Comfort Keepers Mission
In 2001, Scott and Kelly Wyatt found themselves with a 3 month old and a 4 year old, while trying to share time with Kelly’s family to take care of her dying father. They tried hiring some private sitters to help cover time when no family member could be there; but that did not work out so well. After some research by Scott, he realized that families in the Victoria, Texas area were in a need of a services that specialized in In-Home and Respite care for local seniors and their families. After almost a year of research and talking with several franchiseing companies; Scott and Kelly chose Comfort Keepers and opened the Victoria location in March of 2002.
Comfort Keepers specializes in providing services that allow seniors to remain safely and independently in their own homes as long as possible. Knowing that you can make a substantial, positive difference in the final years of a senior's life; is one of the most rewarding aspects of being a Comfort Keeper.
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.
