Vernon’s first permanent settlement started with fur traders in the early 1800s. The discovery of gold nearby catapulted its initial growth. Eventually, the town blossomed into a major economic hub in the Okanagan. In 1904, it became the largest community in the area and the first to have its own post office. But the Vernonites of back then would likely not recognize it now.
With a population of around 60,000 Vernon is still the largest city in North Okanagan. Of that number, over 20 percent of them are 65 years or older. That means a trusted senior care agency—like ours—is a must. We’re proud to provide home care for elderly Vernonites with the compassionate, professional care that marks the Comfort Keepers brand.
When compared to assisted living, many studies advocate the benefits of in-home care for seniors. Being able to age in place promotes a sense of continued dignity and humanity in patients. It also allows for greater independence than an assisted living home. But providing the services needed to allow for safe, independent living requires help from a certified home care agency.
At Comfort Keepers, independent living for seniors in Vernon is always our end goal. One that is only possible thanks to our licensed and bonded caregivers. In addition to in-home senior care, our staff are also equipped to handle the needs of those with strokes or other disabled adults. To ensure a perfect fit, we design each plan around a patient’s particular needs.

In-home care is so much more than help getting to appointments or running errands. It also involves handling uncomfortable tasks like toileting and providing memory care services.
