Senior Care Services and Community Involvement in Home Care Sarasota, FL
Comfort Keepers Sarasota proudly serves the communities of Sarasota and Manatee Counties
Michael and Charlotte Jones started the local in home care Sarasota FL Comfort Keepers office out of their home in August 2000. In 2002, the office finally moved to Webber Street. It was a great decision because Comfort Keepers Sarasota was growing and expanding to provide the Sarasota seniors and their families with the care they need and deserve.
In June 2013, the current office, 3619 Webber St., was purchased and renovated. This new office is large enough to provide quality in-house training and allows for lecture classrooms so our clients may learn about the latest health ideas in home care. This location is centrally placed off Beneva Rd, south of Fruitville Rd. It is close to downtown, near the Bayfront, and between Sarasota Memorial Hospital and Doctors Hospital.
