelor of Science in Nursing. During college, she worked with Hospice and continued her volunteering at the Shriners Hospital in Tampa, FL. Upon graduation, she worked at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Tampa and gained valuable experience in the medical, surgical, urology, gynecology, and psychiatric units. She then became the charge nurse in the special procedures unit and pain management unit.
In recent years while raising 4 children, Denise has done private duty nursing and has been an active volunteer within the community. As a Florida native, she knows the importance of supporting our growing population of seniors. She currently works part-time for a company that tests certified nursing assistant students before they receive their Florida state licensure.
Therefore, Denise expects the highest quality of care from our caregivers. Upon meeting Denise, you will immediately see that her positive attitude and smile will exemplify how as a Comfort Keeper she will “elevate the human spirit.”
