Meet The Comfort Keepers® Who Make Up Our Home Care Agency in Damariscotta, Rockland, and Topsham, ME
Our home care agency's team is uniquely qualified and ready to help
Every member of our team is professional and well trained. Our home care agency conducts a thorough screening and interviewing process to identify the best senior 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.
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.

Providing support that gives peace of mind to clients and their families is at the heart of what Comfort Keepers is all about.

I am a 55 year old mother, sister, daughter and grandmother of 3. I love spending time with my grandchildren and family. I am very passionate about my job. My clients are so loving, caring and have wonderful life stories to tell. I have been a caregiver for 10 years, with the last 2 with Comfort Keepers. In my spare time, I love riding my motorcycle, sea glass searching, arts and crafts.

I have been very happy working as a caregiver for Comfort Keepers since Nov. 2014. The desire to serve and care for others is something that comes fairly naturally to me so working for Comfort Keepers has been a great fit. I helped care for the needs of my mother, who was quite debilitated with Parkinsons. I try to keep in mind when working with my clients that they are someone's loved family member and it would be my desire to care for them the same way I cared for my own mother - with patience, love and compassion.
The pleasure and satisfaction of forming positive client relationships; preserving independence with dignity; creating laughter with joy; and the knowledge you've made a difference in someone else's life is its own reward. Life is all about relationships - the rest is just details.
I was born and raised in Hodgdon, ME up in "the County". After 40 years of life's ups and downs and raising a family of three fantastic children, I now reside in Lisbon Falls. I am the very proud "Yaya" of four beautiful grandchildren! I take great pleasure in gardening, reading and continually gathering new ideas from Pinterest!
