The Comfort Keepers story began in 1998 when Kris Butler, a registered nurse working in home health care, discovered first hand the need for someone to assist her patients with their non-medical needs. As a nurse she was allowed only to tend to their medical, or skilled care needs.
Sometimes her patients would request something as simple as having a loaf of bread or quart of milk delivered, or to have someone spend just a few minutes in conversation to brighten their day.
Kris recognized she could provide a solution-and today we know that the solution is Comfort Keepers. Comfort Keepers provides non-medical, in-home care services to thousands of people in their home settings by way of more than 700 franchised offices worldwide.
