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 in-home senior care (We call them Comfort Keepers®.) are carefully selected, screened, and trained to provide professional, compassionate care.
In 1998, our special-needs uncle lost his lifelong caregiver, his mom, to Congestive Heart Failure. Left with the responsibility of caring for uncle Denny, we interviewed home care
companies by the dozens and even hired a few before finally finding satisfaction with Comfort Keepers. In very little time, it became obvious that Comfort Keepers was the answer to our uncle’s needs. In fact, we were so impressed with Comfort Keepers’ professionalism, compassion, and patience, our family decided to become Comfort Keepers!
In 2001, my sister, brother, father and I opened our Chicagoland Comfort Keepers office. Our dad, Bruce, has over 50 years of home medical care experience, serving Chicago and it’s suburbs through his neighborhood pharmacies; Bruce & Ken’s and his home medical care company, Ultra Care. With our father’s guidance, we have built a home care company that serves the non-medical needs of hundreds of families, including the care of our uncle Denny.
Today, my sister and I manage our business with the same care and attention that first brought Comfort Keepers to our attention. We continue to dedicate ourselves and our company to providing the best possible care to the families of northern Illinois. Together, with over 80 specially-trained caregivers and employees, we tailor our service offerings to the specific needs of our clients. From the fulfillment of simple household tasks to our exclusive Heart Healthy Support program, we provide a wide range of services designed to assist you in your day-to-day chores and care requirements.
As taught to us by our dad, our company is built on the foundations of caring for our neighbors and giving back to the community. To that end, our Comfort Keepers are actively involved in local and national charitable organizations and professional associations. This support includes our work with the Alzheimer’s Association Memory Walk, the Senior Citizen’s Services Coordinating Council, the National Private Duty Association, the DuPage County Association of Senior Service Providers, Aging Well, Continuity of Care, Women’s Initiative, the Senior Resource Alliance of Chicagoland, and many others. We are members in good-standing with the Chicago & Northern Illinois Better Business Bureau, and are active participants in the Life Services Network.
Join us in our fight to end hunger
In caring for our senior client’s we’ve recognized that for millions of seniors across America, hunger and malnutrition are a real issue. In fact, more than 1 in 2 seniors in the care of others are at risk for under-or mal-nutrition. Comfort Keepers is dedicated to helping seniors live healthy, independent lives. Because Comfort Keepers knows that adequate nutrition is critical for seniors to retain their vitality, quality of life and independence, we have started the Serving Seniors Nourishing Lives campaign to help combat senior hunger and malnutrition in America. Learn how you can help by donating food at our local office and other collection sites.
To date, we have collected over 8,000 pounds of nourishing food for our seniors!! Yes, that's correct. Over 3 1/2 tons of food! Thank you to all those participating partners as we work together to fight hunger and malnutrition within our senior community!
Food donations for seniors are accepted at:
Comfort Keepers office, 221 E. Lake Street, Suite 212, Addison, IL
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 in-home care providers.
We are proud to be a fully-licensed Illinois Home Service Agency.
