Both of our owners, David K Yeomans and Joanie K Yeomans, come from families of veterans who have sacrificed for our country from the American Revolution through World War II and the Korean Conflict. We appreciate the sacrifices all veterans made and make for our country and want to encourage all veterans to take full advantage of the medical benefits and home care program options that are owed to them.
At Comfort Keepers, it is our sincere honor to serve these men and women that gave us so much. By keeping them safe and happy in the comfort of their own homes, Comfort Keepers can help to show our appreciation to these veterans by providing the highest quality in-home care possible.

Are You or Your Veteran Family Member Qualified for Veterans Health Care Benefits?
Because applying for benefits with the VA can be complicated and overwhelming, many veterans simply go without benefits that they are eligible for.
At Comfort Keepers Marietta, we appreciate what our veterans have done for us and want to treat them with dignity and respect and will willingly point them in the right direction to receive veterans care benefits.
If you have a question about personal care services or veterans benefits, please call us at (740) 373-7125. We'd be more than happy to provide you with health care program information and care coordination.
