Meet Local Comfort Keepers® Caregivers
Our team is uniquely qualified and ready to help
Every member of our team is professional and well trained. We conduct a thorough screening and interviewing 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.
All Comfort Keepers pass extensive background checks and complete continuing education. They are insured and covered by workers' compensation insurance to protect our clients and their families.

Begay (Amy) Carr
Amy began her journey with Comfort Keepers as a caregiver back in January 2015.
Right away we recognized her ability to connect with seniors and how proficient she was at taking care of her clients! And she had a keen sense of detail so....
We brought her into the office to help with scheduling. She now applies her knowledge of what clients want and need to her scheduling duties, each day.
Amy earned an Associate of Applied Science Degree from Mid-Plaines Community College, continued her studies for 1 year at Howard University and has her Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) Certificate.
We are very lucky to have her as part of our team!
