Amy Joy

Comfort Keeper of the Year 2023

Comfort Keeper of the Year 2023

I am Amy Joy. I grew up in Rockport, and now my husband and I live in Warren so yes, I am a true Mainah’! When I first joined Comfort Keepers over ten years ago, I worked briefly in the office, and it was just Paula and I! The company has grown exponentially in the last few years, as the Baby Boomer Generation is cresting in age. All the office staff goes above and beyond the call of duty to make this company work so smoothly. 

I think getting to know your clients is very important to them and to you. One aspect that I was not very aware of before I did elder care, is that every client is a person with a history. Each one has spent their life making a mark on the world whether as a homemaker or a nuclear scientist, a boat builder or a ballet dancer. I think it is important to them that you acknowledge who they are and what they have done.

Everyday holds a variety of activities and plans with my clients. From helping a client get dressed, cooking them a meal, to taking them grocery shopping, or even to the theater!

I have formed good friendships with my clients, and built a trust so they can feel comfortable with me. I think that is important because they are trusting you with their house, their possessions, they are trusting us even with their hearts.  Some of our clients don't have family that are close by, and we become their emotional sounding board. 

Another important contribution we make as Comfort Keepers, is giving our clients the ability to stay at home. This is so important to them, and gives them reassurance in remaining in their home with their familiar settings, possessions and their own schedules. It is also a huge emotional relief for them as well in their later years.

I am proud to work for an in-home personal care company that has such a good reputation and quality of care.

Lynette Carver


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!

Linda Drost


Several years ago I decided to retire, but in my spare time I wanted to work for Comfort Keepers. I had heard so much about them.  Comfort Keepers is an awesome agency to work for! The staff is so supportive and understanding. They schedule work assignments that are convenient for caregivers.

But the best part of working with Comfort Keepers is the privilege of being a caregiver.   Although there are sad times in our job, there are so many more rewarding moments. I am sure many of us think of our clients as an extension of our family.  I can’t think of anything else I would like to be doing.

Steven Roberson


My name is Steven Roberson I live here locally in Hancock County. After retiring from the EMT field of 27 years, I found that I needed something to do that would bring me joy and give me a feeling of being helpful and giving back to others in the community.  I found what I was looking for here at Comfort Keepers. I work with many wonderful clients throughout our organization.  My work consists of many aspects from companionship, errands, meal prep, light housekeeping, med reminders to name just a few. The scheduling team is very accommodating and considerate of my schedule.  The management team here at CK is always available to help us caregivers and assist us with answers to any questions we might have.
