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.

David finds fulfillment helping seniors stay independent and he enjoys getting to know his clients personally.
