Not everyone will become a Keeper. It takes someone special—someone with a loving spirit and caring personality—but also the dedication and desire to receive ongoing professional training and assume an active role in helping others. Qualified candidates must pass a rigorous screening process. Those who become caregivers will be subject to periodic drug testing to ensure the safety of those for whom we provide care.

In return, successful candidates who become caregivers will enter a career field in which they are compensated fairly, offered opportunities to grow, enjoy personal challenge and receive an uncommon level of satisfaction from helping others.

Comfort Keepers caregivers practice Interactive Caregiving™—our proprietary approach—designed to keep a senior’s mind and body active, well-nourished and safe. This means, that while you may be asked to help with domestic and household chores such as meal preparation, light housekeeping and other activities of daily living, you will also be engaging with clients in life, and providing sincere, responsible companionship. Examples of this could include activities together, such as preparing meals, reminiscing over photos about days gone by, taking a walk, doing a puzzle, or accompanying your senior to a community event.

If you believe that you have what it takes, and caregiving sounds like the career for you:
