Comfort Keepers is known throughout the home care community as the best in providing long term care to seniors and others who require home care services in North Vancouver and West Vancouver. Our mission is to provide high quality care services that enable seniors and other clients to enjoy the highest level of independence and quality of life achievable. We care for each client with the respect and dignity we would provide a member of our own family.
We have a distinctive approach to our care services called Interactive Caregiving™, which heightens our clients’ enjoyment of life physically, mentally and emotionally. Our Comfort Keepers, who are the special people who deliver on our unique brand of long term care, are carefully selected, screened and trained to provide professional and compassionate care. These Comfort Keepers are supported 24/7 by an efficient scheduling team. We do this to ensure that your loved one has a qualified companion to give them the best possible care. In addition to private homes, our wonderful Comfort Keepers are available for care services in retirement and nursing homes, hospitals and other facilities.

Cherian holds an MBA from Queen’s University in Kingston, ON and is a graduate of Capilano University where he currently serves on the University’s Board of Governors. Most of our office and home care staff are also North Shore residents and are thus able to provide local context and advice to our clients.

While we benefit from the systems, processes, standards and training of a large organization, our local ownership and operations focus entirely on North Vancouver and West Vancouver, giving us the unique ability to provide highly customized care services through our partnerships with other senior services that include private and not-for-profit services, from Horseshoe Bay to Deep Cove. We support, and are actively involved with, local not-for-profit initiatives for Seniors such as:
North Shore Senior Services Circle
Comfort Keepers North and West Vancouver is proud to be one of the founding Members of the North Shore Senior Services Circle, a passionate group of local businesses that have come together with a core goal of providing education and services needed by Seniors on the North Shore. We often see seniors struggling to research and understand options available to them and hope to be a one-stop shop for their needs by leaning on each other. We pool in our time, effort and other resources to organize free Senior Service Fairs, Speaker Series and in-home consultations in North Vancouver and West Vancouver.
