Discover the heartwarming stories and experiences by those who have benefited from our exceptional senior home care. More and more seniors today want to continue living in the comfort of their own homes with the help of senior home care rather than move to assisted living or nursing home facilities.
At Comfort Keepers Parksville, we take pride in the excellent reputation we have earned through our industry-leading care practices. Not only are best practices critically important to us, we believe the client’s overall health and happiness are equally important components in senior home care. Caregivers are our clients’ helpers, friends, confidantes, and even family.
Our commitment to providing top-notch senior home care services shines through every testimonial.

I want to thank Comfort Keepers Parksville® for the role they played in caring for my late mother, who lived to be 99 years old. My mom was an independent woman and the staff at Comfort Keepers was an integral part in helping her maintain her independence. As Mom’s needs grew, so did the list of services which Comfort Keepers was able to provide. With the onslaught of Covid-19, delivering care and companionship in Mom’s last few months was difficult and complicated. There were days I felt overwhelmed but Comfort Keepers, at all levels, stepped in to help me access community services which Mom needed. Her caregivers always showed compassion and their daily visits ended with a hug for Mom.
I very much appreciate Comfort Keepers’ efforts, services and support which both my mom and I received.

I cannot recommend Comfort Keepers in Parksville enough! The staff has been incredible with my 83 year old dad. He lives alone, can no longer drive and is battling some health and memory issues. Not only do they run errands for him but they help with cleaning, meal preparation, laundry, medical appointments and drug prescriptions… just to mention a few. Liz helped with coordinating all his COVID shots and was also instrumental in diagnosing a serious health issue that could have led to a stroke or worse! Liz, Janet and Makenzie care about my dad like he is part of their family. Because I don’t live on the island it gives me peace of mind that my dad gets weekly visits. I am frequently updated on how he is doing or if there are any concerns. Everyone at the Parksville location always goes above and beyond!

Elaine and I thank you for providing homecare/housekeeping services promptly and competently when we needed them. We were very pleased with the workers you sent, with their politeness and eagerness to help us. They not only kept our house clean, they improved it by doing things we should have done but had not (such as scrubbing the ensuite shower). Jeannine and Kirsten were particularly industrious, working efficiently and finding extra work to do in the two hours available. If we need assistance in the future, we know we can count on Comfort Keepers.

After my mother became ill with a chronic and progressive neurodegenerative
illness, she was determined to fight and stay independent for as long as possible.
Eventually it became apparent that she needed support, although preferred to stay
in her own home with my father. She began accepting services from public home
care after a fall requiring surgery that, along with her progressing illness, made her
unable to continue functioning on her own. Although she had lots of support
through home care, there were limitations to what and how much support they
could provide. Our family tried to help as much as possible, but it eventually became
too much to manage. We initially enlisted private support with another
organization, which ironically increased stress within our family situation. We
eventually realized we needed to make a change and decided to try Comfort Keepers
after hearing positive things about them in the community.
During our initial meeting with the Parksville director, Darcy, we made clear the
challenges we had experienced, and our hopes to find the kind of personalized
support my mom needed to remain in her own home on her own terms. Although
we were hesitant to start over, I am so grateful we did! Darcy was able to quickly
and efficiently facilitate a plan of support that accommodated what we needed. The
staff continued to be flexible and accommodating until, and after, my mother passed
away peacefully at home.
The entire Comfort Keepers team has been fantastic throughout the time they spent
helping our family. Our primary caregiver, Jeannine, brought not only her strong
caregiving skills, but a great personality, sense of humor, and a compassionate heart
to each and every shift that reflected how much she cares about the clients she
works with every day. If you are looking for a flexible, accommodating, and client
centered organization that offers high quality caregiving centering on compassion
and integrity, I would highly recommend Comfort Keepers. We would not have been
able to offer my mother the kind of quality support she received in her last days
without their help. We are forever grateful for their service to us! Sincere thanks to
all of you!
