Comfort Keepers About Us
When Kevin and Diane Rasmussen discovered Comfort Keepers®, they found an appealing opportunity to go into business for themselves while making a significant difference in the quality of life of seniors and their families. The Rasmussens, owners of the Racine, Wisconsin, Comfort Keepers franchise, considered other in-home care providers.
However, they found that Comfort Keepers offered the most effective brand of in-home senior care, which is called Interactive Caregiving™. This style of caregiving actively engages seniors in their own care–physically, mentally, emotionally and socially. Being involved in their own care enhances independence.
The Rasmussens enjoy helping people who are their parents’ age. Knowing firsthand the concerns that families have for aging loved ones, they are tuned into providing the best, most relevant in-home care possible to enrich the lives of seniors.
They enjoy sharing caregiving responsibilities with families, whose days are filled with many other responsibilities, such as work and caring for children. “We are able to provide families a sense of relief that we can be there to provide care when they cannot,” Kevin says.
He adds, “We want families to know that we take great care in selecting only the best caregivers to become Comfort Keepers. They are all people we would feel comfortable with if they were caring for our own loved ones.”
Comfort Keepers Mission
Our mission is to provide our clients with the highest level of quality of life that is achievable. We shall treat each of our clients with the respect and dignity they deserve, as though we were caring for a member of our own family.
The special people who deliver our unique brand of in-home senior care (We call them Comfort Keepers®.) are carefully selected, screened, and trained to provide professional, compassionate care.
Interactive Caregiving™ is based on four primary pillars, which Comfort Keepers leverage to care for, engage, and interact with our clients:
- An active senior mind promotes independence, better mental and physical health, happiness, and a longer life.
- A physically active senior maintains strength and independence, lessening or delaying the effects of aging.
- A well-nourished senior is more energetic, both physically and mentally.
- A safe senior lives in an environment that reduces the likelihood of accidents and promotes timely response when illness or accidents occur.
With our Interactive Caregiving approach, we are able to raise seniors’ quality of life to a much higher level than typical in-home care providers.
