Comfort Keepers of Fairfax, VA Mission To Help Seniors Through Home Health Care Services
We launched Comfort Keepers of Fairfax, VA in the Northern Virginia area in 2001 with a vision to help seniors at home remain safe and independent. We did this by aiming to be the best home health care services agency in the area. Through personal experiences that touched our lives, we realized that best place for someone live is at home. Our mission is to advocate for seniors and their families as it relates to their daily needs. Through education and hands assistance, we have had the privilege of helping hundreds of families.
About The Owners of Comfort Keepers of Fairfax, VA
When Laura was in college, she moved to Florida to take of her Grandmother, who had recently fallen and was in the early stages of dementia. That grandmother unfortunately passed away in a nursing home and Laura decided to stay in Florida to be near her other grandmother, who was healthy at the time.
A few years later, Laura moved to Northern Virginia while keeping tabs on her Grandmother. She would always say, "do not worry about me, I am fine. I have a great support system in place." After a few years, Mike and Laura went to visit her in Florida. When they arrived it was obvious that her grandmother needed help. She had lost a lot of weight, had signs of Dementia, and her neighbors told them that they were concerned.
Now Laura and her mother began Long Distance Caregiving. They were able to schedule home health care services through Comfort Keepers and get her the short term help she needed before moving her to her daughter's home Virginia. Laura loved having Grandma come to work; she would organize the supply closet, put stamps on envelopes and fall asleep in the training room: examples of Interactive Caregiving which is at the heart of what we do. Grandma passed away at the age of 93 with the care she needed, near friends and family in familiar surroundings.
