Comfort Keepers is a company that offers quality in-home care to seniors. Each of the more than 700 Comfort Keepers locations is an independently-owned business. But in each location, our commitment remains the same: to help people live better lives. We’re a community of full of compassion that spans the entire globe. This is more than an assisted living job. Comfort Keepers is a family united by a culture of care. We only hire the best to be caregivers, because that’s what our clients deserve. We want to give clients the same level of care we would offer to our own loved ones.

This depends on your skills, availability, and the position that you desire. Some of our caregivers act only as companions for our clients. This means spending time with them and performing light tasks as needed. Other clients need extra support, such Alzheimer’s care or assistance with some other health condition. Every open position listed in our career center will describe the requirements of the job. Some in-home care requires light housekeeping, meal preparation, and other household chores. Each client has a unique care plan that is tailored to his or her particular needs, where we list the services we are expected to provide. Before accepting a client, your supervisor will go over this list with you. Our most important job, no matter who our client is, is to be there for them. The role of the caregiver is an important one. Clients depend on us to help them live a more enriched and fulfilling life. This is why we’re proud to call ourselves Comfort Keepers.

Every client receives a plan of care. This document outlines the duties and responsibilities expected by the senior that is in your care. We believe that caring for our clients is about more than performing tasks for them. The plan of care includes activities designed to promote a healthy body and mind.

Most Comfort Keepers locations cover a number of towns, cities, counties and/or regions. This allows them to provide immediate care to their clients. It also allows our caregivers to work within a close distance to where they live. The page for your local office will list all the communities it covers.

Yes, mileage compensation for transporting your client is one of the benefits we offer.

Yes. Caregiver jobs can be physically strenuous, which is why we offer workers compensation for all of our caregivers. This means that if you’re injured on the job, you’re covered.

Your supervisor will match you with clients who fit your availability and personality, as we feel it is the best plan for both of you. When your supervisor has found a good match for you, he or she will go over that client’s plan of care with you. If you feel that the plan is outside what you’re capable of offering, simply tell your supervisor and a suitable caregiver will be found for the client.

Many caregivers are students or recent graduates. Let your supervisor know when you have classes, and they can build a work schedule around it. When your classes change, let your supervisor know as soon as possible. This allows them to update your schedule. Being a caregiver is a great way to earn money and gain experience at school.

Getting sick is natural, and we don’t want you to get your client sick. Contact your supervisor as soon as you’re feeling ill so they can get coverage for your client. Caregiver jobs require that you be there for your client when you are scheduled. This reliability is an important part of Comfort Keepers. We expect sickness to occur, but it should be an uncommon occurrence. This allows us to give the best service to our clients.

With Comfort Keepers, you are an employee at your local office. This means we take care of all taxes, just like other employers.

We pride ourselves on compensating our caregivers well. The amount you make will depend on your position, experience, and where you live.
