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 an at home health agency that serves the non-medical needs of hundreds of families, including the care of our uncle Denny.
Today, I manage our at home health agency 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 130 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 at home health requirements.
As taught to me by our dad, my 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 Home Care Association of America, the DuPage County Association of Senior Service Providers, Aging Well, Continuity of Care, Women’s Business Initiative, Case Manager Society of America and many others and we are rated A+ with the Better Business Bureau.
To date, we have collected over 10,000 pounds of nourishing food for our seniors!! Yes, that's correct. Over 5 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:

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 a typical at home health agency.
We are proud to be a fully-licensed Illinois Home Service Agency.
