“It’s all about the clients.”

Why I Opened My ComForCare Location

When my mother’s health began to deteriorate, I realized the care I wanted for her was difficult to find. My family and I weren’t close to her geographically, so we looked for help. Instead, we found scheduling inconsistencies, a rotating door of caregivers and sporadic adherence to the care plan from companies. I knew my mother felt her loss of independence very deeply, and I felt frustrated at the lack of quality options. I wanted to make sure other families were able to avoid these challenges by offering compassionate, superior care for their loved ones.

I Love Seeing a Client Smile

The thing that gives me the most pleasure is seeing a client smile and knowing we’re having a positive impact on their day. A lot our clients have been dealt a hand they didn’t anticipate. If we can make their day better, in whatever way possible, we’ve done our job. Sheryl Taubin, our director of client care and a Certified Dementia Practitioner®, will bake cookies or pretzels with clients or do things they may have enjoyed but can’t do anymore. Those small gestures have great benefits on the well-being of our clients. We strive to have those favorable moments every day.
