Small Business Week: Comfort Keepers

ComfortKeepers_logoAs the population of mature adults in Burnaby continues to grow, so does the need for special assistance enabling seniors to remain independent for as long as possible.

Since opening in Burnaby in 2006, Comfort Keepers has provided care to seniors. This care encompasses all avenues including assistance with household tasks like light housekeeping and meal preparation, personal care such as bathing and grooming, companionship services that include conversation, walks, errands, transportation and assistance with hobbies. By providing the right mix of care services, Comfort Keepers helps their clients maintain their independence while continuing to stay safely in their homes.

Through our special brand of home care called “Interactive Caregiving” caregivers engage with their clients in a wide range of physical, mental and social activities that promote their overall health.

Comfort Keepers also think “outside the box” offering services like assistance at weddings and other formal events. Special family events can be chaotic or stressful for those involved, especially if they have to look after a senior family member at the event. By using Comfort Keepers services, they can leave all the transportation and care of their loved one to the caregiver, so everyone can enjoy a stress-free event. Another important service we offer is accompanying clients to medical appointments. This service is especially appreciated by family members who are unable to accompany their loved ones. Comfort Keepers will even take notes to report back to the family afterwards.

Each Comfort Keeper is professionally trained and matched with clients based on personalities, interests, skills and needs– in an effort to develop strong, healthful relationships.
What truly sets us apart from other companies, however, is our caring attitude. We realize that crises in life do not only happen between 9 am and 5 pm – and that is why we offer 24/7 services with a live voice answering calls at all times. “Though the workload at times is exhausting and overwhelming, at the end of the day, the team at Comfort Keepers always feels satisfied that we have been able to make life easier for one senior or family member that day”, says Heather Martin, Owner.
