Our Comfort Keepers Mission
Our mission is to provide our clients with the highest level of quality of life that is achievable. We shall treat each of our clients with the respect and dignity they deserve, as though we were caring for a member of our own family. The special people who deliver our unique brand of home health care (we call them Comfort Keepers®) are carefully selected, screened, and trained to provide professional, compassionate care.
In Knoxville, nearly half of our 90 caregivers have been with us for five or more years - enabling us to take care of your loved ones in consistently high-quality ways.
Our Home Health Care Philosophy
Interactive Caregiving™ is based on four primary pillars, which Comfort Keepers leverage to care for, engage, and interact with our clients:
- An active senior mind promotes independence, better mental and physical health, happiness, and a longer life.
- A physically active senior maintains strength and independence, lessening or delaying the effects of aging.
- A well-nourished senior is more energetic, both physically and mentally.
- A safe senior lives in an environment that reduces the likelihood of accidents and promotes timely response when illness or accidents occur.
With our Interactive Caregiving approach, we are able to raise seniors’ quality of life to a much higher level than typical home health care providers.
