Comfort Keepers has been in the in-home care industry since 1998, quickly expanding to 12 countries worldwide. The organization has created an in-home care model that leads to award-winning medical and non-medical senior care. Each comfort keeper aims to enrich the lives of each client and their families, providing them with a safe and independent environment at home.
Comfort Keepers first began when Kris Clum, a registered nurse identified a gap in the market for seniors’ who needed assistance with non-medical needs. Clum had mastered the medical side of geriatric care, but was concerned about her patients’ wellbeing once they returned home after a medical treatment. Soon after, the concept of Comfort Keepers was designed and a business model was made that would keep clients comfortable in their home.
